New Director at San Francisco Mint
Ed Moy is the first Asian American to be a director of a US Mint, and he couldn’t be happier. He was inspired by the shiny coins he encountered as a cashier at his family’s Wisconsin restaurant and began collecting them and never stopped.
Isn't this country amazing. I'm the son of Chinese immigrants who ran a restaurant in the Midwest. Now I oversee the government agency that made those coins we earned and that fascinated me. Where else but in America can a kid like me, working in his parent's restaurant, get the opportunity to one day run a critical government agency?
