Federal Reserve Bank in Dallas Banthrico Coin Bank Souvenir Building

This difficult-to-find coin bank is a replica of the "old" Federal Reserve Bank made by Banthrico. Text on the base of the bank reads, “Federal Reserve Bank in Dallas 1921.” Constructed in 1921, the real building is located at 400 South Akard Street, in downtown Dallas, Texas. Built in the Beaux-arts style, with large limestone structure with massive carved eagles, it is a City of Dallas Designated Landmark structure. A new Federal Reserve Bank building was built in 1992 and the old building was purchased by Digital Realty Trust in 2012 and currently operates as a data center and is now known as “The Databank Building.”

I collect 3D metal souvenir building replica of architecture from around the world. If you have any to sell or trade, contact me via my email address in the “complete profile” link at the top right of this blog.
