United States Mint

United States Mint

Since Congress created the United States Mint on April 2, 1792, it has grown tremendously. The United States Mint receives more than $1 billion in annual revenues. As a self-funded agency, the United States Mint turns revenues beyond its operating expenses over to the General Fund of the Treasury.

At the Mint, visitors can see actual coin production. Exhibits and audio/video stations provide information about the United States Mint and its history, coinage and current programs
