Since its founding in 1792, the United States Mint has accumulated many historical documents and artifacts.  The primary source material presented in this Historical Archive can provide new insight into the relationships among numismatics, art, design, and government.

This Archive contains legislation, annual report excerpts, press releases, articles, and images of coins dating back to 1892.  You can browse just images, just documents, or both.

For the most recent images of current coins, consult the Newsroom Image Library.  If you are interested in using any coin images, please read the design use policy.
