On September 11, 2001 the U.S.A was the victim of a terrorist attack that forever changed the lives of millions of people worldwide. Three civilian airliners filled with innocent lives were hijacked and used as weapons to destroy the World Trade Center and a section of the US Pentagon, center of all military operations. A fourth airliner, United flight 93 crashed in a rural part of Pennsylvania thanks to the heroism of a few good Samaritans aboard the airplane according to reports given by the media.
Because of the total devastation at ground zero, there was virtually nothing left to salvage. The few items that were salvaged became part of the memorial dedication at the site of the former Twin Towers. Inside tower 1 of the World Trade Center, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission held what was known to the investment world as the COMEX vaults. Inside this network of vaults was a vast collection of investment grade Silver, Gold and Platinum held by a variety of financial institutions from around the globe. When the Twin Towers fell, no one expected to find anything salvageable.
As the cleanup effort continued, on November 1, 2001 the workers at ground zero reached the Iron Mountain vault located directly under the World Trade Center. Inside were Silver, Gold and Platinum bullion as well as coins from around the world that miraculously survived the disaster. The coins recovered were from various countries around the world, here is the list.
Under high security, the coins were loaded into Brinks Armored vehicles and sent directly to Collectors Universe, the parent company of the world renowned (PCGS) Professional Coin Grading Service. They were then cataloged, graded and encapsulated in the patented PCGS high security tamper resistant capsules along with a specially designed commemorative United States Flag insert that immediately identifies the coin as a genuine artifact recovered from Ground Zero at the World Trade Center. No coin will ever be slabbed with this special Flag insert ever again as it is copyright protected specifically for these magnificent pieces of American History
The World Trade Center Recovered Coins are magnificent pieces of world history brought to you by some very wealthy private individuals. Their introduction into the market created quite a bit of controversy amongst the world numismatic community especially here in the United States. Never the less, they are what they are, history in our time. One thing is for sure, no more of them will ever be made.
 Only 10% to 20% of the entire population in the United States knows that these coins even exist. These coins were not minted from gold, silver or platinum recovered at ground zero in New York as others claim, these coins were actually there and buried under tons and tons of debris. After hundreds of hours of hard work, the rescue workers at ground zero reached the vaults on November 11, 2001 and were then removed by a convoy of Brinks armored trucks under the cover of darkness guarded by an army of security agents.
