Pink Coins for Breast Cancer Research

posted by The Rahny Taylor Morning Show - 

The U.S. Mint released its first ever PINK coin last Thursday to help benefit breast cancer research.  And it looks like their plan is working . . .

They're expecting it to raise $8 million, with zero cost to taxpayers.  And it ended up pulling in $4 million on its FIRST DAY.

There are three different versions of the coins . . . a pink $5 coin, a silver one-dollar coin, and a silver 50-cent piece.  But they're collector's items, so they're selling for a lot more than face value.

The pink $5 coin costs over 400 bucks.  The $1 coin is about $50.  And the half dollar is about $30.
