Twin Towers 1oz .999 Silver Medallion – The September 2013 Silver of the Month

2013 September Silver of the Month

The September 2013 SilverTowne Silver of the Month serves as a memorial of the nearly 3,000 people whom lost their lives in September of 2011 as a result of terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center in New York City, NY, the Pentagon in Arlington, VA, and in a thwarted attack and subsequent plane crash in a field in Shankville, PA.

Hundreds of courageous first responders risked their lives to save others and many died while performing their sworn duty. In the aftermath of the attacks on September 11, 2001, citizens throughout the United States of America and from around the world came together to remember and honor those who died in the attacks. People from around the globe continue to mark this date annually by attending public ceremonies, participating in memorial services, or by simply taking a moment of silence on their own to remember.

The obverse of this month’s featured silver medallion includes a memorialized design of the Twin Towers and the New York skyline. The inscription above the towers states 0848 & 0906, 11 September 2001 (the times and date that the towers were struck by aircraft in the control of terrorists). Inscribed under the skyline is .999 AG 1 TO (.999 silver 1 troy ounce). The reverse of the medallion depicts the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense, which of course is known as The Pentagon. The U.S. flag serves as the background for the building and the logos of the five largest military branches, The United States Coast Guard, Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. The inscription across the top of the reverse is 0943, 11 September 2001 (which is the time and date that The Pentagon was struck by a hijacked aircraft). Inscribed across the bottom of the reverse is the single word Remember! An additional inscription across the middle of the reverse states .999 FS (.999 fine silver).
