America's invincible maritime force, the Navy has faithfully fulfilled its mission of deterring and defeating America's enemies for more than 200 years, safeguarding the nation's independence and securing its vital global interests.
Committed to avenging the destruction that occurred on September 11, 2001, the expertly trained men and women of the U.S. Navy launched a blistering attack on the forces of evil responsible for the death of 3,000 innocent Americans.
This coin is dedicated to the courageous sailors and airmen of the U.S. Navy, who continue to fight in the name of freedom. The obverse features the unforgettable image of three New York City Firefighters raising the American Flag above the ruined landscape of ground zero. The reverse bears the seal of the U.S. Navy.
