What Is the United States Mint?

The United States Mint makes coins. Its main task is to make sure the people of the nation have enough coins to carry on daily business. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing makes paper money and, like the United States Mint, is an agency of the Department of the Treasury. In addition to coins for commerce (buying and selling), the United States Mint also makes other coins and medals for collectors.

Where is the Mint? There are six places around the country that make up this federal agency. Each one is called a “facility.”

What Is a Facility?

A facility is a place or building set up for certain reasons. As a house has a kitchen for cooking and a bedroom for sleeping but the rooms are still part of one house, so the United States Mint has six facilities with different purposes.

From the headquarters in Washington, DC, the Director of the Mint oversees facilities in Philadelphia, PA; Denver, CO; San Francisco, CA; West Point, NY; and the U.S. Bullion Depository at Fort Knox, KY (shown on the map above).
