Minting Coins – then and now!

One of our Members shared these 2 Videos to enlighten us on just how much the Coin Minting Process has changed in the last few generations. The first video is from 1940 and gives an historical reference of coin making in the USA from its’ inception. The second video is from 2015 and shows the same Mint and the process of making Quarters today. You may be surprised at the difference!
