Pink Coin Will Benefit Breast Cancer Research

This newly minted $5 coin from the U.S. Mint is a bit different than most coins we see. It's the first pink coin they've ever produced. The coin is meant to raise funds for breast cancer research, and it's off to a good start. The coin was released to the public on Thursday, March 15th, and collector's have already bought enough of the coins to raise $4 million for breast cancer research.

In case you're interested in buying one, they're not cheap. The coin pictured is available for a whopping $421 on the US Mint's website. And if you tried to make change with it, you'd get... $5. So the coin is not for everyone. But hardcore coin collectors who might want something as unique as a pink coin, may want to check it out.
