From Guinea Pig to Lightening Rod

Yesterday I felt like I went from being a Guinea Pig to a Lightening Rod. First I went to Stevens Point to get my first covid shot. That was my Guinea Pig feeling. Since I got there with about two hours to spare I went to a local antique mall. Looking around I realized that there were far more President Trump medals available than I ever imagined. Based on his looks, I would guess the young the college aged attendant who opened the case for me would not be a Trump fan. I guess I will never know since he never let on one way or another. In any event I bought this medal. It is silver plated and very well done! Beneath the portrait at the tip of the neck is the letter T. The only T that I am familiar with on coins is for the Tabora Mint in German East Africa during WWI and I know this medal was not minted there. Anyone know what the letter T on this medal stands for?

retiredkpr - medallions identical to the ones you posted are currently being advertised by CoinCraft in London.

Unfortunately their ad doesn't say where the medallions are minted.

Coins are almost never discreet in their intent. This medal is propaganda, everything is designed to be blatant.

I agree with ThatCoinDude, the T is definitely for Trump. These are just show pieces made for his supporters, usually they slap his name anywhere and everywhere possible. Also, these being a private production, mint marks are less common, and there is, I'd be willing to say, a zero percent chance the Tower Mint was producing these
