San Francisco's Old U.S. Mint has undergone many transformations since it was built in 1874.

It's been a foundry for gold coins, a fortress for a good chunk of the nation's gold supply, a federal office building and a museum.

The building on the corner of Mission and 5th streets is about to undergo a new transformation.

The California Historical Society is leading a project to restore the Old Mint into a cultural and learning center.

The public is invited to provide ideas and input at a community workshop on Monday, December 11.

The meeting will be held from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at San Francisco's Presidio Branch Library, located at 3150 Sacramento Street.
