The Mint – A Birth of a Giant
 
 

The 1950s came alive with color-neon color. Las Vegas mushroomed into the most razzle-dazzle city in the world. The term “spectacular sign” took on new meaning. In 1959 a massive sign was designed, manufactured and installed for The Mint Hotel and Casino. It was acknowledged as the electrical engineering classic sign of its time. This majestic curved and arched form towered 96’ above “Glitter Gulch” as Las Vegas’ Fremont Street came to be called.
