Meet Peter's and Nero's Ancestors
Peter the Mint Eagle

From 1830 to 1836, my proud forefather Peter lived at the first Philadelphia Mint.  Legend has it that he used to fly around the city during the day.  Then, after getting his daily exercise, he'd return to the Mint before the building was locked up at night.  When he died, a taxidermist mounted him in an acrylic case.  Even today, you can still find Peter at his beloved Philadelphia Mint.

You can still see the first Peter at the Philadelphia Mint.
At the Philadelphia Mint, you can see the first Peter.
