This coin was minted to recognize the hiring of both Tom Osborne as Athletic Director and new head football coach Bo Pelini. It recognizes the return to tradition that the hirings signified, and the new hope of restoring excellence to the Nebraska football program. A duplicate of this coin was tossed prior to all 2008 home football games. The coin is 2" in diameter and is minted out of solid brass in Lincoln, NE by Husker fans. It comes packaged in a clear, air tight collector's case.
