Since 1792, the United States Mint has been making coins...and history.  As one of the nation's oldest federal agencies, we have a fascinating story.


Behind every coin design is a talented artist who brings innovative ideas to life on their small coin "canvas."  Meet the artists behind our circulating and collectible products.
