U.S. Mint Reports
Primarily consisting of the Mint Director's annual report, this series contains information often found nowhere else, revealing internal workings of the Mint and copious statistical data. In addition to the annual reports, this series includes other reports as issued, for example, results of assay tests of foreign gold and silver coins. Beginning in 2010, the biennial report on coinage production cost and cost saving alternatives is included in this series.
Note: Reports are categorized by year published rather than year covered. In some cases, the annual report for a given year was not published until the following year.

The number of each denomination minted in 1801 is given, and it is noted that most of the used gold was deposited as bullion or lumps. As mentioned in past reports, the director has not seen the notice, as required by law after more than $50,000 of the cents and half cents have been deposited at the Treasury, that no other copper coins are current; presently, more than $93,000 of the copper coins have been deposited."
