Cincinnati, Ohio, July 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saturday, September 11, 2021 will mark the 20th anniversary of one of the darkest days in America’s history. On that date twenty years ago, terrorists attacked both our country and the American way of life. Osborne Mint has crafted the September 11th 20 Year Remembrance solid silver round to honor and remember those that lost their lives on that day.
Founded in 1835, Osborne Mint is the oldest privately owned and operated mint in America. During their tenure, Osborne Mint has struck commemorative rounds for presidents, challenge coins for all service branches and a plethora of collectible rounds in remembrance and celebration of historic events.
On that fateful Tuesday twenty years ago, America lost nearly 3,000 lives. The terrorists hijacked four commercial airliners: two were flown into the World Trade Center in New York City, one into the Pentagon in Washington D.C. and another plane downed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. These actions solidified the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack as the deadliest aggression on American soil in history.
“As we pass the duty of remembering this tragedy to the next generations, it should be as a source of pride that we not only share the tragic events of that day and the numerous repercussions but also pay tribute to all those passed and honor those that came together in support of one another. It is my sincere hope that this collectible initiates conversation, by commemorating all those that lost their lives that fateful day,” stated Gibson Olpp, Marketing Manager, Osborne Mint.
Osborne Mint commissioned the exclusive, limited edition, one troy ounce, .999 fine silver collectible round September 11th 20 Year Remembrance to honor all the innocent lives that were lost and the numerous families that were altered forever. The face of the round shows the remains of the partially collapsed North Tower at ground zero, honorably draped in the presence of the American bald eagle and countered by the American flag. The 9/11 date and the words 20th Anniversary are minted on the face of this collectible. The foreground shows an earthmover clearing the rubble, signifying America’s relentless desire to not give up and push through. The entire piece depicts how, as a nation, we came together and refused to lose hope.
The Americana of the coin’s reverse hosts the fully unfurled American flag, wings of the eagle, a shield outfitted with stars and stripes and a banner displaying USA. The page turn, die struck round also shows the classic Osborne Mint stamp signifying quality, authenticity, and artisanship along with “.999 Fine Silver” and “One Troy Ounce.” The September 11th 20 Year Remembrance solid silver commemorative round also hosts reeded edges and comes packaged in an individually packaged protective plastic capsule.
The silver version of the September 11th 20 Year Remembrance is available exclusively at Osborne Mint’s Shop The Mint ecommerce website – www.Shop-The-Mint.com.
Select distributors will feature a .999 pure copper, 1 AVDP ounce version of this collectible, with the same inspiration and mastery of the silver piece. These distributors include: JM Bullion, SD Bullion, Bullion Shark, and Hero Bullion.
