    You are quite welcome. It's been a while since I read this thread. I am not sure when I will make it back out that way but when I do, the mint will definitely be a stop. I hope the thread has inspired others to visit as well. I enjoyed it more than most museums I have visited and only wish I had more time on that day to look around.

    I didn't know Carson City minted cents too...

    Very nice thread! I enjoyed reading it (even if it is 6 years old).

    If you have time go over and visit Virginia City nearby. Stop in the Silver Queen saloon -- see the Silver Queen -- 3,261 silver dollars! My guess is she's about 18 - 20 ft tall.

    I can't wait until I move to Carson City. This will definitely be the first place to visit.

    Carson City is a great place. I've spent some time there, was there last month. On another trip wife and I spent 1/2 day at the museum and at the coin dealer across the street. Big collection of Morgans. Had lunch down the street at the Firkin & Fox, watched the World Cup and ate fried pickles. I keep talking to my wife about moving there too, at least for part of the year.

    It is a nice area. When I finish college I'm moving there pronto. I'm already in the process of purchasing estates there.

    Good thread. I'm definitely putting the CC mint on my to-do list. Thanks for all the pics.

    I visited the CC mint last summer... it was well worth it. My kids loved the walk through mine in the basement. The wax figures are really cool. Of course, I was glued to observing the coins on the other level.

    Nice post of the CC Mint. I've been there twice and enjoy it more each time I go.I love the descent into the mines that show you how it really was back then. (I'm sure it was worse than depicted). If you're in the Reno/Lake Tahoe area, it's a must see, for coin enthusiasts.
