Why purchase this First Day of Issue Breast Cancer Awareness Pink Gold Commemorative coin?

The U.S. Mint's first foray into the production of colored gold coinage is a symbolic gesture to raise awareness of breast cancer. With pink being the universally recognized color for the cause, this 2018 commemorative coin is struck from pink gold at the West Point Mint. Each coin of the 50,000 limited mintage includes a surcharge of $35 which will directly benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Designs Symbolizing Hope Created by Emily Damstra

Two women are depicted on the obverse, with a butterfly and ribbon of hope floating beyond. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "2018," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "W."

Featured on the reverse is an incredibly detailed tiger swallowtail butterfly, a recognized symbol of hope. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "BREAST CANCER AWARENESS," "FIVE DOLLARS" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
