147-140410 In the Treasure Corner - Early Coin Facts

Why was the first mint established in Philadelphia instead of Washington, D.C.? 

Why did we abandon the shillings-and-pounds money of our homeland? 

By federal law, the portrait of whom (or what) had to appear on all United States coins? 

Who was the first president to appear on a regularly-circulated United States coin? 

And what four coins authorized by the original Coinage Act of 1792 are no longer minted for circulation? 

Hear the answers to all these questions, and more, in this fast-moving three-minute program. 

By the way, this photo is of the very first United States Mint in Philadelphia, which operated from 1792 until 1833.
