Earlier today, July 15, the U.S. Mint launched MyUSMint, its first mobile application for smartphones. The app allows easy access to educational information and collector products, including the ability to place and track orders, according to Lateefah Simms, public affairs specialist in the Mint’s Office of Corporate Communications.
"We’re constantly striving to find new ways to serve our customers and the American public," said Rhett Jeppson, Principal Deputy Director of the U.S. Mint. "The new app comes on the heels of introducing a new order management system and reflects our commitment to be a world class organization."
The mobile app includes home screen customization options that, with a touch, can pull up the Mint’s gift suggestions, best sellers, product schedule, history, news and information on circulating coins.
