American Income Life – Cha-Ching!
Making your list of destinations to visit in San Francisco during American Income Life Convention 2014 this summer? Interested in seeing some of the city’s most prestigious historical sites? We all like money, right? Then head to San Francisco’s Old Mint Building and learn all about it!
San Francisco’s Old Mint Building
The Old United States Mint, also known as the Granite Lady, was historically used to turn gold into coins as a way to back the nation’s currency. The building, which miraculously survived the infamous 1906 earthquake and fire, was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1961 for its importance as an example of classical revival architecture*.
The Old United States Mint served as a repository for a third of the nation’s gold reserves until 1937. It’s located at Fifth and Mission Street in downtown San Francisco, and is a popularly used space for corporate and social events, as well as photo shoots and film locations*.
The building is transforming to contain a museum full of information about its history for the public. The San Francisco Museum at the Mint will provide a learning environment bringing history and culture to life in a fun (and profitable) way*.
The popular Italian restaurant, 54 Mint, is located behind the Old Mint Building off of Fifth Street between Mission and Market Streets in the SoMa district. This is a great opportunity to explore a historical site then spend some time wining and dining with your fellow American Income Life Agents!
