|What makes it historical?
||Opening its doors in 1792, the Philadelphia mint was the first federal building constructed under the new US Constitution! At opening, the first American pennies, dimes, and dollars (nickels and quarters would come later) rolled into the streets of Philadelphia and beyond!
The building has been through four incarnations between 1792 and 1969 and is totay the world’s largest mint! In addition to the 1 million circulating coins it can produce every half hour, this mint also produces collectable and commemorative coins, as well as Congressional award medals! You’ll know your coin was minted here if it has a tiny “P” on it!
