On November 1, 2001, American Silver Eagles were recovered intact within the Iron Mountain Vault located under the World Trade Center. Under heavy guard, these coins were hauled away by Brinks and stored under lock and key until they were graded and certified.
As I understand the situation, Collectors Universe, the parent company of PCGS did most of the grading of these Silver Eagles, however their "overflow" were sent to ICG for certification. Since PCGS did significantly more grading, ICG certified Silver Eagles are rarer and this one is in MS69 condition! Every time I see this coin, it sends shivers down my spine. It is amazing that anything survived the devastation of that horrific day; yet this Silver Eagle was not destroyed and is still in MS69 condition. This is a truly remarkable piece of history.
As we get closer to September 11, 2026 -- the twenty-fifth anniversary of this horrific event, the demand for these Silver Eagles will rise. Prices will always rise, as there can never be more WTC Recovery coins. Get yours now while it is still affordable. This item is in the category "Coins & Paper Money\Bullion\Silver\Coins".
