Old United States Mint

The Old Mint (1869), San Francisco’s second, is California’s only such Federal Greek Revival structure. Due to unsurpassed productivity, it became a sub-treasury in 1874. Intact after the 1906 disaster, it served as a clearinghouse-bank, thus aiding in the city’s reconstruction. Closed in 1937, it was restored in 1972-1976 by Mint Director Mary Brooks

California Registered Historical Landmark No. 875

Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with the San Francisco Landmarks Preservation Advisory Board, January 28, 1977.

The Old United States Mint is also National Landmark 66000231 and San Francisco Landmark 236.
