Custom Mississippi State Mint Tins

Guess what I found the other day at Walgreen’s? These! They’re custom state mint tins.

As the name suggests, they are customized with individual names and are designed to look like car license plates.  I actually found the one with my name, even though there isn’t a close up here.  You’ll see it.  It’s in the third row from the bottom.


I have no idea why I would need to buy one of these, except of course to use the tin after the mints were all gone.  I suppose they would be collectibles or collector’s items.  Other than that, I have no idea.

Have you bought one of these before? What did you use the tin for after the mints disappeared? I would like to know.
