10th Anniversary September 11th Commemorative Gold Proof

10th Anniversary September 11th Commemorative Gold ProofAs the anniversary of September 11th approaches, there’s a new commemorative tribute with a unique feature: precious metals recovered from Ground Zero.

The commemorative is created using three distinct struck pieces. First, a traditional proof is struck with frosted relief on a mirror-like base and clad in 14 mg of pure 24-Karat gold. Then, the skyline of the Twin Towers and the silhouette of the USS New York, clad in a total 14 mg .999 pure silver recovered from Ground Zero, rise up into a 3-dimensional sculpture.

A little background here: the USS New York was made with steel from the World Trade Center. The steel was poured into the molds on 9 September 2003, cast to form the ship’s bow. One shipyard worker, Tony Quaglino, said: “I was going to go in October 2004 after 40 years here, but I put it off when I found out I could be working on New York. This is sacred and it makes me very proud.” The USS New York was christened on 1 March 2008, in a ceremony attended by members of the New York City Police Department and the New York City Fire Department, and family members of September 11 victims.

This historic three-piece commemorative proof comes with Double Verification, confirming its 24 karat gold and .999 Ground Zero Recovery Silver contents. Part collectable, part work of art, and all a tribute to the United States of America.
