Donation from National Collector's Mint denied
If you’ve been following this site for a while, you realize that I’m not a big fan of the National Collectors Mint. They use deceptive advertising and are trying to capitalize on a national tragedy. In fact, some believe that they’re outright lying because they’re unable to prove that the silver they use (in minuscule amounts) was actually from under the debris at Ground Zero.
I am pleased to hear that officials from the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation have rejected donations of more than $30,000 from a Westchester company that marketed 9⁄11 commemorative coins (the company, as you might have guessed, is none other than the National Collectors Mint).
