On April 2, 2017, the U.S. Mint will celebrate the 225th anniversary of the 1792 Act of Congress that established the first U.S. Mint facility in Philadelphia. Today, the U.S. Mint continues its mission by producing legal tender as well as commemorative products and medals that memorialize important moments in U.S. history.
As we get ready to celebrate our anniversary, we look back on our rich history and remember some special moments.
