CINCINNATI--The commemorative Trump-Clinton campaign coin from Long-Stanton Manufacturing in Cincinnati, Ohio is a big hit with collectors and non-collectors alike. Since the coin’s introduction, the company has shipped thousands across the country.
The coin depicts a likeness of Mr. Trump on one side facing to the right, and Mrs. Clinton’s on the other side facing to the left.
Long Stanton’s sixth generation President, Marvin Cunningham, stated, “Originally we were just minting them for our customers to show our capabilities and add a little humor to the process. After we sent the Trump-Clinton coins out, the requests for more coins poured in, almost overwhelming our ability to fulfill all of the orders.”
He concluded, “Evidently, we aren’t the only people who are undecided. Hopefully the voter’s decision won’t come down to a flip of a coin, but if it does, flipping our coin could help.”
The 164-year old company’s founder, John Stanton, had minted commemorative coins for the Lincoln-Douglas campaign in 1860. It made sense to continue the company founder’s legacy by minting this Trump-Clinton campaign coin as a keepsake of such a historical election.
