Oh… My… GOD!!! This Osama bin Laden Is Dead commemorative coins from the… um, Historic Coin Mint (which is maybe an actual thing maybe)!!! For only $19.95?! Please tell me that they're made of genuine brass and then painted over in a thin sheet of 24 carat gold! They are?!?! There better not be a limited number of these, because I want an unlimited number of them!!!
Look, I don't wanna be too nitpicky here. I'm glad that one side of these coins features a picture of some Navy Seals and another has the World Trade Center. But can't there be a third side that shows Osama bin Laden bleeding out from his skull on his bedroom floor? But, like, in bas relief and all tasteful and shit.
I'm just saying, they're missing the Historic Coin Mint is really missing an opportunity make something special here.

It's been almost a decade now. I can't believe we're only now getting around to honoring these true American heroes…
In an act that many are calling long overdue, Congress passed legislation this week to honor those Americans who were first on the scene to profit from the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001.
The so-called 9/11 First Capitalizers Act, which passed by a wide margin in both the House and Senate, is the first measure to recognize the utter lack of sacrifice on the part of those men and women who did not hesitate to put their own personal agendas above all else when it mattered most…
The bill not only honors those who rushed to Ground Zero immediately to sell merchandise, participate in photo ops, or advance an ideological agenda, but also those who profited from afar by producing jingoistic songs and TV specials, or mentioning 9/11 in stump speeches as a way of scaring people into voting for them.
Among those Americans recognized were "United We Stand" T-shirt manufacturer Gary Tabano, country artists Toby Keith and Lee Greenwood, Halliburton CEO David Lesar, filmmaker Oliver Stone, former president George W. Bush, and 89 members of Congress itself.
