The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 will go down in history as one of the deadliest attacks on American soil and have become a watershed moment for everyone who was alive to witness the atrocity. After several months of searching through the debris, the clean-up crews came across the World Trade Center vaults on November 11, 2001. These crews were shocked to find that most of the coinage had survived the fires and collapse of the twin towers...many of them being the sought after Silver Eagles that collectors have determined to be the #1 Silver Dollar in the world today.

A Truly Iconic Piece of American History

Out of all the gold and silver coins held in those vaults, few are as iconic as the Silver Eagle. Not only is it our largest, purest, and heaviest silver dollar, but these coins surviving the 9/11 terror attacks have made them a collector must-have. Out of all the Silver Eagles certified as “World Trade Center” coins by expert graders the nation over, the 2001 mintage is considered the one that stands above the rest (as it was released the same year the towers were destroyed).

Certified Authentic by Collectors Universe as the Real Deal!

When these coins were discovered, many did not know what to do with them. After awhile all of the coins found within were taken from ground zero by armored convoy to be certified as genuine authentic pieces from the World Trade Center site. One of the primary authentication specialists that confirmed these coins was Collectors Universe, the parent company of the numismatic certification company Professional Coin Grading Specialists (PCGS).

Collector’s Universe has certified that each of these coins is in stunning collector’s quality Gem Uncirculated condition and were actual Silver Eagles discovered within the vaults of the World Trade Center during the aftermath of the attack that November.

This 2001 Silver Eagle was pulled from the Comex vault beneath the towers of the World Trade Center. They were loaded onto brinks trucks and hauled to PCGS for pedigree and certification.

There were 5 different dates recovered: 1987, 1989, 1991, 1993, 2000, and 2001.
