A Russian manufacturing company has minted a $10,000 coin to commemorate the inauguration of Donald Trump as president.

The coin was manufactured by Art Grani and features the face of Trump on one side, with the Statue of Liberty and the words “In Trump we trust” on the other.

“The inauguration of Donald Trump will be a special event in the history of the world, that’s why we have done a collection,” Art Grani Sales Manager Kristina Glinina told CNN.

Despite the steep price of the coin, the company expects the limited edition to sell quickly. Just 45 coins were made: 25 made of silver, five of gold and 15 made of silver and gold.

A similar collection with the face of Russian President Vladimir Putin were created after Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014.

“We see our mission as immortalizing in metal the bright events of history and modernity, not only in our country but of the whole world,” Glinina told CNN.
