The $100 “Trump defeats COVID” coins are for sale on the website of the White House Gift Shop, which is not affiliated with the White House.

The coin is part of a series designed by Anthony Giannini, chairman of the White House Gift Shop. He described the COVID-19 coin as the last in a series illustrating "President Trump's ascendance over and defeat of the deadly COVID pandemic virus."
I wish this was a joke.

"Trump defeats COVID"

When I first heard it, my thoughts were of Thomas Dewey holding up a newspaper declaring his election victory over President Truman.

I chuckled, then the cringe set in.

Also holy sh-t what a godawful way to cash in on a pandemic.

BTW these are not coins. These are medallions,medals or rounds. Coins are legal tender and are minted officially by the government. Medallions, medals or rounds are round metal pieces that are not legal tender and can be made by anyone. "Round" refers to non-legal tender round pieces of metal made out of silver, gold or some other precious metal usually for collecting bullion. It is also illegal to put a living person's face on our currency although there are a few exceptions made by congress.

This would be an example of a silver round.Unless these are really popular they will never be worth more than the silver they are made out of.

Consider your audience. When she has nothing intelligent to say (which is almost all of the time), she just pulls things from her backside.
