OHIO TRUMP INAUGURAL MEDAL OFFERED IN SILVER
The E-Sylum (5/7/2017)
UPDATE ON THE TRUMP INAUGURAL MEDAL
It is now over two months since Donald Trump's inauguration and still an Official Inaugural Medal has yet to be approved and issued. Almost daily I am asked if there is any possibility that an official medal will be issued. After consulting a wide array of "experts" and "insiders" I can report without hesitation that I am damned if I know!
One would think that after this amount of time has passed since a medal should have been issued, that there is little likelihood that there will be one. However, this observer is not about to fall into the trap of trying to logically predict what the Trump people will do. I think I can safely say that while the issue is not "dead" it surely is on life support.
Perhaps in reaction to all of this, the Ohio Republican Committee has decided to issue their official Trump inaugural medal in pure silver. An initial striking of 50 medals was made. A small additional striking is expected. As with their bronze medal (of which we have sold over 250) Presidential has been authorized to make these medals available for sale to the pubic. Both bronze and silver medals are available from us as listed below.
