West Point Mint – West Point NY

Description

Originally known as the West Point Bullion Depository, this facility was completed in 1937 with Treasury Department funds.

“Prior to its remodel in 2005 that added a second-story, the mint was a 170-by-256-foot one-story reinforced concrete structure with a flat roof. The walls are mostly featureless with some recessed-arches at the entryways. There are four turrets at the corners actively used in the building’s security. It is on a four-acre  parcel of land near the northern facilities of the United States Military Academy, with parking lots on either side. The interior contains minting presses and bullion compartments.” (Wikipedia)
