The United States Mint has chosen Sullivan Island's Fort Moultrie to represent South Carolina in the new "American the Beautiful" quarter series.

The Fort Moultrie pressing of the coin is set to premier in 2016.

The Post and Courier has some details on the program, the history of the fort, and local response.

But if you just want more hard details, check out the Mint's press release and list of all the sites to be honored.
