US Mint West Point Coin
The West Point Mint is a U.S. Mint production and depository facility erected in 1937 near the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York, United States. The West Point Mint is one of the highest security mints in the nation. It’s both a storage and manufacturing facility. The mint at West Point is second only to the gold reserves held in secure storage at Fort Knox.
Of the four minting facilities in the United States, the West Point Mint is the nation’s newest facility. It was built in 1937 and established as a silver bullion depository in 1938. While it’s located close to the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York, the facility and the service academy are not related. Today, the mint only produces commemorative coins bearing a “W” mintmark and stores gold.
The US Mint Police requested us to design and manufacture a custom challenge coin for them. They wanted something classic and official, with just the insignias of US Mint Police and West Point Mint on both sides of the coin to be engraved and colored in detail. Using gold and blue as the main color scheme, we had to make sure that the finish would outline of the etched graphics and letterings.
