September 11 ~ A Day of Remembrance

Sixteen years ago on September 11, 2001, nearly 3,000 people were killed in the worst terrorist attack on American soil. Today, September 11 is a national day of mourning and remembrance for the victims of the attack and to honor the courageous first responders who risked their lives to save others. 

Now, you can join the day of remembrance – and keep the spirit of American resilience alive – with special coins, medals, and other collectibles marking September 11 as the most solemn date in our history. 

  • 9/11 Silver Proof National Medal – .999 Silver.
  • 9/11 Silver Proof National Medal – Gold Layered.

In 2011, the U.S. Mint produced the National Medal to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Struck in one ounce of pure silver and produced to the same proof quality as the finest U.S. coins, it is the same size and weight as the Silver Eagle bullion coin. The obverse features Liberty holding the Lamp of Remembrance; behind her are beacons of light stretching skyward to symbolize the World Trade Center towers in New York City. It has been out of issue since 2011, but the last few medals are still available. The silver medal comes in the original U.S. Mint packaging, while the 24K gold-layered medal is presented in a deluxe wooden display case. This could be your last chance to own the U.S. government’s official September 11 tribute! 

  • September 11th Colorized Silver Eagle.

The Silver Eagle is the official silver bullion coin of the United States, so it is the perfect canvas for artwork commemorating the September 11 attacks. The legal tender coin is struck by the U.S. Mint in one ounce of 99.9% pure silver. One side is colorized with the Statue of Liberty in the foreground and the World Trade Center towers and the American flag in the background, along with the date “2001” and the motto “United We Stand.” A great patriotic tribute, and the perfect gift for anyone whose life was affected by the events of September 11. 

  • World Trade Center Then and Now Colorized $2 Bill.

This genuine $2 bank note was issued by the U.S. government and is colorized with images of the original World Trade Center towers before the September 11 attacks … and the “Freedom Tower” (One World Trade Center) that was built in their place as a symbol of liberty and resilience. The $2 bill is America’s first and only commemorative bank note design, and it was originally issued to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence in 1976. Each colorized $2 bill is a true piece of history that will serve as a reminder of September 11 for many years to come. 

  • Faces of Liberty.

Ever since the founding of the United States of America, Liberty has personified the nation. She is renowned as the defender of democracy and the champion of freedom – and for over 150 years, she has graced many of America’s coins. This collection includes five of the most famous Liberty designs spanning more than a century of U.S. coinage history – including a century-old Liberty Head Nickel (1883-1912) and the New York State Quarter (2001) showing the Statue of Liberty, as well as a Mercury Silver Dime (1916-1945), Standing Liberty Silver Quarter (1916-1930), and Walking Liberty Silver Half Dollar (1916-1947).
