This limited minted
was coin originally commissioned for the Combating Terrorism Depute of the
Department of Defense "BEFORE" the terrorism attack on the Pentagon on
September 11, 2001. The "first strike" SAMPLE Coin not yet minted was lost in
the attack as the office of the commander was destroyed. It was later found in
the rubble during the overhaul and investigation phase of attack. It was then
minted for distribution. Like the "Phoenix Rising From The Ashes," this coin
stands as a symbol of America's fight against Terrorism.
PAYBACK Coin" you can be a part of the "Payback" by owning one of these coins
that symbolically "Rose from the Ashes of the Pentagon then actually flew on
bombing missions on Taliban and Al Qaeda Forces."
The original coin
featured the Seal of the Dept. of Defense on the reverse side. These coins are
available as well as those featuring all 5 branches of the armed services and
some other governmental agencies such as the State Dept. and the Dept. of
The new Combating Terrorism coin created by the Defense
Department's Special Operations-Combating Terrorism office features an American
eagle, with talons outstretched, swooping down on the word "Terrorism." The DoD
seal is struck on the reverse side.
Commanders use specially minted
military coins to improve morale, foster unit spirit and honor service members
for their hard work. The new Combating Terrorism coin does all this and raises
funds for the children of special operations warriors who are killed in the
line of duty. The coin project came out of the office in the Pentagon in the
fall of 1999, well before Sept. 11, 2001. It was their way of spotlighting the
Defense Department's role in the war on terror. At that time, all portions of
the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations /
Low-Intensity Conflict concerned with combating terrorism were in one office.
The chief wanted a coin that epitomized the office's mission.
Paul Will and Jamie Bowling got the call. Design ideas percolated through the
group. "We decided to go with simplistic elegance," said Rowe, assistant for
policy coordination in the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense
for Special Operations and Combating Terrorism. They decided on an American
eagle, with talons outstretched, swooping down on the word "Terrorism." In the
background is the American flag. The obverse side of the coin is the Department
of Defense seal. "Simplistic elegance isn't an easy thing to achieve," said
graphic designer, Bowling. "We spent a lot of time getting the eagle and flag
just right." The group finally approved a design and sent it off for a proof
Made of lead by a company in the United States, the proof coin
was shipped to the Pentagon on Sept. 7, 2001. Rowe and company admired the coin
and he put it on his desk before going to a few meetings and then on leave. He
did not get a chance to show it to the chief and also forgot to bring it home
show his wife. On Sept. 11, 2001, American Airlines Flight 77 hit near Rowe's
office. Ceiling tiles came down, electrical lines arced, and furniture was
thrown around. Smoke damage occurred and water used to douse fires that further
damaged the offices. The coin fell off Rowe's desk and was buried under debris
in the office. After the overhaul and investigation, workers were allowed back
in. They found the lead coin covered with grit and dirt and particles, but
still looking good. With some "SPIT SHINE & POLISH" the coin was presented
to the chief. Rowe said, "We thought now we really have a good time to
release this coin."
