The big traditional Greek Revival-style Old Mint in San Francisco kept one-third of the nation’s bullion.
This month, those hallowed halls, where more than $ 50 million in cash were actually produced annually, to display treasures of a different sort — a show and seminar on the Bay Area’s historic food past.
