The sum of the first 9 consecutive prime numbers = 102, a perfect square.
9 is the smallest April Fool prime.
For every prime p with p not equal to 2 and p not equal to 5, there is some number with all digits equal to 9 such that p divides evenly into this number.
There are no consecutive-digit primes starting with 9 with digits in descending order. [Madachy]
Define a certain number of irregularly marked points, n, along the rim of a paper circle, then cut along straight lines that join all possible pairs of points. If n = 9, a prime number of separate pieces will be created. 163 to be exact!
The smallest odd Giuga number must have at least 9 prime factors.

19, 109, 1009 and 10009 are primes. No other digit can replace the 9 and yield four primes. [Friend]
The number of known positive integers which are the sum of two primes in exactly two ways is a prime square. [Capelle]
2^^n-9 = 2^(2^(2^(....(2^2)...)))-9 is (for large enough n) always divisible by both 7 and 11. Note that 9 is midway between 7 and 11. [Hartley]

9 is the only number m such that m = ((m)!). [Firoozbakht]
The only non-prime digit that is the difference of consecutive squares. [Silva]
The smallest composite number n such that both 2n+n and 2n-n are prime. That is, 29+9 = 521 and 29-9 = 503 are prime. [Poo Sung]
