PURDUE UNIVERSITY, Ind. (WLFI) - The year long celebration of Purdue's 150 Years of Giants Leaps is coming to an end.

A commemorative coin is making its debut to mark the end of the celebration. The specifically designed coins feature an original design.

The coin will be used during the coin-flip at the start of tomorrow's homecoming game.

Tom Schott of Purdue Athletics said the coin represents one last hoorah for the University's 150 years.

“One more chance to have the national stage, hear one more time about the 150th anniversary and the great academics and athletics that happen at Purdue.” Schott said.

Only 1000 of the limited edition coins have been made.
