Singapore unveils commemorative coins for Trump, Kim summit

With the long-anticipated meeting with between President Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un now back on for next week, the Singapore Mint unveiled three commemorative coins on Tuesday for the historic summit.

The three gold, silver, and base-metal medallions commemorate the summit as a "momentous step to world peace" and show Singapore's role as a "neutral host, and an economic and security gateway between the East and the West," according to a news release from the mint.

"The obverse design of the medallion features an affirmative handshake between the two leaders, minted with high-relief minting technique, and the national flags of both countries," according to a description from the mint. "North Korea’s national flag is depicted on the left, while the United States’ national flag is depicted on the right, aptly representing both countries’ position on the political spectrum."

Singapore's commemorative coins, of which only a few thousand pieces have been made, were available to pre-order from the mint on Tuesday and cost more than $1,300 for the gold version, $118 for the silver, and $36 for the base-metal version.

The minting of the Singapore coins comes almost two weeks after the White House released commemorative coins.

TRUMP-KIM COMMEMORATIVE COIN SALE CRASHES WHITE HOUSE GIFT SHOP WEBSITE

The commemorative item features the silhouettes of Trump and Kim, according to the gift shop website. The coin comes in a black velvet case with a plastic protective cover set.

The White House has said it didn’t create the coin and the gift shop notes that the token is different from the one created by the White House Communications Agency.

When Trump first canceled his long-anticipated meeting with Kim, collectors crashed the White House Gift Shop website trying to buy the post-summit coin.

On Friday, Trump said that a high-stakes summit between him and Kim Jong Un is back on for June 12, following a lengthy meeting with a top North Korean official in the Oval Office.

“We'll be meeting on June 12 in Singapore," the president told reporters after the North Korean emissary left the White House.

He called Friday's meeting with North Korea's Kim Yong Chol a "great start.”
