I had a busy day here at the Denver office : wrapping up the hand-over of my duties to new team members, cleaning out my desk and cubicle, and finally doing the rounds and bidding my project’s team members good-bye.
So when a little bit of time opened up, I thought ‘You cannot have worked in Denver for almost a year, and not make it to the Denver Mint .. let’s go!’. I didn’t have enough time for a tour, and one has to sign up for that weeks ahead of the actual day of the tour anyway – but I could go to the gift shop and ogle the coins and souvenirs on display. I did came away with some souvenir coins. There were $1,600 one-ounce gold coins for sale as well, but I steered clear of those!
