Until 1699, appointment was usually for life. Its holder occasionally sat in the cabinet.

Mint (coin) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (370 words)
The origins of the Philadelphia Mint, which began operations in 1792 and first produced circulating coinage in 1793, are most often related within the political context of the time.
