Today’s the day!
This year has been one for the record books, and nowhere is that more true than in the politically-charged 2020 presidential election. Whether you’re backing Republican incumbent Donald Trump or Democratic hopeful Joe Biden, the time is here to cast your vote.
Colorful presidential memorabilia
Of course, collectors from all walks of life enjoy owning presidential memorabilia. With that in mind, Littleton has created colorful pieces to honor this year’s candidates! Colorized with lifelike portraits on the obverses of Kennedy half dollars by Littleton’s artists, these pieces will make a great way to recall this historic race long after the ballots have been counted. The reverse design (which is not colorized) shows a rendition of the Presidential Seal.
Today’s Presidential Seal originated around 1782, for use by the Continental Congress. That small oval featured a constellation of 13 stars surrounded by clouds. Over time the seal changed, finally appearing in its current version in 1960. Following the addition of Hawaii as the 50th state, President Eisenhower signed an executive order to bring the number of stars encircling the eagle to 50.
Great souvenirs for 2020!
Each of the 2020 Presidential Candidate coins from Littleton Coin Company comes presented in a crystal-clear, archival-quality capsule to protect its colorful design. Not only are they fantastic keepsakes, they also make great gifts for friends and family. Just don’t forget to get others the candidate of their choice!
