This year marks the ten year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.  Because of this tragic event, the NYPD Fireman & Tactics Section decided to memorialize the event with a custom challenge coins.  These keepsake items will serve as a reminder of the tragedy and encourage others to stand united and never forget.

Two Images on One Coin

The design of the challenge coin has elements of both the Pentagon and the World Trade Center’s which were two of the sites that were attacked on that fateful day.  Since this coin was specifically designed for the NYPD, the Statue of Liberty and all that it stands for made an appropriate symbol to include in the design.  Since its creation, Lady Liberty has embraced the idea of freedom for all people.
