Just in time for Saturnalia. The Sarah Palin gold medallion.

Courtesy of Alaska Mint:  

This Bronze medallion honors Alaska's Sarah Palin. As Alaska's first woman Governor, she had a reputation of being against "business as usual". She was thrust into the national spotlight when she was chosen to be John McCain's vice presidential running mate. A donation from the sale of these medallions will be made to Wounded Warrior Project, helping seriously injured service members. (You know, after Palin gets her cut that is.)

This item goes for $24.99 and is one of many to choose from. Including the 2012 version.

 I take it this was from back when Palin was still teasing the ignorant that she might run against Obama in 2012. Which the more intelligent among us knew was mooseshit right at the start.

There are some in the collection that are more expensive like this one for a cool $134.00.

How anybody can justify blowing over a hundred dollars on Sarah Palin medallion/coin is beyond me. Especially considering the fact that if history is any indication it will rapidly go down in value, or prestige, right along with everything else with which her name has been associated.

Right John McCain?

P.S. You know they keep referring to this as a "medallion" because it is not legal tender and was not officially minted by the United States, so it cannot be called a coin. Though it does resemble one.

If it WERE a coin it might be the first one in which you could not win a coin toss. Because, as with everything having to do with Sarah Palin, heads you lose, and tails you lose.

    It is a coin, just not worth a cent, counterfeit, and.phony, just like its face value!

      "What's in it for us"
      How much is she getting and there is no gold in that coin for 24.99!!!
      How flippin' stupid and that pic doesn't even LOOK like here!
      A slug is right!

  2. Anonymous3:54 AM

    *LOL* Has finally reached her full value.. a frigging slug that will jam up a vending machine.

  3. Anonymous3:58 AM

    Does it mention anywhere in the promotional screed that she quit after less than half her term of office? All of this phony fund raising for "wounded warriors" makes it seem as if there is no such thing as the Veterans Administration and as if the Obama Administration has not bent over backwards to help service people and their families during and after tours of duty. It's the GOP that keeps wanting to cut funding for veterans, wounded or whole. Such hypocrisy! Why, Sarah, it's absolutely "unchristian" of you to be such a hypocrite!

  4. Anonymous4:31 AM

    What's next? A giant statue of her in gold where people bow down? Who in their right minds would allow their faces to be minted on a coin? What has she done to deserve that?

    Her ego and her incessant need to sell herself for money is scary.

    The Hollywood Walk of Fame is next. After all, Sarah is The Queen of All Media.

    I'll be darned, Sarah Lou Clampet immortalized on gold(ish) coin. It'll be good legal tender in the dystopia they create.

    Bronze is what you get for third place right? Or third rate?

  8. Anonymous5:50 AM

    Bronze is the color of Obama's skin.

      @5:50 OOh, did I strike a nerve there granny? Little sensitive about being bested by the uppity bronze guy? Sucks to be you.

    2. Anonymous9:29 AM

      Bronze is beautiful and presidential.

  9. Anonymous5:55 AM

    The likeness of Granny Pee on the 2012 "medallion" is uncanny, complete with the hog jowls she sported at the time (since surgically removed).

    And congratulations to Alaska Mint, who have achieved the impossible by actually diminishing the value of gold itself through the minting of these laughable fake coins.

    Hannity, Atheist Go Head-to-Head in Heated Battle Over the War to End All Wars on Christmas™

    And lo, upon the studios of Fox News one Friday the 13th did Sean Hannity engage in a fiery duel in the War on Christmas™ against David Silverman, the president of American Atheists. Aided by loyal foot soldier Todd Starnes, Hannity engaged Silverman in a battle of words over the atheist display in Times Square and whether he’s just trying to deliberately offend people.

    1. Anonymous1:20 PM

      Is this "Atheist" war on xmas 4 real or a Jihad on Muslims?
      Don't they call them "Atheists" too? I'm so sick of this bullshit? Fox news is BULLSHIT MOUNTAIN!
      can you imagine MEETING one of these idiots in PERSON and have them spew this crock at you?
      I think I would just LOLOLOLOL at them and tell them "Happy Holidays"!

  11. Boscoe5:56 AM

    Remember Hannity's "charitable" endeavors? The ones where he generated 10 million from his "Freedom Concerts" but less than 400k actually got to the children of fallen soldiers? Why does $a®ah™'s new grift remind me so much of Hannity?

    Must be because they are both soulless piles of human filth.

  12. Well, I looked at their site and was not impressed. There should be clear definitions of exactly what the terms mean so that you know exactly what you are buying when it comes to precious metals.

    Silver? Does that mean sterling silver? 100% silver? Gold relief? Please. A micro thin coating of gold on the high spots and the rest of the coin is made of...? The gold on these medallions is probably worth pennies.

    A donation will be made to Wounded Warriors? How much? Dollars? Pennies? Percent?

    They may be nice people, they may be talented metalsmiths and artists, but their business ethics seem to be, let's say, casual. Not surprising that they think Sleazy Sarah is worthy of being a face on their medallions.

      Nefer, I believe the details you're looking for are buried in the fine (.05pt) print on a 404 error page:

      "The medallions are fabricated using a top-secret, patent-applied-for lamination/high-tech micro deposition technology whereby thousands of layers of the essential proteins from the dessictated tears of shame, failure, anguish, fear, greed, incompetence and humiliation are fused together and polished to a greasy lustre that will be enjoyed by the angry addled amongst us for months to come before they are tucked away and forgotten in dusty attic storage trunks out of sheer embarrassment."

    ...Notice any difference between the 2009 Palin coin and the 2012 model, aside from the clever Tina Fey reference? Well, Sarah Palin from 2009 certainly would. At a November, 2009 speech in Wisconsin, Palin sounded the alarm about a sinister plot to move “In God We Trust” all the way over to the edge of our $1 coins. It turned out that Republicans were the ones who moved it, and that by the time Palin got around to noticing, Democrats had moved it back, but there’s more. As you can see, the 2009 Sarah Palin coin has rightly and Christianly positioned the words “In God We Trust” right in the middle of the coin, just above Palin’s shoulder. The 2012 coin? It is just gone! Why, Sarah Palin coin? Why have you forsaken us? The reverse side does feature the Pledge of Allegiance, which contains the words “one nation, under God,” but it is apparently a God we no longer trust.

    ...Also, too, we’re very fond of the “a donation” language, because it lets us know that we really have no idea how much of the price of this magnificent medallion actually rolls on over to the charity, but given Sarah Palin’s solid history of honesty in donating and oh god we cannot even finish typing that sentence even as a joke.

  16. Anonymous6:41 AM

    i just spoke to the mint and to the wounded warrior project -

    the wwp maintain they have received no monies from this corporation.

    the company told me they are not registered with any alaskan government org. but they claim they make many charitable contributions - but could not name a single org they contribute to.

    they are a fraud. they are violating the law. and they are stealing honest peoples money...

    just spoke with them again -spoke to the cfo - there is panic - real panic at this company - needless to say - there will be changes afoot....

    big changes indeed...

    1. Anonymous7:05 AM

      Wanna bet they are a shill corp set up BY THE PALINS?
      Didn't toad's show have something to do with the "Wounded warrior foundation"?
      and we know the palin's "What's in it for us" motto/creed!

    Do you get a whole coin or just 1/2 a coin when you order this

    1. Anonymous9:31 AM's probably gold foil with a bitter white candy center.

    Her teeth.


    I swear this is trolling and is meant to mock her. Who of her fans would think it is a good thing?

    I love dis. Jeebuz loves idolatry of your leaders too. Putting your face on a gold coin is not douchey. Nope, not even a little

    I'm surprised the reverse side of the Sarah Palin coin was not embossed with the picture of the Warrior Within statue (aka Palin vagina) that was in front of Wasilla High School.

  20. Anonymous6:54 AM

    The majority of the Sarah Palin coins were probably purchased by Sarah Palin.

  21. Anonymous6:58 AM

    Is this the wounded Warrior Project she's supposedly contributing to. Comb carefully, kids.

  22. Anonymous7:16 AM

    How about Sarah Palin sucking Glenn Rice's Johnson on one side of the coin and Bristol sucking Levi's Johnston on the other side?

    1. Anonymous8:06 AM

      The first part work, but Bristol has to be taking it up her ... a true heads tails coin.

    Geez, Gryphen, are you really THAT gullible???

    This is obviously another failed attempt at Screechy Wretch(tm) humour/snark by your sad little blog buddy Beldar Whatever Conehead! Seriously, dude, c'mon! Do you really think ANYONE in their right mind would buy a shitty "coin" like this, much less come up with the idea for reals?

    Oh.... I see.

    Never mind.

    The 2012 coin can't be the "rill dill," can it? The one with the motto: "We can see 2012 from our house"?!?

  26. Anonymous9:16 AM

    Damn! I zoomed in on the retard's coin and was floored when I seen her tremendous big deformed ears. Never in my life have I seen ears as big as Sarah Palin's ears except for Dumbo's ears.

  27. Anonymous9:25 AM

    Sarah Palin's 2012 coin said "WE CAN SEE 2012 FROM OUR HOUSE"

    That's right bitch, you can see 2012 from your house since your racist remarks and idiotic behavior lost the presidential campaign for the dipshit who picked a dumbass beauty pageant contestant to be his losing running mate.

    Hey Sarah what do you read? Ha Ha Ha

    There is a coin with Sarah Palin's name and image on it. I remember that Sarah Palin trademarked herself. So since Sarah Palin is not talking about trademark infringement, is Sarah receiving money from the coin company?

    1. Anonymous10:41 AM

      Well Sarah?

  29. Anonymous10:52 AM

    Sarah did you receive ANY compensation from the coin company for using your name and image?

    As someone commented on Wonkette, "the finest chocolate inside money can buy, pardon the foil."

    Anyone notice the actual price of gold and what these are selling for? Dayum, grifter queen, is there anything you WON'T do for money, Jesus lover??

    So the coin that has 1 oz of pure 24k gold for $400 is a lie?

  32. Anonymous1:40 PM

    In Canada, we have a $1 coin replacing the paper bill showing a loon on the tails side and affectionately nicknamed the loonie. Then came the $2 coin with a polar bear on the tail side and naturally nicknamed the toonie. All our coins depict the queen on the heads side. Immediately, the toonie was described by comics as our $2 coin having the queen on the front with a bear behind. Perhaps a similar respectful "coining" could be made of one of "Dear Sarah's"

    The Fox News contributor and former Alaska Governor says a copyright infringement lawsuit against her for use of an iconic photo of the U.S. flag being raised at Ground Zero on September 11 should be tossed out. “A New Jerseynewspaper has chosen New York as the forum to sue defendants located in distant states, based on conduct with no particular connection to this District besides the subject matter of the photograph — a consideration that is irrelevant for purposes of venue,” lawyers for Sarah Palin wrote yesterday (read it here) in a filing in NYC District Court. “Defendants therefore seek dismissal…on the ground of improper venue or, in the alternative, for transfer of this action to an appropriate forum,” the motion memo adds.

    LOL I"m sorry but that looks like either a Peggy Hill coin or Marge Simpson coin. Pretty cartoonish if you ask me. But then again we know, Sarah Palin plays the caricature of Sarah Palin.


Don't feed the trolls!
