Weeks after the tragic September 11th, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center, workers at ground zero reached the Iron Mountain Vault. Buried beneath hundreds of tons of rubble, this depository (the official COMEX depository) held a vast amount of investment grade precious metals held by fiscal institutions from around the world. Under heavy security, the coins were loaded into Brink Armored vehicles and sent to be cataloged, graded, and encapsulated by PCGS. These slabs have a specially designed commemorative United States Flag insert which serves to easily identify the coins as a genuine artifact of this catastrophic event. The 1 oz Gold American Eagle is the most popular Gold bullion coin in the United States, and also one of the most beautiful. Its classic obverse design features Lady Liberty walking confidently against the sun’s rays, while a family of American eagles appears on the reverse. Minted at West Point, N.Y., and guaranteed by the United States government, this Gold bullion coin has a symbolic face value of $50.
