This beauty has been professionally certified as authentic by PCGS & Collector's Universe. These were slabbed as authentic Ground Zero Recovery Coins. This coin was at Ground Zero on September 11, 2001! While almost everything had been destroyed in the towers, precious coins from around the world were unearthed from a vault in one of the smaller towers, most were never assigned a numerical grade. These became known as the World Trade Center Coins.
In addition, the Bank of Nova Scotia held millions in platinum, gold and silver bullion in building #4 of the World Trade Center. These coins were moved from the vault under World Trade Center #4 from mid October 2001 to the 1st of November 2001.PCGS graded the coins and made them available as singles or in sets. The value of these coins is largely driven by availability. Some are scarcer than others and some are in more demand than others. The American Eagle coins minted in 2001 are the most desirable. The item "Rare Opportunity 2000 WTC 9/11 recovery Aust $15 GOLD coin, PCGS Gem UNC" is in sale since Tuesday, October 13, 2020.
