Philip Diehl was the director of the United States Mint from 1994-2000.
During his tenure, Diehl brought wholesale changes to the way the Mint operated, including the reforming of the commemorative coin program, and the streamlining of the mint’s production capabilities. The 50 State Quarters Program and Sacagawea dollar were both launched during his tenure.
As a private citizen, Diehl has sat on the boards of the Industry Council for Tangible Assets (ICTA), the Coalition for Equitable Regulation and Taxation, and the Gold and Silver Political Action Committee.
His position on precious metals “investing” is nuanced but he is in favor of it. In this interview, CoinWeek Editor Charles Morgan and Philip Diehl discuss gold investing sales pitches and the underlying reality beneath their most common arguments.
