Brady, not exactly new to making money, nevertheless was the first to "strike gold" when he stepped up to one of the seven-ton presses turning out coins commemorating the 200th anniversary of Congress and pushed the button to produce the first coin--a $5 gold piece featuring the Capitol dome. Coins produced during the ceremonial minting are expected to sell for a total of $22 million, to be used to help restore the Capitol.
