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.

Mint of the United States. : Message from the president of the United States, transmitting a report of the director of the Mint, shewing the operation of that institution, for the year 1825 ...
Mint Director Samuel Moore's report for the year 1825. The same text appears in the American State Papers, finance (class 3), volume 5, report no. 746.
Paul Hybert summary: "A report from mint director Moore to President Adams, who relayed it to Congress. The amount of gold bullion sourced from North Carolina, at just under $17,000 worth, is more than in any prior year. Although the value of minted coins is less than in the prior year, the number of minted gold and silver coins exceeds that from any year; this is partly due to the availability of less silver bullion, and the decision to produce more silver coins of a small denomination."
