DENVER MINT CELERATES 100TH BIRTHDAY

The Rocky Mountain News published an account of a celebration
at the U.S. Mint marking the Denver landmark's 100th year:

"The United States Mint at Denver commemorated 100 years of
service today at its historic facility at 320 West Colfax,
where more than 550 former and current employees gathered in
the building's Grand Hallway.

"Today, we pay tribute to our craft and to the artisans of
the coins that jingle in the pocket and purses of nearly
every American," said Tim Riley, plant manager of the agency.

During the event, a time capsule was presented with a set
of 2006 uncirculated coins minted in Denver and a scroll
signed by every current employee. The time capsule included
a separate scroll with the autographs of former employees
dating back to the late 1970s."
