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 originally placed within the Department of State. Per the terms of the Coinage Act, the first Mint building was in Philadelphia, then the capital of the United States; it was the first building of the Republic raised under the Constitution. Today, the Mint's headquarters are in Washington D.C. which is not a coin producing facility. It operates mint facilities in Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco, and West Point, New York and a bullion depository at Fort Knox, Kentucky. Official Mints were once also located in Carson City, Nevada, Charlotte, North Carolina, Dahlonega, Georgia, New Orleans, Louisiana, Washington, D.C.; and even in Manila, in the Philippines.The Mint was made an independent agency in 1799. It converted precious metals into standard coin for anyone's account with no seigniorage charge beyond the refining costs. Under the Coinage Act of 1873, the Mint became part of the Department of the Treasury. It was placed under the auspices of the Treasurer of the United States in 1981. Legal tender coins of today are minted solely for the Treasury's account. Wikipedia.

The United States Mint today announced a call for artists to design the obverse (heads side) of the commemorative coin honoring the first manned moon landing. Authorized by law, the Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Coin Program celebrates the innovation and bravery of the successful mission and the fallen astronauts who preceded that endeavor. The competition invites artists to design a common obverse image that is emblematic of the United States Space Program leading up to the first manned Moon landing. The winning artist will receive $5,000 and have his or her initials included on the coins. Competition details and entry can be accessed at http://www.usmint.gov/apollo. “The success of the crew and the team behind Apollo 11 nearly 50 years ago holds special meaning to Americans,” said David Motl, Acting Principal Deputy Director of the United States Mint. “The Apollo 11 Commemorative Coin Design Competition presents a unique way for artists to capture the sense of pride for such an enormous accomplishment, while also memorializing fallen astronauts.” Phase One of the competition, which is open through June 29, 2017, or until 1,000 entries are received, calls for artists age 18 and older to submit portfolios of their prior work. From these entries, an expert jury will select no more than 20 applicants to participate in Phase Two. During Phase Two, artists will create an original design for the common obverse of the coin, which shall be submitted as a digital file. The final winner will be announced in 2018. As authorized by law, the common reverse (tails side) will depict a representation of a close-up of the famous ‘‘Buzz Aldrin on the Moon’’ photograph taken July 20, 1969, which shows the visor and part of the helmet of the famed astronaut. An expert jury composed of members of the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts and the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee will review and score design submissions. Both groups provide experienced and impartial expertise in advancing the state of public art and the interests of American citizens and coin collectors. The jury will choose a winning design to recommend the Secretary of the Treasury for selection. With the winning design selected, the United States Mint will begin issuing curved gold, silver, clad, and five ounce silver commemorative coins in 2019. Surcharges for this program are authorized to be paid in various denominations to three recipient organizations: the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum’s ‘‘Destination Moon’’ exhibit, the Astronauts Memorial Foundation, and the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation. For the first time in recent history, this commemorative coin program will be composed of four coins instead of three, including $5 gold coins, $1 silver coins, half-dollar clad coins, and five ounce silver proof coins. This will be the first time that a curved version of a five ounce silver coin is produced and offered by the United States Mint. “The Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Coin Program represents a meaningful and exciting undertaking for the United States Mint,” said Motl. “We look forward to the public’s participation in creating the final obverse design.” About the United States Mint The United States Mint was created by Congress in 1792 and became part of the Department of the Treasury in 1873. It is the Nation's sole manufacturer of legal tender coinage and is responsible for producing circulating coinage for the Nation to conduct its trade and commerce.

How has the Trump administration affected the price of gold? Is it a good time to buy or sell? How can you avoid overpaying when purchasing gold and avoid receiving too little when you sell? The best ways to buy, sell and store gold and add precious metals to a diversified portfolio will be the topic of a free educational seminar at the National Rifle Association’s Annual Meetings & Events (http://www.NRAam.org) in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, April 29, 2017.

The one-hour 8th Annual Freedom First Financial Seminar will be open to the public and begins at 11:00 am in room B-310 in the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, site of the NRA events. “Gold already has performed well so far this year, and it has a good chance of continuing to rise under the Trump administration in view his plans to significantly increase military spending and because gold tends to rise in the first year of new presidents,” said Fuljenz. “We’ve certainly seen an increase in new customers buying gold as well as existing customers purchasing more since Trump was elected.” Universal Coin & Bullion is the Official Bullion and Rare Coin Expert of NRA Publications. The company will co-sponsor the NRA Prayer Breakfast on Sunday, April 30. The company also will have a display of gold coins at its booth #1142 during the 2017 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits.

The United States recently earned top honors in two coin design categories at the World Money Fair in Berlin, Germany. United States Mint (Mint) officials accepted two Coin of the Year (COTY) Awards on behalf of the Nation. The U.S. won in the category of Best Circulating Coin for its America the Beautiful Program quarter honoring Kisatchie National Forest and in the category of Most Inspirational Coin for its March of Dimes Silver Dollar commemorative coin. “The designers, sculptors and engravers of the Mint comprise the very best talent in the numismatic industry,” said David Motl, Acting Principal Deputy Director of the Mint. “Artists are an indispensable part of the coin production process and the Mint congratulates them on this well-deserved recognition.” The March of Dimes Silver Dollar, which celebrates the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the March of Dimes Foundation, includes a reverse (tails side) that was designed and sculpted by sculptor-engraver Don Everhart, who has been with the Mint since 2004. The obverse (heads side) of the coin features the profiles of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Dr. Jonas Salk, two leaders in the fight against polio, and was designed by Paul Balan, a member of the Artistic Infusing Program (AIP) since 2010 and sculpted by Mint sculptor-engraver Michael Gaudioso, who has been with the Mint since 2009. The America the Beautiful Program quarter honoring Kisatchie National Forest features a wild turkey in flight over blue stem grass with long leaf pine in the background on the reverse. The design is by Susan Gamble, who was part of the AIP from 2004 until her death in 2015. Sculptor-engraver Joseph Menna, who joined the Mint in 2005, sculpted the design. The COTY Awards recognize artistic talent among 10 design categories. A panel of international judges selects from coins issued two years prior to the year of the award. Both of the coins were issued in 2015 and are no longer available from the Mint.
