1. Marshals coins making money
As of Feb. 6, the U.S. Mint's U.S. Marshals Service 225th
Anniversary commemorative coins have brought in $1.45 million for the
planned U.S. Marshals Museum in Fort Smith, Ark., which is to receive
the proceeds from surcharges (if the Mint's costs of producing all the
coins are covered) on each of the gold, silver and copper-clad coins,
according to the Southwest Times Record
in Fort Smith.
According to an earlier report, the museum's
board is banking on $4 million to $5 million from the sale of the coins.
