PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond the Mint’s control, the unveiling of Lumisonica, the interactive light and sound grand staircase installation by renowned international artist Vesna Petresin, has been postponed. The innovative, unprecedented nature of this project’s technologies—involving an international team of subcontractors—requires more time in order to present what will be a spectacular, unique, and immersive experience for our visitors and community. It will be completed later this fall. Thank you for your support and understanding.
