The Story:

Golf Coins Plus, LLC, located just east of Seattle in Issaquah, Washington, has offered a full range of ready-made and custom golf-themed products to clients throughout the world since the company was founded in 1999. Founder and partner John Smith started the business around the idea that golf has become the sport of choice for a large segment of the business world. Based on experience, Smith knew that an increasing amount of business is being conducted on fairways, greens, and in clubhouses after a round of golf. To capitalize on this trend, he came up with an idea for a game that could easily be integrated into the game being played on the golf course.

The game would create instant conversation among players and facilitate "soft-selling" of prospects. Smith knew that coins, engraved with various symbols relating to course hazards (sand traps, etc.) were the perfect game pieces. So he sought out a company that specialized in creating custom coins. His search led him to Northwest Territorial Mint.

Northwest Territorial Mint's management and creative teams quickly realized the potential behind Smith's idea. The company's artists immediately began drafting sketches for the game piece coins and, within a matter of weeks, Smith's concept had been transformed into a reality. Today, Golf Coins Plus, LLC sells its unique Golf Coins game to customers around the world.

Northwest Territorial Mint: In The News

The Tin Star

Northwest Territorial Mint: Did You Know?As the cattle industry and mining expanded into the American West, so too did the number of people on the frontier. A means of marking the local Peace Officer soon became necessary. Lack of local badge-makers meant such lawmen had to make their badges from materials at hand. The tin star evolved as a star cutout from the top or bottom of a tin can. Another popular method of making a badge was to use a coin and cut out a star from the center. The Texas Rangers cut a star shape from a coin: the 1800s Mexican Ocho Reales (pieces of eight). In 1962 the Rangers resumed this practice using the 1940s Mexican Cinco Peso coins.
