The Revolutionary Mint spared no expense in creating this Historic Presidential Inauguration Medallion. Mintages this small are considered micro-mintages and are very expensive to manufacture due to large initial set-up costs that don`t get spread over large volumes of coins.

THIS PROJECT WAS A VERY SPECIAL PROJECT FOR EVERYONE INVOLVED.
We commissioned some of the most experienced and reputable coin designers, sculptors and die makers in the United States to design and layout the artwork, sculpt the plasters and manufacture our dies. Our graphic artists have designed numerous coins for the US Mint, Royal Canadian Mint, PAMP, Provident Metals, Great American Mint, Perth Bullion, Shetland Bullion, and numerous other mints and dealers around the world.
Our die makers have been manufacturing dies for the coin industry for more than 40 years and are some of the most experienced die makers in the business. Both the Image of President Donald J. Trump on the obverse as well as the SEAL OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES on the reverse required an extremely detailed three dimensional sculpt on plaster. Our master sculptors required dozens of hours to create the plasters that were subsequently used to manufacture the three dimensional metal dies necessary to mint the highly detailed obverse and reverse.
Not only is every coin individually numbered, but every coin is edge-marked with the INAUGURATION DATE, The LIMITED EDITION SIZE, The SILVER WEIGHT and PURITY plus the COIN`s INDIVIDUAL SERIAL NUMBER.
These details are individually engraved through special edge-marking equipment operated by skilled technicians.
Edge-marking makes use of a space typically left for coin ridges. There are reasons it is rare to see edge-marking on coins and medallions;
Edge-marking requires more money, more labor, and specialized equipment. Dies are used to make the obverse (front) and reverse (back) of coins and medallions. By adding edge-marking, the die costs increase by almost 50%. Edge-marking requires a third die be designed and manufactured for special edge engravings. Edge-marking is a labor-intensive process as each coin must be placed and removed individually into the edge-marking equipment in a precise position or the coin will be ruined (and scrapped). The time requirement to mint a coin or medallion with edge-marking more than doubles since the edges cannot be engraved until after the coin has been fully coined (minted) with both the obverse and reverse designs.
- Few mints own edge-marking equipment or have skilled engravers to handle the tedious process.
It is even more rare to see TWO (2) edge-markings on any coin or medallion.
These medallions have a second edge-marking with the coin`s serial number engraved (0001 – 1500). Our engravers had to handle every coin by hand a second time utilizing a different engraving machine which required additional skill and precision. Each coin`s serial number was applied after the coin was fully minted and after the first edge marking was engraved.
These medallions are being minted on proof “premium quality” highly burnished blanks. These blanks were hand selected. Proof blanks cost significantly more since they cannot have blemishes, spots or other “bag marks” allowed in “Brilliant Uncirculated” or “BU” products. Only the cleanest and brightest blanks qualify for proof-like. Not only are the blanks the highest quality, proof blanks are run completely by hand with no mechanized feeding into the minting press. No chance can be taken that the blanks or fully struck medallions can touch any metal object and therefore obtain blemishes that would disqualify it from being proof-like. These Trump Presidential Inauguration Medallions were all minted on proof blanks and were each hand-fed and struck not once but 2-3 times. Each strike utilized more than 250 tons of pressure to ensure deep and defined fields and surfaces.
Each President Trump Inaugural medallion comes with a high quality Certificate of Authenticity. Each certificate is numbered with the same serial number as each coin. These are large significant certificates on heavy card-stock quality paper. They include information concerning the limited edition and your individual medallion.
In addition, each certificate will have a nicely designed envelope to protect the numbered Certificate of Authenticity for generations to come.
These certificates are large 5″ X 5″ certificates.These envelopes are large 5.50″ X 5.50″ quality envelopes:
