San Francisco Old Mint Vaults

Scott Griffin puts on a first class show at the Old Mint Coin Show in San Francisco. I've been in the building before but it never gets old. The architecture is amazing! The banquet honoring local numismatists for their contributions was a very nice event.



If you ever are able to go to the Old Mint Coin Show in San Francisco, you could get to visit the vaults in the basement. The attached historical photo of  the vault gives you an idea; coin impressions can be seen on the inside steel of the vault made by the weight of the bags of coins. There are a number of interesting exhibits in the building, one of the 1915 PPIE -- photos of some of the so called dollars in the exhibit.
