A ceremony was held at the United States Mint in Denver, Colorado exhibiting the first public display of gold bars in more than 10 years.
The exhibit coincides with the 220th anniversary of the US Mint and the 150th anniversary of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.
David Croft, Denver Mint Manager, introduced Treasurer Rosie Rios who praised the Mint staff for making the event possible.
Three gold bars weighing 400 ounces each were unveiled with a market value of almost $2 million. These gold bars will now be part of the public tour route for visitors to the Mint.
A similar exhibit will be available at the BEP in Washington, D.C.
