As we continue to commemorate the lives lost and affected on
September 11, 2001, the 2015 9-11 Commemorative Coin features an image of Callery
Pear tree blossoms with the words “Honor and Remember”. The reverse side shows
an image of the Survivor Tree as it stands today on the Memorial Plaza,
accompanied by the phrase “Bearing Witness to Renewal and Shared Strength”.
C. Forbes, Inc. is proud to continue its partnership with
the 9/11 Memorial Museum which serves as the country’s
principal institution concerned with exploring the implications of the events
of 9-11. The Museum displays artifacts associated with 9-11 and explores the
continued significance of the attack while presenting stories of loss and recovery.
