Program helps people build complete collections

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Mint today announced the debut of its Subscription Program, a convenient way for coin enthusiasts to build and cultivate coin collections. This program represents a no-fee, no-hassle approach for coin collectors not wanting to miss a U.S. Mint product offering for selected products. Upon becoming a subscriber, the program automatically fills orders and delivers products to the customer’s door. Customers can sign up for the program at www.USMINT.gov and choose from a variety of subscription plans. Subscription options include: 50 State Quarters™ First Day Coin Covers, United States Mint Proof Sets®, 50 State Quarters™ Proof Sets, Uncirculated Coin Sets® and Silver Proof Sets®.

According to David Pickens, Associate Director of Numismatics at the U.S. Mint, “This customer service enhancement makes it easier for program members to regularly purchase products. At the same time, it assures them that products available for a limited time or in limited quantities will be available to them.”

“Part of the joy of coin collecting is watching your collection grow,” said Pickens. “The U.S. Mint’s Subscription Program allows our customers to collect their favorite coins, year after year, without fear of missing an offer. As a way of saying thanks for their continued customer loyalty, we will automatically deliver their collectibles directly to their doorstep.”

The Subscription Program is available through the U.S. Mint’s website at www.USMINT.gov; any additional questions can be answered by calling 1-800-USA-MINT.

Created by Congress in 1792, the U.S. Mint today is the world’s largest manufacturer of coins, medals and coin-based consumer products.
