In 2018, US President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un were scheduled to meet in Singapore on June 12.
However, the international situation has changed dramatically. The two sides of the meeting suddenly announced the cancellation of the meeting.

For this historic meeting, the White House souvenir shop in the United States booked a batch of 24 k gold plated commemorative coins for sale on the official website.
There are two commemorative coins, one with a price of $24.95 and one with a price of $75.

If the meeting be canceled,the white house souvenir shop can stop selling,that’s it !while they decided to make a discount.
The original $24.95 commemorative coin was sold for $19.95, while the $75 priced
commemorative coin was sold for $59.the pages of the White House souvenir shop couldn't be opened. Some people speculated that the amount of purchases might be too big.Because This commemorative coin is actually a limited edition, a total of 250 issued.
