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.
