Philly to Denver: "Stop Making Lincolns!"

In 1922, the Philadelphia Mint didn't make any Lincoln Cents, and they told the folks in Denver to stop making them - even though they were needed. Since no Lincolns were being struck in San Francisco, the only 1922 Lincoln Cents made anywhere were struck in Denver. And, they stopped making them in March, so the mintage for that year was only a little more than half of a normal year's production. Since every Lincoln Cent collector needs one to complete their collection, we've secured some of these "mile high" treasures exclusively for you.

To meet the need for a United States Mint location in the heart of the West, the U.S. Government acquired the assay office and private mint of Clark, Gruber and Company for $25,000 in 1863. While a new assay office was immediately set up in its place, the new branch of the U.S. Mint wasn't in full operation until 1906. Initially responsible for minting $20 Double Eagles from Colorado gold, today the Denver Mint produces about 40 million coins a day -- a total of 8 billion coins a year.
