The United States Mint now offers four RSS feeds. RSS, which is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication, is an easy way to get the news you want whenever it is updated, even if you are not logged onto www.usmint.gov. Currently, the United States Mint provides RSS feeds for press releases, product information and Presidential $1 Coin news. Go to our RSS feeds from the United States Mint page for more information on this modern communication technology.

The new issue of Making Cents provides kids with the hot news for the fall. It links to special holiday pages like the Halloween and the Veterans Day pages for information and activities that can help make these holidays more meaningful.

They'll also learn about Goldie's golden oldie (October's Coin of the Month from 1795) and the "Quarters of the Quarter" (Alaska and Hawaii). Of course, a brand-new crossword puzzle that uses words found in the issue is also waiting to exercise their puzzle-solving skills. Come and check out the fall issue of Making Cents!
