The United States Mint is holding a one-day Numismatic Forum on Thursday, Oct. 13, 2016, in Philadelphia, Pa.

The purpose of this meeting is to gather individual members of stakeholder organizations to share perspectives on the past, present, and future of the numismatic hobby. In anticipation of the Mint’s 225th anniversary in 2017, the Forum will discuss the future of the Mint and the numismatic environment as a whole.

“It seems only appropriate that, while we as a bureau are celebrating our history, the Mint is also looking for ways to improve the way we engage our customers and invigorate our relevance into the future,” said United States Mint Principal Deputy Director Rhett Jeppson.

Those interested in attending should submit requests to:

For those unable to attend or who do not receive an invitation, any formal presentations made by the Mint during the forum will be made available online as soon as practicable after the event.

About the United States 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.

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.
