This Russia-Donald Trump thing just keeps getting weirder.

According to the Huffington Post, a Russian company has made a commemorative coin for the president-elect’s inauguration featuring his face and the words “In Trump We Trust.”


“There are more hopes associated with Trump with regards to the lifting of sanctions; maybe the environment [between the U.S. and Russia] will change,” Vladimir Vasyukhin told the Associated Press Television Network during an unveiling of the 2-pound coin.

Vasyukhin is right to be optimistic about Russia’s future, since the president-elect and Russian President Vladimir Putin can’t stop bromancing all over each other. Vasyukhin told the news station that the coins will sell for thousands of dollars, and his company plans to give the first coin to Trump himself. Surely Trump will love it, since Vasyukhin appealed to all of Trump’s ego-driven vanity: having his likeness on money with God’s name replaced by his.
