Retail “A Silvery Tribute to All Who Were Lost on That Tragic Day”
posted by August 27 at 13:00 PMon
The National Collector’s Mint makes history with the release of this Government Authorized non-circulating Liberian legal tender September 11th commemorative. This $20 Silver Leaf Coin-Certificate displays a standard $20 denomination on one side. But on the other side, it’s the first time ever that two separate denominations have been used to add up to the full $20 face value—it uses 9 and 11 to commemorate the 7th anniversary of the World Trade Center tragedy.
On the front, the frosted Twin Towers stand out against a mirror-like background, double dated 2001-2008 with our promise – “We will never forget!” On the back , the Statue of Liberty heralds a stunning design of the new Freedom Tower skyline in a silvery tribute to all who were lost on that tragic day.
So for $20 (plus shipping and handling), you can purchase a $20 Commemorative, essentially commemorating the $20 you just threw away on this garbage. But this isn’t just a $20 Commemorative—it’s a September 11th $20 Commemorative.
I like non-circulating Liberian legal tender as much as the next person, but this is just gross.
