Message from the President of the United States, Transmitting a Report of the Director of the Mint, for the Year 1819
Mint Director Robert Patterson's report for the year 1819, delivered March 11, 1820. Also found in the American State Papers, class 3 (finance), vol. 3, report no. 585.
Paul Hybert summary: "A short report from mint director Patterson to President Monroe, who relayed it to Congress. The small production was due to months with only small bullion deposits. With just a single press, and, of course, 80 tons of copper, 7.5 million cent pieces could be coined in a year."
