100 Greatest Women On Coins Series: Eleanor Roosevelt

First Ladies are a great stitch in the fabric that makes up American democracy. Wives, partners, and sometimes political forces in their own right, their contributions to the four-year term White House stint vary from woman to woman. Perhaps one of the most active if not the most active First Lady’s to have ever filled the role was the one who also held the title for the longest amount of time.

Continuing our 100 Greatest Women On Coins blog series, we explore one of the most admired and influential American women in history as pointed out by Whitman Publishing’s top 100 list. With author Ron Guth in the driver’s seat, we take a look at one of the most outspoken First Lady’s to have ever held the title in addition to her activism that exceeded her husband’s presidential ...read more

With the way things are going now with the United States Mint’s production schedule for the year 2020, it is hard telling what the latter half of the year is going to look like.

CCAC Reviews Designs For 2021 Gold and Silver Eagle Reverse

The United States Mint is getting closer and closer to the final decision for the brand new reverses of both the Gold American Eagle and Silver American Eagle bullion coins for 2021. We mentioned at the tail end of last year that Mint Director David J. Ryder confirmed that anti-counterfeiting measures for the bullion coins were being actively pursued. The redesign of the reverses would incorporate both state-of-the-art security and protection with brand new anti-counterfeiting technology, something other world mints have already implemented in their bullion coins.

No matter the reason for the design changes, the hobby was set abuzz and many were left wondering just how different the designs for the most collected and most beloved bullion coin program would be. On June 23rd, the Citizens Coinage Advisory...read more

Vintage United States gold. It is a beautiful thing, is it not?

The History of the Bullion Depository at Fort Knox

If you are someone who keeps up with our blogs, first and foremost, thank you. Also, you may know that we have covered the history of all the branches, current and old, of the United States Mint. Carson City, New Orleans, San Francisco, West Point, Philadelphia, Denver. You may be thinking, what else is there? While it’s not a place of production, it still very much so is an extension of the United States Mint. What are we talking about? Fort Knox.

“It’s like Fort Knox.” Do you recall ever hearing those words or words like them used to describe a place that is hard to get into? Most likely you have and it means just that. Precautions, safety, security, authorizations, access. All those things are also used to describe a place that not just anyone can walk...read more
