“There's nothing newly minted about the West Point coin facility — it’s been churning out popular American collectibles for 75 years.”




It was opened in 1938 as a silver repository, nothing else.

I don't think I've ever read a news story about something I was familiar with that didn't have some inaccuracies.


I love this line too:


The coins emerged with the familiar American bald eagle emblem indelibly etched upon them.


I could handle struck or stamped, but certainly not etched.
