  • Issued on behalf of the British Virgin Islands
  • Issue Limit: 10,000
  • Unique presentation pouch


In a spirit of respect for those who so sadly lost their lives following the events of 11 September 2001, the Government of the British Virgin Islands has approved the release of two very special commemorative coins in memoriam to those who have lost their lives and in honour of the people of New York who are determined to continue to live a life of freedom.

The first coin depicts the Twin Towers against the Manhattan skyline with the date 11 September 2001 and a legend in a ribbon placed in the foreground stating simply ‘Lest We Forget’. This coin is released in unc. Cupro Nickel, Proof Sterling Silver and Proof Fine Gold and a limited number of the silver and the gold will be available with a special hologram, struck into the two Tower Buildings, recalling the special laser beams introduced as a memorial for a short period of time earlier that year.

The second coin depicts an image of the head and eternal flame of the Statue of Liberty.
