The commemorative coins pay tribute to the bicentennial writing of the national anthem by Francis Scott Key after the bombardment of Fort McHenry in September 1814 during the War of 1812.Key was so moved by the flag still flying that he wrote a poem he named "The Defence of Fort McHenry," thinking it should be sung to the tune of the popular British melody "To Anacreon in Heaven.",
Having already been renamed "The Star-Spangled Banner," President Woodrow Wilson in 1916 ordered the song to be played at military ceremonies.On March 3, 1931, President Herbert Hoover signed a resolution passed by Congress that officially designated it as the U.S. National Anthem.Coin Designs
