The mint is made to look like a treasure chest. It has a padlock and a giant replica of a penny on the front.
How quarters are madeEdit
At the mint, quarters are made by punching out blank discs from a metal sheet. They then move onto the engraving section of the line where a sharp point engraves the typical markings on them. Then they are ready for use.
Old money is shredded in an industrial shredder, then the fragments are used to make new, up to date money ready for use.
