How close do you ever live to a mint?

I *used to* live in Russia and I was dumb enough not to figure out where the mints could be, or rather didn't bother to look for them as I realized Russia is not a place where it is "foreigner" friendly.

 

Little did I know that I lived 2 mins away from it if I used a trambus... :ninja:

 

I was too idiot not to take a photo of it... ;)

 

Afterall... it did look very "unfriendly"...

I live by NYC, closest mint is in Philly but the Federal Reserve has a large bank in NYC.

 

That's strange. I live in NYC area as well and the closest mint for me is West Point. :ninja:

When I lived in Jersey City, the closest mint was in Philadelphia (West Point was still a bullion depository then). I have been to the NY Fed though and even toured the vault and saw the piles of gold down there buried in the bedrock. Pretty interesting tour.

Toronto might be closest to you. There's a mint there, I think.

about two miles from the working san francisco mint (behind the social safeway), and two and a half miles from the old san francisco mint on 5th street. been to the old mint a few times when it was open to the public, never been to the new mint (it's not open for tours--the last time it was open for tours was a one-day only thing that was announced with a teeny tiny announcement in the paper).

That's funny.  The closest for you is in the US and the closest for me is in Canada.  :ninja:

 

;)

 

I've confirmed the distances:
