The former U.S. President Donald Trump’s wife Melania Trump has launched a new NFT collection dubbed The 1776 Collection. The collection revolves around the country’s approaching Independence Day holiday and features popular landmarks in the country. The new collection comes roughly a year after Melania released the ‘Head of State’ collection that courted controversy with some arguing that Melania bought her own collection.

Home of the Brave

Melania has divided the collectibles into six editions that culminate into 3,000 artworks plus an additional bunch that has 500 collectibles. Each of the first six editions features 500 artworks with collectors of “all six pieces of artwork” earning a bonus in the additional edition named “Home of the Brave.”

According to the collection’s website, artworks in the six categories have started attracting collectors, with the bonus NFTs scheduled to be revealed on July 4. A report by Fox News disclosed that Melania intends to use a portion of the funds raised from the NFTs’ sale to fund programs dedicated to foster children.

Melania’s latest collection comes seven months after Trump launched his first collection known as Donald Trump Digital Trading Card NFTs priced at $99 which also promised collectors extra perks such as a gala dinner with the former U.S. president. 

Trump NFTs Sold Out

Although news of an NFT collection by Trump attracted fierce criticism from the community, they were sold out shortly after launch and the collection’s floor price increased 10x to over $990 within a few days. 

The collection’s price also surged months later after rumors spread that the U.S. government is considering arresting the former U.S. president for mishandling classified information among other allegations.

With Melania’s first collection attracting controversy, it’s to be seen how fast collectors will scoop up artworks in The 1776 Collection.
