PHILADELPHIA – On May 6, 2004, the United States Mint at Philadelphia received the “Excellence in Government” awards, presented by the Federal Executive Board (FEB). The FEB, which was established to improve coordination among Federal activities and programs outside Washington, recognizes through its annual awards ceremony the accomplishments of the Federal public servants in the Greater Philadelphia area. Those employees are honored for their exceptional performance before an audience of all Federal agencies and military commands in Philadelphia.
