How Trump Coins Became an Internet Sensation

“For the Black Hat people, I have bad news, because AI is only going to get better and better at this,” he warned, adding that in the past, Stone Force “didn’t care much about compliance” because its Advertisements were generally approved. Now it is considering hiring a dedicated adherent to comply with the advertising rules, he said.

Rachel Edwards doesn’t remember where she first saw the coin, but she thinks it was an ad on Facebook. Ms. Edwards, a mother of three from Alabama, said the coins immediately caught her eye – and so did the price, the value of a single coin being nothing more than shipping and handling.

“So I ordered five,” she said.

They arrived in about a week, packed inside a plain cushioned envelope. The coins looked good, each in a protective plastic case, and she said they had enough weight to indicate they were real silver.

But there was something wrong.

“The bag they came in personally had only one sticker that read, ‘Made in China,'” she said.

Neil Siegel, a Colonial stamp and coin dealer in Kingston, NY, tested other Trump coins purchased from the Raw Conservative Opinion Store. He used a device that detects precious metals.

He did not find any gold or silver. The coin was also magnetic, indicating that it was mostly made of iron.

Jack Batelick, a gold appraiser at PRS Gold Buyers in Newburgh, NY, tested the coin using a nitric acid solution. After he planted a blob on Mr. Trump’s golden image, the area darkened, bubbled and then turned green.

“It’s paint,” he concluded.

What was its value?

“Nothing,” he said.
