MECHANICSBURG, Pa., Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- American Mint, LLC President Kevin Sacher proudly announced the release of new election candidate coins to commemorate the upcoming 2012 U.S. presidential election on November 6. One coin features presidential incumbent Democrat Barack Obama, and the other, challenger Republican Mitt Romney. Available exclusively from American Mint, these high quality "Proof" coins are available in a silver-plated edition, in extremely limited quantities.
"We're excited to be able to make these exquisite coins available just in time for the 2012 presidential election," Sacher said. The edition size for these coins has been set at 9,999 complete collections.
Since 1792, presidential elections have been held. In Revolutionary times, November was chosen because the crops were harvested by then in our agricultural-dependent society, but heavy winter storms had not yet begun, so travel to the county seat by horse-drawn carriage was not yet difficult. 220 years later, although times may have changed, the patriotic sentiment remains the same. American Mint has the candidate coin to honor your favorite!
