Melania Trump, the former first lady of the United States, is set to captivate the digital art world once again with her latest offering of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). With Independence Day just around the corner, Melania has unveiled “The 1776 Collection“, a limited edition batch of 3,000 digital collectibles priced at $50 each.

Melania Trump follows in the footsteps of her husband, former President Donald Trump. The Trumps have already seen success in the non-fungible token (NFT) space, particularly with the “Trump Digital Trading Cards“ collection.
The initial release of these cartoonish NFTs generated an impressive trading volume of over 14,200 ETH (equivalent to $26.7 million) since late last year. Their second edition has also achieved notable success, accumulating approximately $2.7 million in trading volume.
However, Melania Trump’s involvement in the NFT space began in December 2021, preceding her husband’s successful NFT trading cards collection. Melania’s previous NFTs generated approximately $15,000 in trading volume.
While Melania’s previous NFT collections, including “The American Christmas Collection” and “The POTUS Trump NFT Collection,” have seen less fanfare, they are still available for purchase on USA Memorabilia, a leading NFT platform specializing in United States memorabilia.
Melania Trump Wants to Empower Children
Melania Trump’s latest NFT offering celebrates the upcoming Independence Day holiday. Dubbed “The 1776 Collection,” these Solana-based NFTs feature iconic American landmarks, such as the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, and the Liberty Bell.
Each digital collectible, accompanied by a patriotic-themed music track, is designed to represent a facet of Americana and pay tribute to the foundations of American ideals. The former first lady hopes to provide art enthusiasts and collectors with a glimpse into the nation’s storied past and the ideals that have shaped its identity.
In an exclusive interview with FOX News, Melania revealed that a portion of the proceeds from the sales will support Fostering the Future, an initiative under her Be Best program. Fostering the Future focuses on providing educational opportunities and scholarships for children in the foster care community, aiming to empower them and equip them with the necessary skills for a brighter future
“My focus would continue to be creating a safe and nurturing space for children to learn, grow and thrive,” she told FOX News. “If additional problems arise, I will take the time to study them and understand their root causes.”
Whether or not she returns to the role of first lady, Melania remains steadfast in her commitment to initiatives focused on the well-being and development of children, ensuring they have the support and resources necessary to flourish.
