A Message From United States Mint Director David J. Ryder

As the global impacts of COVID-19 continue to evolve, my top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of the United States Mint workforce – the men and women who work hard to ensure you receive the highest-quality products.

As part of the Federal workforce we have and will continue to follow all guidance provided to the Federal Government, to include the information provided by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As we do this, the decisions I make will undoubtedly impact the on sale dates, availability, and delivery of some of our numismatic products, and you may also experience longer wait times when calling our customer service number. It is because of this that I ask for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.

I encourage you to use the United States Mint catalog site https://catalog.usmint.gov/ as your primary source of the most current information on product and service status.

Thank you for your patronage and continued dedication to the United States Mint. Please do all you can to be safe, stay healthy, and to keep others safe. We are all in this together, and we will get through it together.


David J. Ryder
Director, United States Mint

About the U.S. Mint

usmintThe United States Mint was created by Congress in 1792 and became part of the Department of the Treasury in 1873. It is the Nation’s sole manufacturer of legal tender coinage and is responsible for producing circulating coinage for the Nation to conduct its trade and commerce.

The U.S. Mint also produces numismatic products, including proof, uncirculated, and commemorative coins; Congressional Gold Medals; and silver and gold bullion coins. The Mint’s numismatic programs are self-sustaining and operate at no cost to taxpayers.

Since Congress created the United States Mint on April 2, 1792, the primary mission of the Mint is to produce an adequate volume of circulating coinage for the nation. As a self-funded agency, the United States Mint turns revenues beyond its operating expenses over to the General Fund of the Treasury. Other responsibilities include: Maintaining physical custody and protection of the Nation's $100 billion of U.S. gold and silver assets; Manufacturing and selling platinum, gold, and silver bullion coins; and Overseeing production facilities in Denver, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and West Point, as well as the U.S. Bullion Depository at Fort Knox, Kentucky.

  1. I would like to see some one ounce silver coins featuring the patches of the Military units,1st Division, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, ETC. I have been a customer for many years now keep up the great work. God bless and keep us safe.

  2. Please have someone work on the website for purchasing coins. I have tried many times to purchase limited-edition coins, and the site cannot handle the high volume of people trying to buy these coins at a certain time. I even had a limited-edition gold coin in my bag at checkout, and when I went to checkout, it kicked me out! It said I needed to refresh the page. I didn’t get any coins I wanted because the site can’t handle it! Very disappointed!!!
