What does the secret sevrice have to do with the US mint?
Discuss why overhead costing methods using plant-wide overhead rate or departmental overhead rates are no longer adequate for costing products and sevrices in other companies?
ABC Costing . With advancing technology and intense competitions, companies will strive to provide wider varieties of goods and services. Companies will thus produce both s…imple and complex products. Complex products tend to consume more non-unit level activities. Examples of non-unit level activities are setups, inspections and equipment maintenance, etc.. When there is a large proportion of non-unit level activities, plant-wide overhead rate and departmental overhead rates will result in inaccurate costing. This is because the two traditional methods use unit-level cost driver that cannot capture non-unit level activities with precision. An example of unit-level cost driver is machine hours, since every product requires machine time.. Usually complex products are produced in lower volume than simple products. Since the traditional costing methods use a unit-level cost driver, simple products will have higher overhead costs than the complex products. The products will thus be priced higher. The complex products, which use more non-unit level activities are priced lower.. Logically, complex products are more expensive than simpler products because of their more complicated production processes. These production processes involve more non unit-level activities.. The inaccurate costing leads to inaccurate prices of products, i.e. overpricing the simpler products and underpricing the complex products. The overpriced products might lead the firm to shut down its production unit due to low demand. Similarly, the underpriced complex products will have unexceptionally higher demand. This will undermine the true profits made by the firm. Because although higher demands lead to higher sales, the revenue that the firm collects are, in fact, less than what it supposed to get, if proper costing method is used, e.g. ABC Costing. Companies will incur losses instead because of the high expenses incurred that are not captured in producing the complex products.. Hence, the plant-wide rate and departmental rates are no longer adequate to use for costing products. Activity based costing refers to the methodology that identifiesactivities in a given organization and assigning each activity agiven cost.

They're actually called mint marks rather than "symbols". There have been 8 different mint marks over the years. Four mints are currently in operation: P = Philadelphia …Mint D = Denver Mint (1906-present) S = San Francisco Mint W = West Point Mint. In the past, there were: CC = Carson City Mint C = Charlotte Mint D = Dahlonega Mint (1838-61) O = New Orleans Mint Most coins of the Philadelphia Mint earlier than 1980 are unmarked. Currently the Lincoln cent is the only coin that does not show a "P" when struck at the Philadelphia mint. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mint_mark
Most recipes recommend using fresh spearmint for a mint julep,however it really depends on the drinker's taste for mint. Astronger mint flavor would require peppermint or choc…olate mint.Milder flavors would go more with apple mint or one of the otherslike pineapple mint. However I would NOT recommend using lemon mintunless you like the smell of citronella.

The United States Mint in Philadelphia is located in Independence National Historical Park, a few blocks away from Independence Hall (where the Declaration of Independence was… written and signed), The Liberty Bell, Benjamin Franklin's house, the First U.S. Post Office, and the Betsy Ross house. The Mint is located at the intersection of 5th and Vine, in the neighborhood known as 'Olde City'. They do give tours of the mint, although I do not know off-hand the schedule of the tours.

The current US mint marks are: P for Philadelphia D for Denver S for San Francisco (for proof coins only) W for West Point (for commemoratives and gold only) Until… recently most coins from Philadelphia did not have a mintmark so you may find many older coins lacking mint marks. Dates for the P mint mark are: > 1942-45 : "war nickels" > 1979-present : dollars > 1980-present : nickels, quarters, dimes, halves Philadelphia cents do not have a mint mark, even after 1980. Mint Marks on Older Coins S for San Francisco on circulating coins 1854-1955, also some nickels and cents 1968-74 C for Charlotte, NC 1838-1861 CC for Carson City, NV 1870-1893 D for Dahlonega, GA 1838-1861 O for New Orleans, LA 1838-1861 and 1879-1909

Philadelphia, because it was the first mint they never really needed a mint mark to differentiate themselves from any other mint, so when the other mints were built, they just… kept it the same.
Most countries have what is referred to as its national mint. For example, the United States Mint is the national mint of the US, the Royal Canadian Mint is the national mint …of Canada, and the Royal Mint is the national mint of the UK. However, in the United States the "national mint" is officially called The US Mint and is always referred to by that name. Several private companies have tried to play off possible confusion by putting the word "National" in their names, but they have no connection whatsoever to the US Mint. It's similar to the way a single government-run airline will carry the country's name in recognition of its status as the "flag carrier", while in the US where there is no official national airline, companies are free to name themselves American Airlines and US Airways even though they have no direct relation to the government.
If you mean the first coin made by the first US Mint it was the 1793 Half Cents issued in July of that year.
