MECHANICSBURG, Pa., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Mint, LLC President Kevin Sacher is excited to announce the release of a new $1 trillion trial coin.  Available exclusively from American Mint, these high quality "Proof" coins are available in a platinum-layered edition, in extremely limited quantities.

Federal borrowing has officially reached the $16.394 trillion debt ceiling.  The U.S. will default on its debts... unless Congress acts now. U.S. law grants the U.S. Treasury permission to mint platinum bullion coins as it sees fit. With a single $1 trillion coin, the U.S. could effectively erase some of its debt and buy some time to work through some of the tough economic policy decisions we now face. 

Now, luxuriously plated in platinum, this exquisite "Proof" coin features a representation of what the $1 trillion trial coin might look like if Congress were to issue it to avoid the debt ceiling.

"We're excited to be able to make this exquisite coin available for our collectors," Sacher said.  "It looks so beautiful and important as it should, and is a great way to commemorate this challenging moment in history."
