Seventeen 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 collectibles marking September 11 as the most solemn date in our history.
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!
This is the official 9/11 silver medal that was struck by the U.S. Mint to commemorate the 10th anniversary, but it has been richly layered in 24K gold and placed in a golden pendant with a matching chain. A great way to show that you “Never Forget” … but availability is diminishing and you may never have another opportunity to own such a moving memorial to 9/11. The pendant comes in a deluxe jewelry case.
The Silver Eagle is the official silver bullion coin of the United States, and this superb colorized 2018 edition is the perfect way to show your patriotism at any time of year. The legal tender coin is struck by the U.S. Mint in one ounce of 99.9% pure silver. The beautiful “Walking Liberty” side is colorized to bring the design to life, and it is displayed on a magnificent golden stand along with a hand-painted American flag.
The 9/11 silver National Medal was released by the U.S. Mint on June 20, 2011 as the U.S. government’s official 10th anniversary tribute to 9/11. It is also the ONLY such tribute in history. Remarkably, a small number of medals were certified as being released on the first day of issue … and some were also graded as absolutely perfect Proof 70 (PR70). But only 3,647 medals received this special designation, making it one of the rarest and most sought-after U.S. Mint collectibles in modern history … and all but a few have already been snapped up through the years. Best of all, it comes in a custom-designed wooden display case.
