Good guess who???, but it was not Hawaii. The one in question operated from 1920-'22 & '25-'41.

That would have been my guess too, but the question does say colony, so I would probably go for Puerto Rico or Cuba.

It was not Puerto Rico or Cuba either. Interestingly though, both of you are on the right track in some respects.

Ah, What about the Philippines then?
It works especially because of the dates you listed.

What about the Philippines indeed. You nailed it who???! The only United States Mint located outside the continental United States was indeed located in Manila in the Philippines (and contained the mint mark "M" or no mint mark at all)! The purpose of the mint was of course to produce coinage for the colony. Great job who???!

The Purple Heart is awarded to United States servicemen and women for "Being wounded or killed in any action against an enemy of the United States or as a result of an act of any such enemy or opposing armed forces." Who's profile appears on the front of the medal?

Here is your question for today:

In an attempt to control their own work, what film studio did Charlie Chaplin, D.W. Griffith, Douglas Fairbanks, and Mary Pickford establish in 1919?
