The Old U.S. Mint building in San Francisco will open its doors for four days only in 2010 for the “Old SF Mint Coin Show,” sponsored by Griffin Coin Company, April 23-24 and Sept. 17-18.
More than 30 coin and currency dealers will be in attendance to showcase U.S. and world coins and paper money. The show will also offer complimentary tours of the building three times each day, as well as drawings and door prizes.
