Not sure what you are stating Scubaredneck. There were many foreign coins made by the various mints starting from 1874 to present. (Including the 1940s.) The coins in question were prior to 1874 (the year the law was written.)
I didn't know making foreign coins was such a wide practice. Why do you think that was Mhonzell? Purely economic or was there more behind that?
The Info on Phen24 here is good.

It has an economic basis for the requesting country in that they get high quality coinage or bills without the cost of infrastructure. Many countries do this.

For instance, I routinely purchase coinage from Belarus, but their coinage is produced in either Poland or Kazakhstan.
