Comments

The San Antonio Missions were among the largest concentrations of Spanish missions in North America, established in the 1700s, and helped create the foundation for the City of San Antonio, TX. The construction of aqueducts and irrigation canals (acequias) brought water to the missions sustaining farming and ranching. The missionsโ€™ toolmaking, carpentry, looming, spinning, and masonry also contributed to the communityโ€™s ability to be self-sustaining.

In 2019 for the great American coin hunt, the United States Mint made 2 million of each of the 5 quarter designs at Westpoint Mint with the โ€œWโ€ mint mark.
