The non-White House gift shop has started taking pre-orders for a commemorative “President Donald J. Trump Defeats COVID” coin.
Last in a series of coins marking moments in Trump’s first term as president, the coin celebrates his “rise and personal defeat against the deadly COVID pandemic virus,” the gift shop website reads.
The coin was priced at $ 100. There was no photo of the coin on the website.
The design of the coin was shared in a statement posted on the website by superhero graphic Anthony Giannini, creator of the series and CEO of the gift shop.
“Like it or not, President Donald J. Trump is strong on a mythical level,” the statement reads, and the design of the coin has been purposely hidden until its release.
Trump told Americans to “get out of there” and not fear COVID-19 when he returned to the White House on Monday after a three-day hospital stay to treat the virus and removed his white surgical mask to pose for pictures.
The Republican president, who ran for re-election against Democrat Joe Biden in the November 3 US election, was admitted to Walter Reed Medical Center on Friday after being diagnosed with the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
The White House gift shop also produced a commemorative coin ahead of the summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore in 2018.
