Pentagon Fallen Heroes of 9/11 Congressional Gold Medal Design Candidates

This post will complete the series on the design candidates for the Fallen Heroes of 9/11 Congressional Gold Medals Program. There will be three medals awarded which will later be displayed at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Pennsylvania, the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York, and the Pentagon Memorial at the Pentagon.

As part of the design selection process, candidates for each of the three medals are reviewed by the Commission of Fine Arts and Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee, with the final selections made by the Secretary of the Treasury. Following the award of the gold medals, the United States Mint typically makes bronze duplicate versions available for sale to the public.

Included below are the obverse and reverse design candidates for the Fallen Heroes of 9/11 Congressional Gold Medal to be given to the Pentagon Memorial at the Pentagon.

    Still no comments? A moment of reflection maybe? I would vote for 0-02 paired with R-07 maybe not the best but fitting> Still hope they see the light and make them in silver for the familys? Peace be with them and all of U S:>:>:> :>:>:> :>:>:>

    KEITHSTER – I agree with you on the obverse, but I like R-03 for the reverse, though I would change “SHARED STRENGTH” to “UNITED WE STAND” in a little bit smaller font, if it were up to me.

    All too gaudy -simpler design less bombast…after all we are reflecting on a tragedy not patting ourselves on the back
