This is the second release in the sensational “Real Heroes” series that follows the immensely popular “Fighter Pilot” coins. In this years issue, it pays tribute to the dedicated Firefighter.
Nobody will forget the heroism of Firefighters facing unimaginable circumstances during the 9/11 attacks. Images of courage and bravery seared into our consciousness forever. More recently, we have seen many images of these heroes in action fighting the wildfires of the world.
This commemorative collectible honors this “Real Hero” by presenting the most stunning coin ever done of the Firefighter. A tribute to not only those who gave the ultimate sacrifice during 9/11, but to all Firefighters that we count on to keep us safe.
This massive 1 Kilogram black proof silver coin measures 100 mm in diameter and features a stunning, realistic image of a Firefighter from the New York City Fire Department. The number 343 on the helmet honors the Firefighters that were lost that day in the Twin Towers.
Thanks to the enhanced smartminting® technology the ultra high relief, partly polished honeycomb pattern and extremely detailed elements reaching to and even over the edge of the coin generate an unbelievable design. The visor that protects his eyes from the dangerous smoke and gases is a unique overlay that makes this coin even more special.
“ONLY THE BRAVE ARE FREE” and the illustration of the original twin towers on the obverse are a matching and worthy statement to honor these real heroes. A ultra exclusive mintage of just 119 kilo Firefighters will be produced.
