Check Out The White House Special Coin Commemorating Trump’s Summit With ‘Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un’

The White House Military Office has released an official coin for the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, which is slated to take place on June 12.

The coin, which is one of just 250 made, features America’s red, white, and blue national colors, while Trump, Kim, and the outline of the coin are silver. Despite all of the president’s fiery rhetoric against Kim — who is a dictator — he is respectfully referred to on the coin as “Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.”

The coin led to a number of people mocking it on Twitter, as there is a chance the meeting will not even happen, as well as others bringing up similar trinkets from past presidents:

As for the summit itself, Trump and Kim are expected to hold the historic meeting in Singapore where they will discuss North Korea’s nuclear weapons program and the possibility of disarmament. The US expectations from the meeting, per National Security Adviser John Bolton, is a road to the complete and total removal of North Korea’s nuclear weapons will be found.

However, North Korea has stated that no such resolution will be reached and threatened to drop out of the summit if the US continues pushing Bolton’s line. This has resulted in Trump worrying that the meeting could be hurt his political brand and has questioned whether or not he should even partake in the Korean summit, per the New York Times

UPDATE –– 7:06 pm ET: White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah said tonight the White House “did not have any input” on the coin:
