The world did not end on Oct 21 but Doomsday Coins is cashing in on it
Doomsday Coins announces the release of its first coin, commemorating the numerous ends of the world predicted by radio evangelist Harold Camping. Reverend Camping predicted the end of the world in 1988, 1994 and twice in 2011. His first predicted date in May 2011 passed without event but the world will now end instead on October 21st, 2011 according to Camping. Get your Doomsday Coin before it's too late!
This is the first item I've seen commemorating the (predicted) end of the world. Have there been others? Great topic for a satirical medal.
