SILVER AND GOLD TRUMP DOLLARS OFFERED
The E-Sylum (4/16/2017)
Trump Dollars are being sold by Bernard von Nothaus in gold and silver.
The first 25 one-ounce gold pieces that he called trial strikes were offered to buyers in an online auction that closed April 10.
Proof-like and proof gold pieces were struck as well.
Von Nothaus is offering one-ounce silver versions and special proof collector versions.
The pieces are struck by Bill LaMere at the North American Mint, Von Nothaus said.
The design is very similar to last year’s Trump campaign medals created by Von Nothaus called “Vote Trump Dollars,” which were issued during the presidential election campaign. A second version was created for the inauguration.
Though the reverse calls each piece a Liberty Dollar with denominations of $2,000 for the gold and $25 for the silver, there is a disclaimer inscribed around the rim as well stating, “Free Speech for Political Purpose • Not To Be Used As Current Money.”
Under the values are the letters “MSRP,” which usually means “manufacturer’s suggested retail price.” The gold Trump Dollar struck with a proof-like finish measures 32mm and contains one troy ounce of .9999 fine gold. The silver Trump Dollar in brilliant uncirculated condition measures 39mm and contains one troy ounce of .999 fine silver.
