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.

The Touchstone

Northwest Territorial Mint: Did You Know?A touchstone is a small tablet of dark stone such as fieldstone, slate or lydite, used for probing of precious metal alloys. It has a finely grained surface on which soft metals leave a visible trace. Because it aided in the identification of gold and silver, the touchstone revolutionized the concept of money. Use of the touchstone in Ancient Greece and Anatolia dates to circa 500 BC. The fourth century philosopher Theophrastus in the tract de lapidibus (On Stones) described the testing of gold by fire or by the touchstone.
