Singapore Launches 'World Peace' Medallion To Mark Trump-Kim Summit
Singapore on Tuesday unveiled a commemorative medallion ahead of next week’s summit between the U.S. and North Korean leaders in the wealthy city-state, carrying the inscription ‘World Peace’ in large letters on one side.
The words on the medallion, featured on the online shop of the Singapore Mint, are accompanied by the dove and olive branch motif, a biblical symbol of peace, as well as a rose and a magnolia, the national flowers of the two countries.
The other side of the souvenir, which costs more than $1,000 for the version in gold, depicts two hands clasped in handshake in front of both nations’ flags and the June 12 event date.
The meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un will be the first ever between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader. After a war of words that lasted months, it aims to start a discussion on ending the North’s nuclear weapons program in return for diplomatic and economic incentives.
