JOHN MERCANTI INTERVIEWED BY FORBES MAGAZINE

Although the article doesn't seem to be available online (at least
not yet), there is a short profile of John Mercanti of the U.S. Mint
in the December 25, 2006 issue of the Fortune Investor's Guide 2007
(p152).  It includes a great photo of the prolific sculptor-engraver
at a work station in the Mint.

"I've been working here since 1974.  At that time I was an illustrator
but had never sculpted.  Since then I've designed 35 medals and 43
coins.  We are all classically trained, and we demand a lot [of ourselves]
because the Mint is known for its beautiful coins... The best part of
my job is seeing the finished product - holding the coin in my hand.
It's satisfying to see them all over the country."
