Dick Johnson forwarded this note about a U.S. cable television show featuring the U.S. Mint. -EditorA segment on Discovery Channel's program "Factory Made" Thursday evening (June 9, 2008) explored the Philadelphia Mint. It showed engraver Don Everhart at work on a coin model and several processes in striking coins.
The filming was excellent, good quality. However, the commentary left something to be desired. Its breezy voiceover was full of bromides by someone who had little knowledge of what was actually being done. It was followed by segments on washing machines and fishing rods.
