After consultation with the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts and National September 11 Memorial & Museum, and review by the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee, the United States Mint recommended an obverse (heads side) design by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Donna Weaver. It features Lady Liberty holding 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. For the reverse (tails), the United States Mint recommended a design, also by Weaver, depicting 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. In remembrance of September 11 attacks, Eastern Numismatic was able to secure small quantity of these incredibly beautiful proof medals with a companion book “American Heroes” and will be offering these medals on a first-come first-serve basis.
