Help Us Feel All Grifty This Christmas With This Gorgeous Sarah Palin Gold Coin


If you know us at all, you know what big fans we are of Sarah Palin. Her folksiness speaks to us. She’s just so down home, which is what we love in a Fox News personality/ex-politician/scam artist. You also likely know that we are really really big believers in the gold standard because of our deep love for Ron Paul and our unexplained yet rabid dislike of the Federal Reserve. That’s why this 24-karat one ounce gold Sarah Palin coin is so high on our Christmas list.

This 1 oz. gold medallion honors Alaska’s Sarah Palin. As Alaska’s first woman Governor, she had a reputation of being against “business as usual”. She was thrust into the national spotlight when she was chosen to be John McCain’s vice presidential running mate. A donation from the sale of these medallions will be made to Wounded Warrior Project, helping seriously injured service members. The price for this 1 oz. pure gold medallion is $400.00 over the market price of gold, please call for quote. Order today before gold rises any further.

Rebecca has pointed out that these are such a bargain at this price that she’d like a ten-pack, which seems totally reasonable. Also, too, we’re very fond of the “a donation” language, because it lets us know that we really have no idea how much of the price of this magnificent medallion actually rolls on over to the charity, but given Sarah Palin’s solid history of honesty in donating and oh god we cannot even finish typing that sentence even as a joke.

Gold is just probably going to go up and up forever and ever just like this ad said and because that is how markets work so you better buy us all these coins ASAP so we can be rich rich rich.

    Granted, the coin doesn’t look all that great but I hear the chocolate inside is fairly edible.

    • Vecchiojohn

      Probably. Like Jews the world over, Palin puts out a menorah during the twelve days of Christmas.

  • As I type this, the Alaska Mint is asking $2400 for the coin, and the spot price for gold is $1225.60/oz. That is not $400 over the price of the gold; it is $1174.40 over the price of the gold.This proves math is a liberal conspiracy.

    • Vecchiojohn

      So that’ll be about $1174 for Palin and the other people putting on this scam and $.40 for the wounded warriors. Who needs socialized medicine for the military?

    • He_Who_Abides

      I’d be able to respect them if they had the honor to just wave a fucking gun in people’s faces. At least then they’d be taking a risk. On the other hand, it’s a transparent scam that literally has Sarah Palin’s face on it. Announcing the con in advance partially atones for the crime.

    Is it feasible to projectile scream?

    Based on who’s on the front, they’re probably hollow.

    Um, gold has dropped from $1700 to $1300 during 2013. So, lies.

      It wouldn’t be Sarah Palin if it wasn’t bullshit.

      • tinker12

        And it wouldn’t be $arah Palin if she didn’t get a payday.

  • Mahousu

    Is that Russia I see on the far edge of that coin?

    • Vecchiojohn

      Yes. Yes it is.

      That spurt? That’s Rich Lowry.

  • ez

    Who wants to soil their laptop by contacting the company, ‘splaining they need to do year end Tax avoidance and inquire how much of the price will be tax deductible (the ‘wounded warrior donation’)?

  • BMW

    Wait…did Palin actually ENDORSE this non-sense? That’s low, even for her.

  • Dylan Black

    This seems disgusting even by her incredibly low standards, to involve a good charity like Wounded Warriors in her grift pitch.

  • Elaine Kurpiel

    I was so hoping that, in the last sentence, you were going to laugh and say the article was “borrowed” from the Onion. If true, that money is going nowhere except to her next botox treatment and breast enhancement. She is ugly inside and outside.

  • wangamuffin

    Would you be willing to pay more if you knew they were made from the fillings pulled from the teeth of exhumed Alaskans? You know, recycling and all.

  • Farb

    Sarah Palin is one of the few people outside the K-Street mob to have turned gaming the political system into a serious business, to great personal advantage.

  • Axomamma

    Is the rocket ship on the coin’s backside the artist’s impression of Palin making off with the loot or a subtle message for the rest of us to run away as fast as we can?

  • AncienReggie

    I’m pretty sure that’s actually Tina Fey pictured on the coin.

  • Antonin Dvorak

    Can she see the Franklin Mint from her house?

  • kfreed

    You DO realize who’ll be purchasing these? Listen, the more money they flush down the toilet, the less they’ll have to donate to the cause of making our lives miserable.#SilverLining
