Year 1976-1977.

America’s Bicentennial (200th Year Birthday of our Nation) celebration.

US mint launched a Bicentennial set of half and dollar coins.

Yours truly found a way of making something valuable out of the coins.

Created a “Gold Plated” key chain.

ROI was awesome. almost 200 % to 300%  returns!

Sales were outstanding. Could not keep up with the demands.

But the rest, well my friends and the ones who listened to some of my lectures and speeches know the details.

I won’t mention it here.

Here are pictures of the sets:
