Photos from Today at the Carson City Mint Building and Minting of the new Mark Twain Medalilion
The Medallion being minted today is new one and it honors "Native Son" Samuel Clemens a/k/a Mark Twain who adopted that pen name when he wrote for a Carson City Newspaper. Coincidentally a mural of Mark Twain was just completed this past week on the side wall of the Nevada State Museum which includes the original Carson City Mint Building.
The new Mark Twain Medallion was just issued in conjunction with The Inaugural Mark Twain Days Festival in Carson City which was just held last week. Next Saturday will be the last Saturday for minting the Mark Twain Medallion.
