Trump Coin in Russia – level 3

25-01-2017 07:00

A Russian company has made a silver coin of Donald Trump to mark his inauguration, and it is bright and shining in its presidential glory.

The 12-centimetre piece, bearing the American president profile, has the Statue of Liberty on its other side with the 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 issue 45 of these coins, which will cost a few thousand dollars apiece, though the specific price has not been decided on yet.

But Trump himself doesn’t have to be put off by the price. The company wants to give him one of the unique coins, but it is trying to figure out just how to get it to him.

Difficult words: glory (a feeling when you are famous), inauguration (a ceremony when somebody officially becomes a president), put off (make somebody not do something).
