Did you know the Walking Liberty Design first appeared on Adolph Weinman’s 1916 circulating half-dollar?

Did you know that tobacco was used as money in the American colonies? Share this fact with a friend.

Actually you're at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, which is different from the Mint. We make coins!

Most U.S. coin production starts with the arrival of coils - rolled-up strips of flat metal. A coil can weigh up to 10,000 pounds!

Die Blanks are hubbed (adding the design) at room temperature in a process called cold forging. This method eliminates thermal expansion.

The die shop is where the tooling that makes the coins is formed, treated and finished.

Did you know that some artists create a three-dimensional “clay” model, called a digital sculpt, on a computer?
