definitely a different coin...the info is in the description.

We've answered many calls and communications. Our own medallion coin is "not identical" to the private run of 250 military challenge coins and, in fact, was planned as a larger commemorative event on our part, alone, for President Trump's second year. We've planned the coin and Christmas & Holiday collection for several months prior to the other work also in the news.

When news broke and indicated that another coin was specifically from The White House Gift Shop, of necessity, we needed to clear the record.

Our coin does commemorate President Trump's second year, his success in obtaining the release of three American hostages from North Korea, and does include the leaders of all three countries in its raised, bas-relief, design, iconographs of America, South Korea, and North Korea as well as peoples are prominent as are the colors of each country with symbolic representations of Americans and Koreans who fought and died for democracy. American and Asian symbols are elegantly used with President Trump on the coin's front and President of South Korea and Leader of North Korea on the coin's reverse.

We will not release an image of the coin until it is ready to deliver to our supporters worldwide who believe in peace and harmony and want our heirloom representation of peace and harmony in the Koreas if not now, soon.

Hundreds of magnificent people from South Korea have communicated with us in hopes that we will fulfill their orders even while summit talks seem stalled at the moment. We will, of course, continue to celebrate the spirit of peace and harmony confluent with innate dignity of humankind. For 70 years, we have supported through many representational products, some fun but many serious, the Presidency of the United States and refrain from poltics.

We support in words, actions, and objects of art America's current 45th President, Donald J. Trump whose office had no involvement in either the DISA or the soon forthcoming WHGS medallion. As a military veteran, myself, challenge coins are special to the 1% who serve in the military to protect the 99%. A gift is endowed with unique engergy and spirit as it passes from the hands of a brother or sister to another who serves and knows. I still have my own father's Mickey Mouse boots from the Korean War and my memories of a favorite uncle, a Silver Star recipient, who carries to this day shrapnel in his neck and spine from combat in Korea. The commemorative medallion and related Christmas and Holiday ornament I designed represents the best of America and Korea, a celebration of diplomatic communication, and an embrace of all those who want to succeed our President in his steadfast effort to secure denuclearization of the Koreas and prosperity for America while recognizing other countries have not only a right but a responsibility to seek and secure their own prosperities through peaceful and fair means (my personal opinion, of course).

Best regards, Tony Giannini, CEO / Director.

Those "hostages" should not be commemorated. They should apologize to America for getting themselves into such an idiotic position. Why the drymount are they being rewarded for their incredible stupidity?

Order cancelled and purchase refunded. Not worth it to me, sight unseen.

That whole spiel would prompt me to ask for a refund, provided I ordered one in the first place.

favorite part of the advanced military coin is the silhouettes of the 2 leaders. They gave 45 a chiseled jaw line (fake news) and he's somewhat lunging forward. And for KJU, they tuck his neck in his collar and he has a somewhat defensive stance.
