The Silver Eagle of the WTC Vault

As we all know there where found many different $1 silver eagles at the WTC, the correct number of different silver eagles are 21 different WTC silver eagles to collect, it was Tony from the UK I think that pointed that out to me in a comment on one of my post. So 21 different eagles from 6 different years. When I saw different eagles we would count that the year 2001, has a  10 different types. The Gem Uncirculated, MS 68, MS 69. and then we have the eagles in the numbered sets like 1 of 190 etc total of 7 different numbered sets with an 2001 eagle in them.

So to collect all the 21 different silver eagles out there, you would have to get silver eagles from broken up sets of coins and all the eagles from the regular years. I would say the 1 of 12 with the gold bar and the silver eagle is probably the hardest one to get as there are only 12 pieces of that coin.

New WTC coin Never Seen Before

So this to me is a new coin in the WTC coin collection, its the 1 of 12 2001 silver eagle.

1 of 12 $1 silver eagle 2001

A very special WTC Ground Zero Recovery find!

On November 11, 2001 two months after the disaster, this 2001 American Silver Eagle was among those found within the vault. They were taken away by Brinks to a storage facility and subsequently graded by PCGS. There are only 12 of these in existence. This is the most rare silver eagle from a limited grouping of all WTC silver eagles.

This coin is part of a two piece set which was comprised of this coin along with a one ounce Credit Suisse Gold Ingot also marked "1 of 12". Being a "1 of 12" set, obviously there are only 12 that exist slabbed and certified by PCGS. Of the 12 sets that existed, 9 of those 12 sets were owned by one person who's secretary accidentally shipped the 1 of 12 Silver Eagles out as normal 2001 Silver Gem Unc Eagles.  Who knows if or when the others will ever surface as they are probably tucked away just as that ..... normal silver 2001 Gem Unc Eagles. We only have one and what a find this coin is! Link to Auction

WTC Coins Buyers Look Out.

This comment came in from Maelstrom and it has a lot of valid points about the PCGS error coins. Please read and be on the look out. Just as a side note the 1 of 1000 wtc coin series consist of  a 1999 $5 gold eagle MS69 and a 2001 $1 silver Eagle MS69.

By Mr. Maelstrom

Your point about someone perhaps resubmitting a “1 of 1000″ to PCGS for MS grading is a valid one. It could be that the coin failed to go MS68 or 69 and was reholdered by PCGS.

However, the lack of a serial number (as seen on the back of the genuine slabs from Coin Universe/PCGS)is cause for concern. One would think that PCGS would reference the original serial number on the reholdered coin, or at least provide a number or method by which you could authenticate the coin as being a genuine WTC recovery piece. Lacking that, I cannot fully embrace the concept that these are simply “error slabs” by PCGS.

It is just as likely that these are ordinary BU 2001 $1 Silver Eagles($12-$15 currently) housed in fake (Chinese) slabs. I, personally, would NOT acquire any of the “1 of 1000″ issues with the printing to the RIGHT of the word “Recovery” without a physical inspection of the holder first. To my knowledge, PCGS placed the “1 of XXX or XXXX” designations at the lower LEFT of the grading insert on ALL of the genuine limited set coins.

These seem to be showing up on ebay lately. As an example, there is one of these “errors” simply listed as a “1 of 1000″ for sale on ebay as I write this . The slab pictured is blurry and only shows the front. When I asked the seller to provide clearer pictures of the front and back of the slab, along with any serial number, his reply was that “The picture is the actual coin. I don’t see a serial number, just a designation of 1 of 1000. The back of the holder has the PCGS logo.” In other words, the blurry picture is what it is. I’m not saying that he is selling a fake coin, but I am saying that he/she won’t help me make that determination. Hopefully, the seller doesn’t even know the difference. But, BUYER BEWARE!!!

Without some official confirmation from PCGS that these “error” inserts are genuine, and/or an opportunity to physically examine the holder (look for the four ejector pin circles faintly visible at each corner of the bottom section of the holder…fakes lack them…for now), I, personally, will avoid these until they can be proven genuine.

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.

WTC Recovery Silver Eagles

WTC Recovery Silver Eagles are probably in the numbers from 50,000 to 100,000 total Silver Eagles recovered from the vault under the world trade center. The total number is not release yet by PCGS but most people that I have talked to think the numbers is around these figures. Now over 80% of all the coins that came out of the World Trade Center vault was certified by PCGS and Collectors Universe as Gem Uncirculated and not with an MS grading.
