PCGS Answers Questions About WTC Coins

So I talked this week to PCGS and to Ken from Blue Moon coins. I just had a few questions for Ken about the 1989 $1 silver wtc coins but PCGS I hadĀ  a lot of questions for them. I got on the phone with a very very nice rep. his name was peter I think his extension is #293 when you call in. He was a go getter and he of course did not know the answers to all my questions, but he did research on it and call me back. I love PCGS they are a very professional company to deal with. So here are the answers peter gave me on my questions.

1. Does PCGS have population numbers on some WTC coins?

Answer: Yes, coins with a bar code on the front is in their system and population numbers on those coins are available. In the start the coins where grade in this way, but soon PCGS reallized that some years did not have very many coins in them and to not make the coins to unique or value driven because of their low population numbers PCGS decided to not keep track of the rest of the WTC coins.

Now here are 2 coins that has a serial number on the front.

1989 wtc silver eagle2001-50-ms70

Now the 1989 silver dollar has serial number 69826.69 (.69 being the grade) so serial number 69826 and when looking the coin up at PCGS it comes back with 11 coins in MS69 and variety WTC. The other coin has serial number 9958.70 (.70 being the grade) again this coin comes up with 3 coins in the MS70 grade. So if anybody is sitting with coins that has a bar code in the front, send me pictures and I will post the population numbers.

2. Now does this mean that their could be other 1989 MS69 coins out there with out a bar code on the front ?

Answer: well yes but I don't know as PCGS has no record of coin without a bar code in theĀ  front.

3. Can I have a list or report on all the coins that PCGS has on record with a bar code on front

Answer: After talking to the person in charge of that coins series, we do not have a record like this but any code with a bar code on front will work in the population look up tool on the PCGS website.

So I show Peter the page wtc911coins.com and he was quite impressed and I think we can count on him for more information if he has any. If anybody has more burning questions I will be happy to talk to him about it.

No to the conclusion of what he said I take it that some coins are registered with the bar code and we can find numbers on them, but more coins not registered could surface and they just don't know one way or the other. I am however glad to know a little bit more about the WTC coins than I did before I talked to Peter from PCGS.

The 2 rare Silver Eagles 1993

e283_1 6313c_01

So what are the story about the MS68 and MS69 1993 $1 Silver Eagle from the World Trade Center, these two coins are by most collectors though of as the most rare WTC $1 Silver coins found at the WTC. On this site the number estimated for each coin is about 120 pieces of each found. However these numbers are always questioned, especially when and very know coin seller comes out with numbers of 20 coins found of the MS69 1993 coin. So if the real number is somewhere between 20 and 120 coins only PCGS knows. But no matter what the population of these two coins are one thing is for sure these are the 2 lowest population coins found at the world trade center for the $1 Silver Eagle. These coins are price between $900 and $2000 on E-bay.

If anybody has any other information to share about the MS68 or MS69 1993 silver dollar please share it here or in our forum.

1 oz gold bar 1 of 426 found

Now this is interesting we now know that the individual that had 426 items at his box at the world trade center at least 3 of the pieces where 1 oz Suisse gold bars. The is a picture of $1 silver dollar also part of the series 1 of 426. The gold bar found under the world trade center is now world famous for having survived the cash of the world trade center buildings. Finding this gold bar under all that cement and concrete is still amazing to me.

Gold bar with serial # 174741

Each gold bar has a serial number from Credit Suisse and this is how these gold bars from the world trade center can be tracked. As no records has been made public by PCGS.

Serial number on this one is 174741 what a gold bar I would love to have one of these again

The 1989 WTC $1 Silver dollar has been seen on E-bay and here is a picture of it. The price on this coin is a little about the 2001 silver eagle in BU certification. All these WTC Ground Zero coins are in so low quantity to begin with and the historical value of the coins can not be changed so what ever coin you have in the WTC recovery series hold on to it as long as you can.
