U.S. Mint reopens Washington, D.C.’s ‘Coin Store’

The U.S. Mint reopened the doors to its Washington, D.C.-based Coin Store today after being closed for more than two years to reduce employees’ exposure to COVID-19.

“Having customers coming back to the store is a great opportunity for the Mint to interact with the numismatic community,” said Matt Holben, the mint’s associate director of sales and marketing. “Listening to our customers’ feedback, observing their reactions, and engaging in conversation with customers lead to better product development.”

Holben went on to describe the significance of having the store open again after a long hiatus.

“The Coin Store in Washington, DC serves a dynamic purpose,” he added. “The location attracts D.C. area visitors who may not be numismatists, thus creating an opportunity to engage the customer and share why American coinage is so important. The store is also a gathering place for our existing customers to come in and enjoy our large inventory of coins and medals.”

The store will offer a wide variety of U.S. Mint coins and medals for sale. The initial inventory will include limited quantities of some 2021 “American Eagle” gold and silver coin products.
