The coins are FREE courtesy of the History of the Heartland organization. Historic Preservation Week is May 20-May 26. Locations will be announced on the History of the Heartland Facebook page. The coin features an image of the iconic Staley Pump House. This is the second of an annual series of limited-edition commemorative coins to be pressed for Historic Preservation Week.
