On September 11, 2001, nearly 3,000 people were killed in terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Arlington, Va. - across the river from Washington, D.C. - and in a thwarted attack and subsequent plane crash in a field in Shanksville, 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, people throughout the country and around the world came together to remember and honor those who died in the attacks.

 

The medal has been created by the United States Mint to commemorate September 11, 2001 - a day that changed our Nation and world forever.  This medal's design is intended to exalt the memory of those that sacrificed their lives or were injured, and the families who continue to show dignity and strength in the face of terrible loss.

 

The obverse features Lady Liberty holding up the Lamp of Remembrance. Behind her are beacons of light stretching skyward. Liberty, the lamp and the light symbolize not just the immeasurable loss on that fateful day, but also the resiliency and triumph of those who persevered. Inscriptions are ALWAYS REMEMBER and 2001 - 2011.

 

The reverse depicts an eagle, symbolizing the strength of the survivors, families and Nation, against a backdrop of cascading water. The flowing water is emblematic of peace, serenity, healing and the continuity of life. Inscriptions are HONOR and HOPE.

 

A gold-plated, sterling silver, rope-trim bezel frames the gold plated September 11 National Medal, which hangs from a polished bail. Included with the pendant is a polished, gold-plated, sterling silver rope chain necklace, which fastens securely with a lobster claw clasp.
