Northwest Territorial Mint: Insights & Ideas

Hot Topic: The Trade Show Coin

A few trade show regulars have found a new way to make an impression when greeting visitors to their booth. Instead of a business card and throw-away brochure, they offer a real custom coin made specifically for the show, with their contact particulars minted on the reverse. Those coins are kept as souvenirs and definitely do not get thrown away.

Northwest Territorial Mint: In The News

Shipwreck Coins

Northwest Territorial Mint: Did You Know?The Spanish ship, Nuestra Senora de Atocha, sank from a hurricane in 1622, carrying 265 passengers and valuable treasure that Spain desperately needed, to pay for the Thirty Years War. When the Atocha left the dock of Havana, Cuba, on September 4, it was six weeks behind schedule and entering hurricane season. A hurricane did engulf the ship, smashing it into coral reefs, killing 260 of its passengers, and taking down one and a half million pesos (400 million dollars today).

Some 350 years later, Mel Fisher, a life-long treasure hunter, found the Atocha and, over the course of a 16-year effort, brought the Atocha legend back to life.
