2012 American Silver Eagle San Francisco Two Coin Set Scheduled

The United States Mint has provided the release date for a two coin set which will be issued to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the San Francisco Mint at its current location. This set will contain two special American Silver Eagles.

The first San Francisco Mint opened in 1854 in response to the needs created by the California Gold Rush. By the end of the first year of operations, it had produced more than $4 million in gold pieces. In 1874, the Mint was moved to a larger facility with walls of stone. This came to be known as the "Granite Lady" and survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire. The San Francisco Mint moved to a more modern facility in 1937............
