More than 3,000 Americans were killed on September 11, 2001, when Al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked US-based airliners and turned the jets into weapons. In all, four jets were hijacked. The targets of the attackers were the Twin Towers in New York City, a symbol of American economic might. The other targets were the Pentagon and, evidence suggests, even the White House. However, passengers aboard one of those planes valiantly fought back and the fourth jet never reached its target. The plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania instead.
In the aftermath of the attacks, America enjoyed a sense of unity not seen since the attack on Pearl Harbor that launched the nation into World War II nearly 60 years earlier. American politics, security, and military activity all took a new turn in the years following the 9/11 attacks.
The obverse field of the silver rounds in the 9/11 20th Anniversary Dawn to Dusk Silver 2-Round Set comes with images of the New York City skyline. These colorized visuals capture the city’s skyline two decades apart and at two different times of the day. The Dawn Round shows the modern skyline as the sun paints the sky above the new One World Trade Center building. The Dusk Round reflects the darkness, and sense of hope, that came in the days after 9/11. Towering beams of light shoot skyward from the base of the collapsed Twin Towers. The Empire State Building is aglow with the red, white, and blue of the American flag.
On the reverse of the rounds in the 9/11 20th Anniversary Dawn to Dusk Silver 2-Round Set is a depiction of the Twin Towers. In this design, the American flag flaps in the breeze behind the massive towers that overlook the harbor.
These 9/11 20th Anniversary Dawn to Dusk Silver 2-Round Sets come with individual Air-Tite capsules for each round and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
