Stop By and See Us

On December 2 through 4, the United States Mint will be presenting at the annual conference for the National Council for the Social Studies in Washington, DC.  Stop by booth #352 to learn more about our educational programs and activities.  If you can't make the conference, be sure to visit our updated Educators section online and browse our collection of more than 500 lesson plans and Teacher Features.

Coin Memory Game Expands!

Have you checked out the Coin Memory game lately?  It has undergone a wonderful transformation.  Not only has the design been updated, but you get to choose which H.I.P. Pocket Change Pal and which set of coins you'd like to play the game with!

Both levels in this game test the memory and increase coin knowledge through an information page.  The six collections of coins include information on each of the coin designs in the set currently in play.

The easier level (8 pairs) includes images of the 50 State Quarters® and the America the Beautiful Quarters® programs.  (These sets appear in random groups of 8.)  The more challenging level (12 pairs) uses circulating, historical, commemorative, and Presidential $1 coins.  Which one will be your favorite?
