G.W. Quarter holding "New Coin" document in front of the U.S. Capitol.

It all starts in Washington, D.C. Before a
coin ever becomes a coin, it has to be voted on

Hand stamping "approved" on the coin document.

If Congress thinks it's a good idea and the President approves it,
a new coin is authorized for the United States Mint to make.
