The Commission of Fine Arts and Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee have recently reviewed design candidates for the three Congressional Gold Medals which will be awarded in honor of the men and women who perished as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Public Law 112-76 enacted on December 23, 2011 authorized the award of three medals which shall be given to the Flight 93 National Memorial in Pennsylvania, the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York, and the Pentagon Memorial at the Pentagon. The designs are to contain suitable emblems, devices, and inscriptions as determined by the Secretary of the Treasury. The Secretary is authorized to strike and sell duplicates in bronze to be made available for sale to the public.
Shown below are the design candidates for the obverse and reverse of the Fallen Heroes of 9/11 Congressional Gold Medal to be given to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York. The candidates for the other two medals will be shown in separate forthcoming posts.
