This project began with my disappointment (or perhaps even disgust) with President Trump. He has an ongoing propensity for saying outrageous, false, and misleading things.
In August 2020, he threatened to cut funding to the Postal Service in order to improve his chances of winning the upcoming election. And in that same week, he voiced support for a House Republican candidate who openly supports fringe conspiracy theories.
All of this got me thinking about what might happen. Perhaps Trump might privatize the United States Treasury and cede its control to the "Franklin Mint." Under previous administrations, a thought like this would never be taken seriously. But now, I'm not sure it stretches the bounds of improbability.
Although I'd hate to see a thing like that happen, it would be fairly awesome if the first series of coins the new agency were to mint resembled my "Medals of Unsubstantiated Belief" including:
Each set of medals comes in a commemorative case made of 1/4 inch black acrylic and anodized aluminum which measures approximately 8.5 inches square. The "Standard" version has a 1/8 inch thick grey top and the "Deluxe" version has a 1/4 inch thick black top. Both have brass hinges and a magnetic closure.
