Classy Tom Benson Doubloon

I drove to the Saints' headquarters in Metairie today to get my official Tom Benson 25th Anniversary Commemorative Medallion. As the coin says on the cover, it is minted of solid bronze. Heads is a head of none other than Tom Benson. It's a photograph glued to the front. The text states "Tom Benson (fleur de lis) 2009 (fleur de lis) 25th Anniversary (fleur de lis) 1984 (fleur de lis). It is very classy, but that goes without saying:

Tails has a picture of the Superdome and the newly acquired Benson towers with a giant fleur de lis alien spacecraft floating in the sky.

Did I mention that this doubloon is solid bronze (except for glued photo), and it is classy? I'm sure it is collectable, and me willing to share and all, I'd be willing to part with this classy doubloon for $5,000.
