Don Everhart

Sculptor-Engraver
United States Mint

Don Everhart became a member of the United States Mint team of sculptor-engravers in January 2004. Born in York, Pennsylvania, he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from Kutztown State University in 1972. The following year, Everhart joined the Franklin Mint as a designer and attained the position of staff sculptor, which he held for five years.

In March 1980, Everhart left the Franklin Mint to pursue a freelance career. During this period, his projects included work with figurines, plates, coins and medals. His clientele included prominent companies such as Walt Disney and Tiffany and international mints such as the Royal Norwegian and British Royal Mints. Everhart has received numerous commissions, most notably Georgetown University’s Sports Hall of Fame, a 24-piece bronze installation.

Everhart’s work has been exhibited internationally and is included in several permanent collections, including the Smithsonian Institution, the British Museum, the American Numismatic Society and the National Sculpture Society. He also received the prestigious American Numismatic Association’s Sculptor of the Year Award in 1994. In 1997, his submission was chosen as the official inaugural medal for President Clinton’s second term.

Everhart is a former president of the American Medallic Sculpture Association (1993-1994) and is a fellow member of the National Sculpture Society.
