The creator of the Liberty Dollar, Bernard von NotHaus, is issuing
gold, silver and copper versions of an Inaugural Trump Dollar to mark
the Jan. 20, 2017, inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th
president of the United States.
The designs for the Inaugural Trump Dollars are adapted from Trump
Dollar medallions issued by von NotHaus before the Nov. 9 general
election. The inscriptions have been modified for the Inaugural Trump
Dollars to reflect the election’s outcome.
The obverse of each Inaugural Trump Dollar bears a portrait of
Trump, with the inscription above, UNITED STATES PRESIDENTIAL
INAUGURATION. WORLD / PEACE appears bottom, right, with DONALD J.
TRUMP / 2017 in two lines below. On the presidential campaign Trump
Dollar medallions, the top border inscription reads TRUMP THE
GOVERNMENT, with VOTE TRUMP / 2016 below.
