@iamtotallyrich No, you should be able to establish an international account. Call 1-800-USA-Mint if you're having an account problem.
@benjaminstrong You're very welcome. I'm sure your children would love to see the presses in action at the Philadelphia tour!
@Mrs_LMR Hope you enjoy the tour! Let us know if you have any suggestions.

BEP Fact: In 1957, the first high-speed rotary press was capable of printing 2,400 sheets an hour.
