2011 September 11 National Medal

2011 September 11 National Medal from United States Mint

Issued in time for the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

The medal's obverse (heads side) features Lady Liberty holding the Lamp of Remembrance. Behind her are beacons of light stretching skyward. Liberty, the lamp and the light symbolize not only the immeasurable loss on the fateful day, but also the resiliency and triumph of those who persevered.

Inscriptions are ALWAYS REMEMBER and 2001 - 2011.

The reverse (tails side) design depicts an eagle, symbolizing the strength of the survivors, the families and the Nation, against a backdrop of cascading water. The flowing water is emblematic of peace, serenity, healing and the continuity of life.
