Trump-Kim Summit Coin Maker Tony Giannini Says He Never Lost Faith

Trump-Kim Summit Coin Maker Tony Giannini Says He Never Lost Faith

After the summit was announced in April, the 70-year-old CEO of the White House Gift Shop decided to make a coin to mark the historic event.

One side was emblazoned with the profiles of President Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un facing one another across the 38th parallel dividing the Korean Peninsula.

Eventually, through his involvement and work with the Secret Service — which used to run the White House gift shop — he got into the business of making gifts for others.

He said he would like for the White House Gift Shop to be transferred over to a presidential library in the future.

The second coin will honor Trump, Kim, and South Korean President Moon Jae-in for his role in brokering the talks.
