Trump Coin in Russia – level 2

25-01-2017 07:00

There is a new bright and shiny silver coin of Donald Trump. A company in Russia made it to mark his inauguration.

The 12-centimetre piece has the American president profile on one side and the Statue of Liberty on the other with writing: IN TRUMP WE TRUST.

The director of the company, which produced the one kilogram coin, said that the slogan expresses the company’s feelings for Trump’s upcoming presidency.

The company plans to make 45 of these coins which will cost a few thousand dollars apiece. The specific price has not been decided yet.

Trump himself does not have to think about the price of the coin. The company wants to give him one of the unique coins, but first it has to find a way to get it to him.

Difficult words: shiny (reflecting light), inauguration (a ceremony when somebody officially becomes a president), upcoming (happening soon).
