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 Director Samuel Moore's report for the year 1832.
Paul Hybert summary: "A short report from mint director Samuel Moore to President Jackson, who relayed it to Congress. With the increasing domestic gold production, the U.S. mines produced one-sixth as much gold as was produced by the mines of Europe and America. The decline in coin production is blamed on the epidemics in the eastern U.S. cities."
