Panama Canal Locks Manufacturers

Jim Nehez wanted coins to hand out to those involved in manufacturing the locks for the Panama Canal expansion project. The coin features a clean and simple design with just enough color to enhance the artwork. He distributed 150 coins, 20 of which were encapsulated and presented in a leatherette case.

After receiving his coins, Nehez emailed his sales rep, Russ Wilson, and had this to say: “I just wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how perfect our order turned out. Congratulations to you and the mint for producing truly an extraordinary keepsake. We have received nothing but raves and accolades from every recipient! Our heartfelt thanks to you for helping us to create a lifelong reminder of our accomplishment here.”

Cupronickel

Northwest Territorial Mint: Did You Know?Cupronickel is an alloy of copper, nickel and strengthening impurities, such as iron and manganese. Cupronickel does not corrode in seawater, because its electrode potential is adjusted to be neutral with regard to seawater. Because of this it is used for marine hardware, and sometimes for the propellers, crankshafts and hulls of premium tugboats, fishing boats and other working boats. The cupronickel alloy technology has been known by the Chinese since the 3rd century BC under the name 'White copper' (some weapons from the Warring States Period were in copper-nickel).
