NEW BOOK ON THE DENVER MINT - 100 YEARS OF GANGSTERS, GOLD AND GHOSTS

'The Denver Mint: 100 Years of Gangsters, Gold, and Ghosts' by Lisa Ray
Turner and Kimberly Field has recently been published by Mapletree
Publishing Company, Denver, CO.  From the book's web page:

"This is the most comprehensive book ever published about the Denver
Mint. It takes readers from the days when gold dust was legal tender
in the dusty frontier town of Denver to the present when the Mint is
a world-class facility that makes most of our coins. History buffs will
love the book’s historical highlights while casual readers will enjoy
seeing how the cultural events and trends influenced money and life at
the Mint.

"The book provides a unique, behind-the-scenes look at the Denver
Mint — entertaining stories of colorful characters, controversial coins,
and the creative artists behind the nation’s coinage. It covers
everything from workday life at the Mint to tales of gangsters and
dramatic gold transfers."

The 192-page illustrated softcover book is available from the
publisher for $18.95 postpaid.  For more information, see:
