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.
(Here are photos of all three coins.)
