U.S. Mint hopes to work with RCM on product development

At its third annual numismatic forum this fall, the U.S. Mint announced plans to collaborate with other major mints, including the Royal Canadian Mint, on product development ranging from bullion to collector coins.

Held in October at the U.S. Bureau of Printing and Engraving in Washington, D.C., the forum saw nearly 70 members of that country’s numismatic community discuss “collectively building numismatics.”

The plans include consulting with other mints – the RCM, Royal Mint and South African Mint, among others – about bullion coinage. Specifically, U.S. Mint Director David Ryder said the U.S. Mint is interested in exploring anti-counterfeiting measures.

Ryder also said the U.S. Mint is planning to collaborate with the RCM as well as the Mexican Mint on product development, including a potential three-coin “North American mint” set.
