September 11 commemorative coins
Description: This collection of commemorative material includes two cased medallions and a lapel pin.

Context: The U.S. military has a long tradition of creating special coins and medallions to recognize special service, give away to visiting dignitaries, or honor other contributions. For the October 11, 2001, memorial event at the Pentagon, the Secretary of Defense commissioned C. Forbes, Inc., to design and produce these commemorative medallions and pins to honor those lost and injured in the September 11 attack on the Pentagon.
