Message from the President of the United States, Communicating the Report of the Director of the Mint
Mint Director Elias Boudinot's report for the year 1804. This material is also found in the American State Papers, class 3 (Finance), volume 2, no. 228.
Paul Hybert summary: "A short report from mint director Elias Boudinot to President Jefferson, who relayed it to Congress. About eleven thousand dollars of the gold coinage is produced from gold found in one county of North Carolina; more gold from that area is expected. The coinage of cents is less profitable due to the increased price of copper in Europe."
