The second release in our “Real Heroes” series which was featured in the winter launch was the Firefighter from the New York City Fire Department. A tribute to not only those who gave the ultimate sacrifice during 9/11, but to all Firefighters that we count on to keep us safe.
Such a special topic deserves some limited, exclusive editions. In addition to the sold-out silver issue, CIT is proud to release the Firefighter in three extraordinary, elite versions.
Featured are a 1 oz Gold, 1 oz Platinum, and a large 5 oz Gold edition that is done in Black Proof. The 1 oz Gold and Platinum are limited to 199. The 5 oz Gold is limited to only 29.
The 1 oz Gold and Platinum show the same high relief design as the original Silver with a sophisticated coloring to create a stunningly realistic impression. The 5 oz Gold is done in Black Proof with the helmet left in the original gold finish to allow for a impressive contrast to the Black Proof surface. The two firefighter extinguishing on the obverse are also left in the original gold finish.
No matter which version you get, you will be holding a premium and extraordinary 9/11 memorabile in your hands.
