Billion coins struck in November

Another month, another billion coins at the U.S. Mint.

Though the combined output from Denver and Philadelphia backed off from the 1.4 billion struck in October, November’s output still put a lot of coins on the production scoreboard.


Only quarter output rose from the prior month. The November figure of 145,000,000 compares to 125,600,000 in October.

Cents, nickels, and dimes declined in November.

For the year, almost 12.6 billion coins have been struck. There is one month left to go.

Roughly 60 percent of all coins struck this year have been cents.
