Shop selling ‘Trump defeats COVID’ coins

A gift shop is cashing in on Donald Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis by pre-emptively selling commemorative coins marking the US president defeating the deadly virus.

The limited edition coin, titled “President Donald J. Trump Defeats COVID”, is available to pre-order from the White House Gift Shop website, with the item priced at $100 ($A139) a piece.

The White House Gift Shop is not the official gift shop of the White House and the commemorative coins being sold on the website are not officially approved or sanctioned by the US government.

Trump is currently still being treated for COVID-19 at the Walter Reed military hospital in Maryland where he was flown on Friday night after his symptoms worsened.

Despite the president still needing medical care, the White House Gift Shop had decided to pre-emptively mark his return to full health with an expensive commemorative coin.
