Coin making and the early U.S. Mint talk
Lincolnville — Brad Hennemuth will present a program on coin making and the early U.S. Mint Wednesday, March 5, at 7 p.m. at the Lincolnville Community Library.
Hennemuth will talk about how coins were made for centuries and the early years of the U.S. Mint, which was created by Congress in 1792 in Philadelphia. He will use his own special collection of half-dollars, all dated 1834, to show what people can learn from them about coin making at the U.S. Mint. Audience members are invited to bring one or two U.S. or foreign coins they would like to know more about.
Hennemuth lives in Lincolnville and has been a numismatist, or coin collector, for more than 30 years.
The library is located at 208 Main St. in Lincolnville Center. For more information, call 763-4343.
