On September 11, 2001, deliberate acts of terrorism were perpetrated against the United States of America. As a result of these devastating attacks, 3,000 innocent American lives were lost.
Following the tragedy, the world watched in awe as Americans united in historic fashion to disavow the destruction visited upon their nation by a sworn enemy of freedom, promising to forever remember those who perished and to never forget the sacrifice of those who fell in the line of duty.
This coin serves as a compelling reminder that the costs of freedom are constant vigilance and a ready willingness to defend the principles for which so many courageous Americans have given their lives.
The design of this coin honors the memory of the lives taken that day, representing the Pentagon with its shape, the Twin Towers and in the typography and the American Flag shaped as the state of Pennsylvania where the heroic efforts of those aboard United Flight 93 resulted in their aircraft’s crash in Somerset County. The reverse quotes President George W. Bush:
“America will never run…and we will always be grateful that liberty has found such brave defenders”
This coin is struck in a blackened finish. Packaging may vary.
Each coin measures 1.75″ (44mm) in diameter.
