Dick Johnson forwarded this article - the Denver Mint will be closed during the upcoming Democratic national Convention. Perhaps management is afraid that protesters will be successful in their attempt to levitate it and shake out the money. -EditorCoin-making at the Denver Mint will shut down and no tours will be offered during the week of the Democratic National Convention, but officials said it's for normal maintenance and not because of the convention.
Mint spokesman Greg Hernandez in Washington said the plant will get its annual physical inventory and workers will perform maintenance on machines.
The convention is August 25th through 28th. Last year's maintenance was performed July 23rd through 27th.
The Denver Mint is on Colfax Avenue, the designated route for protest marches, and is about two blocks from Civic Center park, the designated staging area for marches.
