REAL HEROES – FIREFIGHTER 2021 Cook Islands 3oz black proof silver
REAL HEROES – FIREFIGHTER – 2021 Cook Islands 3oz black proof silver: This is the second release in our “Real Heroes” series that follows the immensely popular “Pilot” coins. This time, we focus on the Firefighter.
Nobody will forget the heroism of the Firefighter facing unimaginable circumstances during the 9/11 attacks. Images of courage and bravery seared into our consciousness forever. More recently, we have seen many images of these heroes in action fighting the wildfires of the world.
CIT is proud to honor this “Real Hero” by presenting the most stunning coin ever done of the Firefighter. A tribute to not only those who gave the ultimate sacrifice during 9/11, but to all Firefighters that we count on to keep us safe.
Thanks to the enhanced smartminting® technology the ultra high relief, partly polished honeycomb pattern and extremely detailed elements reaching to and even over the edge of the coin generate an unbelievable design. The visor that protects his eyes from the dangerous smoke and gases is a unique overlay that makes this coin even more special.
This 3 oz Black Proof measures 50 mm in diameter and features a stunning, realistic image of a Firefighter from the New York City Fire Department. The number 343 on the helmet honors the Firefighters that were loss that day in the Twin Towers.
Depicts as an insert the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by the inscribed issue details. “ONLY THE BRAVE ARE FREE” and the illustration of the original twin towers on the obverse are a matching and worthy statement to honor these real heroes. A mintage of only 911 will be struck.
It comes presented in an elegant collector’s frame and is limited to only 911 pieces. A certificate of authenticity is enclosed.
