Commemorate America’s unbreakable spirit with this Pentagon Phoenix Project challenge coin. Give as a gift and celebrate the fierce resolve that lies at the foundation of this great country.
The actions of terrorists on September 11 caused unthinkable pain for the brave souls on American Flight 77 and those inside The Pentagon. From the rubble of that deadly attack rises the Pentagon Phoenix Project. The Department of Defense is committed to rebuilding and renewing the Pentagon even better than before. This coin recognizes both those who lost their lives that day as well as the efforts of those who are rebuilding the Pentagon.
The obverse of the five-sided coin highlights the impacted section that has risen even stronger than before. The text surrounding the image quotes President George W. Bush, “Terrorist Attacks can shake the foundation of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America.” The reverse contains the official seal of the U.S. Department of Defense.
Minted in a brass alloy, this coin contains an antique bronze finish, and measures 2 inch x 1 7/8 inch.
