Current GOAL

My basic mission is to just travel and see the country, or countries. The secondary mission is to be photographed in front of each of the US Mints. Should I, by some chance, leave the country I would not mind being photographed in front of another countries mint.

    Seen a long time ago!

    Write note 5/2/2006 Sueffel posted a note for it   Visit Log

    It seems to be, that the bug was stolen from the cache. Cachers report that there is no bug anymore in the Cache.
    Sorry for that bad notice. (TB-Graveyard=GC72A8)

    Greetings Sueffel

    First of all, sorry to the owner for keeping this fine TB for more than 2 weeks. This is usually not my style...

    I picked up .999 Fine in Portugal, and it travelled with my to Germany, then on to Oslo (see previous log), then back to Germany and on to Stockholm the following weekend. I didn't find a suitable cache there, so it returned with me to my home town.

    Today I finally made it to the Hamburg Mint (Münze Hamburg), a rather special place indeed. While today's new mint won't win an architectural prize, the institution itself has quire some history. The first coins of the Hamburg Mint were produced in 834 (1172 years ago)!! Their website says "The Hamburg Mint (Hamburgische Münze) has been producing coinage since the 9th century and is thus the oldest coin-minting site in Germany. As one of the five state-owned mints, the Hamburg Mint now produces a proportion of all the Euro coins for the Federal Republic of Germany, as well as foreign currencies, special coins, collectors’ coins and medals." http://www.muenzehamburg.de/en/index.htm

    Watch out for German coins with the "J", indicating that it has been produced at Hamburg Mint.

    The Norwegian Mint (Det Norske Myntverket, formerly Den Kongelige Mynt) is not located in Oslo, as expected, but in Kongsberg http://www.dkm.no/language.asp?lid=2. So the TB is just visiting the Money Exchange cache and travel on with me.

    Here it is a photo of the Lisbon's Mint with the TB.

    There are not many in Portugal, so the TB is now going to Germany.

    We will take it to Lisbon and take a photo near a mint.
    It's not an US mint, but it's a Portuguese Mint.
