The United States Mint was founded in 1792. Throughout its 221 year history, the US Mint has been responsible for striking the circulating coinage of the United States. These coins are typically used for everyday commerce as a means of fulfilling the monetary obligations created through retail transactions.

In addition to the circulating coinage, the US Mint also strikes coins for numismatic purposes. These coins, while still of legal tender and useable for commerce, are generally sought out by coin enthusiasts and kept as part of collections.

Today, the US Mint operates four different facilities throughout the United States. This includes facilities located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Denver, Colorado; San Francisco, California; and West Point, New York. Of the four, the Philadelphia and Denver faculties are currently responsible for the circulating coinage of the United States. Those two locations also produce many numismatic products as do the other two remaining locations - San Francisco and West Point.

Coins struck at each location bear a mintmark indicating their facility of production. For instance, a 'P' indicates the coin was struck in Philadelphia whereas a 'D' indicates it was produced in Denver.

Circulating coins of the United States are struck from varying compositions of base metals. The US Mint also produces coins from precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum. These coins all bear a legal tender status, but their melt and numismatic values are generally much higher.

The melt value of a coin is roughly equivalent to what its content of precious metal would trade for on the open market. Thus, the melt value of an American Silver Eagle (which contains one ounce of .999 fine silver) would be approximately equal to what one ounce of silver is currently trading for.

Many coins also have a numismatic value associated with it. This is the value the coin is worth to collectors. A coin's numismatic value is generally higher based on condition and rarity.
