The U.S. Mint has issues its first ever coin in a pink hue thanks to Reps. Carolyn Maloney, Pete Sessions and Sen. Heidi Heitkamp.

The lawmakers launched the Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin program on Thursday following their bill signed into law in 2016. The program features three coins: the five dollar gold, which has the pink hue, the silver dollar and the clad half dollar.
