A brief annotation
CIT releases a tribute to firefighters all over the globe to commemorate the 20 year anniversary of the unimaginable disaster of 11 September 2001. They are the true heroes of our time, the ones who rush into a building when everyone else only wants one thing: to be as far away as possible.

CIT set a numismatic monument to them. Firefighter features the three dimensional portrait of a firefighter with crash helmet and breathing mask. On the helmet, which was created after the model used by the members of the New York City Fire Department during the mission of September 11, the number 343 is engraved to commemorate those who died in that fight. The height of the relief is breath-taking, the colors are so realistic that we almost experience the fireman’s fear ourselves. Nevertheless, his eyes tell us that he’ll do what firemen do: WE RUSH IN WHEN OTHERS RUSH OUT, as one can read on the rim at the left.

Firefighter is a numismatic tribute to the heroes of 11 September 2001 and to all the true heroes of our daily life who extinguish fires around the world to save, rescue and protect people.
