About the United States Mint

usmintThe US 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 United States 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. In 13 hours after the American eagle went on sale they were out!! I seen where you can purchase from secondary market for $103 only 13 hrs after!!! What a big slap in the face for the small regular person! Very disappointed in the mint. No wonder collecting just for the joy in it is gone. You cannot compete

  2. I agree w/ Tim. In fact, I am a regular collector and I signed up for the yearly enrollment. But the US Mint did not honor my enrollment for this year (2021). I wondered why I did not get an automatic notification on Feb 11, and I was very disappointed when I logged into my account only to find out that my automatic enrollment was disabled. And the item was sold out. It is so unfair, and I am rethinking whether or not I should continue my collection thru the US Mint, especially with the Mint’s terrible service track records as of late. Yes, I am talking about the 75th anniversary coins (last year) as well as many other items that seem to be catered to the big businesses. What happened to the small/individual collectors?

  3. I agree with Tim and DN, I didn’t even try for the 75th anniversary Eagles. It is not right, the Mint seems to not care about their loyal users. I have complained but to no avail. Maybe we should all write a letter to the head of the Mint. I think Iwill.

  4. I was able to purchase the 2020 and 2021 proof silver eagles, including one with the “V75” privy mark. I kept a very close eye on the site as the coins were released. I realize that i was lucky it all worked out.
    I understand that others were less fortunate, and agree the mint has work to do!
