Barack Obama Presidential Coins in Production

A Birmingham company is producing coins depicting Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama as the president. The coins, which have been sold and given to some democrats, were apparently made with at least the tacit permission of the Democratic Party.

This may not be the smartest thing for a campaign that has been accused of hubris on more than one occasion. Besides that, it could makes for a unique fundraiser or reward to some of his loyal supporters. Win or loose, it will likely be a collectible as well.

"A company in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter is making commemorative coins for American presidential hopeful Barack Obama.
The coins already sold to the Democrats will be presented to the senators, congressmen, governors and other politicians they are being given to within the next two weeks.
When they got in touch with the Democrats the party jumped at the chance. And the coins have proved such a hit that locally produced versions have already been launched to compete with the UK originals.
