Coin and Medal Programs

We produce all of our nation’s circulating coinage as well as collectible coins and medals treasured by collectors everywhere.

Collecting Basics

From aesthetics to investments, the reasons to collect coins are many, which makes collecting one of the most rewarding hobbies around. We can help you get started.


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.

For Educators and For Kids

Education has always been a major initiative for the Mint. We offer a wealth of information and activities you can use whether you’re an educator, parent, or child.


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.
