‘Very Gold’ Trump Presidential Coin Mocked on Twitter: ‘History Will Remember Him as a Brand’

A report on President Trump‘s presidential “challenge coin” amused many on Twitter tonight. According to The Washington Post, the coin is noticeably different from previous ones:
The presidential seal has been replaced by an eagle bearing President Trump’s signature. The eagle’s head faces right, not left, as on the seal. The 13 arrows representing the original states have disappeared. And the national motto, “E pluribus unum” — a Latin phrase that means “Out of many, one” — is gone. Instead, both sides of the coin feature Trump’s official campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.” The changes don’t stop there. In addition to his signature, Trump’s name appears three times on the coin, which is thicker than those made for past presidents. forget the traditional subdued silver and copper: Trump’s coin, a White House aide marveled, is “very gold.”
However much Trump was actually involved in crafting this coin, it earned quite a bit of reaction on Twitter: [featured image via Christopher Halloran / Shutterstock.com] — — Follow Josh Feldman on Twitter: @feldmaniac
