Has anyone seen one of the one-ounce rounds marketed for the Eclipse??

I was curious to know if a coin or medal had ever been issued to commemorate an eclipse such the one scheduled to occur on April 8th of this year, a mere 17 days away. I couldn't find anything but did find some one-ounce rounds marketed by various entities. The one pictured here is by some organization in Texas.

As it happens on April 8th I am fortunate to live approximately 10 miles SE of the center of totality, so it should be pretty cool. I was in the path of an eclipse in 1978 but this will be intense because it happens mid-day. Enjoy.

Maywood.

    It doesn't look like Dan Carr is going to issue one for this year's eclipse like he did in 2017. My Carr issue made the trip to central Nebraska with me in 2017.

    Cool medal. I live in the center of totality, but unfortunately there is only about a 30% chance we'll see the sun on April 8th.
