The United States Mint primarily produces circulating coinage for the United States to conduct its trade and commerce. The Mint was created by Congress with the Coinage Act of 1792, and placed within the Department of State. Per the terms of the Coinage Act, the first Mint building was in Philadelphia, then the U.S. capital; it was the first building of the Republic raised under the Constitution. Today, the Mint is headquartered in Washington, D.C. and operates mint facilities in Philadelphia; Denver; San Francisco; West Point, New York; and a bullion depository at Fort Knox, Kentucky.[1]

The Mint was made an independent agency in 1799, and under the Coinage Act of 1873, became part of the Department of the Treasury. It was placed under the auspices of the Treasurer of the United States in 1981.
