U.S. coin production in October ran the quickest for a month since July, broke a streak of two straight monthly slowdowns, and registered above the one billion level for the ninth month in a row, according to the latest manufacturing figures published by the United States Mint.

Just over 1.2 billion coins — spread across cents, nickels, dimes, and quarters — were minted last month, representing an increase of 3.8% from September but a 13.6% decline from October of last year.

Here’s how the month compares to others in the past year:

October 2020 to October 2021 Circulating Coin Production

Month Mintages Rank
October 2021 1,213.86 M 6
September 2021 1,169.28 M 8
August 2021 1,187.32 M 7
July 2021 1,505.24 M 1
June 2021 1,348.60 M 4
May 2021 1,473.06 M 2
April 2021 1,320.28 M 5
March 2021 1,134.84 M 11
February 2021 1,163.40 M 10
January 2021 919.52 M 12
December 2020 903.50 M 13
November 2020 1,165.10 M 9
October 2020 1,404.69 M 3

 

The Federal Reserve orders more 1-cent coins from the U.S. Mint than any other denomination even as data shows it costs 1.76 cents to make and distribute each one. The Mint made 698.8 million Lincoln cents last month, representing 57.6% of the circulating-quality coins produced.

Month-Over-Month

In month-over month comparisons for coins used daily by Americans, production totals in October saw:

  • 15.4% more Lincoln cents,
  • 40.6% fewer Jefferson nickels,
  • 0.2% fewer Roosevelt dimes, and
  • 3.4% more quarters.

Native American $1 coins and Kennedy half-dollars are no longer ordered by Federal Reserve Banks, but they are still made in circulating quality for coin collectors. Often in January, the U.S. Mint strikes both coins to the expected amounts needed for the entire year.

That wasn’t the case for 2021 halves. Mint data shows none were produced until February, and then only 1.6 million from Denver. Philadelphia finally showed up in March at 1.9 million. Then in April, amounts for both facilities advanced by 5.2 million from Denver and 2.9 million from Philadelphia. In May, production increased by 900,000 from Denver and 300,000 from Philadelphia. Finally, the Philadelphia Mint in August produced another 300,000.

Together, the months add to a combined 13.1 million halves — the most for a year since 2001. Last year’s half-dollar ended with 3.4 million from Denver and 2.3 million from Philadelphia for a total of 5.7 million halves.

Published mintages of 2021 Native American dollars have remained unchanged since January with equal splits of 1.26 million from Denver and 1.26 million from Philadelphia for a combined 2.52 million coins. In contrast, the 2020 dollar saw 1.26 million for Denver and 1.4 million for Philadelphia for 2.66 million coins.

The U.S. Mint started selling rolls and bags of 2021 Native American dollars on Feb. 16. Rolls and bags of 2021 Kennedy half dollars debuted on May 11.

Here’s a summary of all circulating-quality coins produced last month:

US Mint Circulating Coin Production in October 2021

Denomination Denver Philadelphia Total
Lincoln Cents 314,400,000 384,400,000 698,800,000
Jefferson Nickels 44,160,000 36,000,000 80,160,000
Roosevelt Dimes 125,000,000 108,500,000 233,500,000
Quarters 111,200,000 90,200,000 201,400,000
Kennedy Half Dollars 0 0 0
Native American $1s 0 0 0
Total 594,760,000 619,100,000 1,213,860,000

 

U.S. Mint plants in Denver and Philadelphia manufacture all of America’s coins for commerce. Last month, the Denver Mint made 594.76 million coins and the Philadelphia Mint made 619.1 million coins for the combined 1,213,860,000 coins.

YTD Totals

Year to date, the Denver Mint has struck 6,382,780,000 coins and the Philadelphia Mint has struck 6,052,620,000 coins for a combined 12,435,400,000 coins, which is 2.1% fewer than the 12,705,780,000 coins minted through the same period in 2020.

This next table lists coin production totals for 2021 by denomination and by U.S. Mint facility:

YTD 2021 Circulating Coin Production by Denomination

1 ¢ 5 ¢ 10 ¢ 25 ¢ 50 ¢ N.A. $1 Total:
Denver 3327.2M 712.32M 1334.5M 999.8M 7.7M 1.26M 6382.78M
Philadelphia 3311.6M 678.46M 1186.5M 869.4M 5.4M 1.26M 6052.62M
Total 6638.8M 1390.78M 2521M 1869.2M 13.1M 2.52M 12435.4M

 

If the current production pace stretched through to December, the annual mintage for 2021 would top 14.9 billion coins. The U.S. Mint made over 14.77 billion coins for circulation in 2020.

Mintages by Unique Design

In addition to the Native American dollar, the U.S. Mint released (on Feb. 8) another coin with a one-year-only design — the 2021 Tuskegee Airmen quarter for Alabama. Its mintage remained unchanged in October.

This last table offers a breakdown of this year’s mintages that have been reported by coin design:

2021 Circulating Coin Production by Design

Denver Philadelphia Total
Lincoln Cent 3,327,200,000 3,311,600,000 6,638,800,000
Jefferson Nickel 712,320,000 678,460,000 1,390,780,000
Roosevelt Dime 1,334,500,000 1,186,500,000 2,521,000,000
Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site Quarter (Alabama) 304,000,000 160,400,000 464,400,000
George Washington Crossing the Delaware Quarter not reported not reported not reported
Kennedy Half-Dollar 7,700,000 5,400,000 13,100,000
Native American $1 Coin 1,260,000 1,260,000 2,520,000
Total 5,686,980,000 5,343,620,000 11,030,600,000

 

There are 1,404,800,000 in quarters that the U.S. Mint has yet to officially assign to a design. These are 2021 George Washington Crossing the Delaware quarters. Hundreds of millions more of them will be made until the first American Women quarters are issued in 2022.

If the u.s. men can produce this many coins for circulation in one month why and blank is there a coin shortage? Has the mint not figured out how to get these coins into circulation or do they just like producing coins and not put it in them in circulation so that they can pay for storage. This so-called coin shortage is an excuse created by the mint because they don’t know what they’re doing.

Kaiser Wilhelm

JWP, I think the disconnect between how many coins the Mint is producing and the number of coins in circulation has a lot more to do with the number of coins being given in change by retail establishments versus the number of coins being returned to those businesses by way of purchases than it does with how many coins the Mint delivers to the Federal Reserve for distribution to the public via the nation’s banks. Stores give change in bills and coins, while most purchases are made either with credit cards or with bills. As a result most coins end… Read more »

1.2 billion sounds like a lot, but that’s actually just 4 coins per person per month. so, if everyone didn’t spend just 4 coins per month for one reason or another, then there will be a coin shortage even at this rate of coin production. (OK it’s probably not that few, since not everyone uses coins, so if say 100m people use coins regularly, that would be just 12 coins received but not spent per month to cause a shortage). and remember half of these are cents, which most people don’t even want to deal with at all. nobody picks… Read more »

Kaiser, sorry but must disagree. Stores are not getting coins from banks because the banks have none. Banks are not getting coins from the Fed. This has been going on for months. There is a massive distribution problem.

The production figures make no sense. 1869.2M quarters produced YTD 2021? But 1404.8M have yet to be assigned a design- and these are the Wash Xing? The mint isn’t releasing figures on the Wash Xing quarters? All very strange.

c_q

over the last few decades the mint has made hundreds of billions of coins that are all perfectly usable but are sitting around in people’s drawers and ashtrays and couches and whatever. people just don’t bother spending coins because it’s a hassle and they aren’t worth all that much, so people are more apt to pull out dollar bills only (or plastic) when paying. one thing that could help is if the mint just stopped making cents altogether – that’s half their production, it costs more to make than face value, and they are the least likely coins to get… Read more »

Kaiser Wilhelm

c_q,

The Covid-19 situation has enhanced your above detailed scenario because the use of change by consumers is now minimal.

Inkedcoin-shoratge-memes4_LI.jpg
Kaiser Wilhelm

Major D,

That makes me more confused and perplexed than before. So which is it, a distribution problem or a production problem? I suppose it could quite possibly be both since that appears to be true of so many other goods that there are now worsening shortages of at the retail level.

Victor

Yet. I can’t get a brand new roll of any kind. Hm…

Kaiser Wilhelm

Victor,

That’s once again likely the fault of the eternal optimist in me. I may have been wrongly assuming that the Mint is at least doing part of its job correctly and fully for a change, but that may be asking far too much. Alternatively and/or additionally, the Fed may be displaying an untimely laxness in their coin distribution system. Or, the very banks themselves are sitting on their supplies of coinage and providing the rolls only to business establishments rather than handing them out to the public. Who really knows?

Yes, this last thought is most likely (bank sitting on hands and only dealing with businesses).

Kaiser Wilhelm

True that, FViia.

Major D

Nope, at least not in my area. Stores are not getting coins from banks because banks are not getting coins from the Fed. It’s forcing stores to require digital transactions. Maybe this is the Fed’s plan? Or more likely there is a huge distribution bottleneck

Antonio

I’ve been able to get 2021 coins of all denominations. Must only be a problem in certain parts of the country. The only ones I’m not getting are half dollars. I’ve been buying rolls and now have an almost complete set from 1971 to 2001, except for 1987, of course.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Major D,

It’s possible that as with many other goods, even in “normal” times, their distribution and consequent availability is not the same everywhere.

Quarters will always be tough in this COVID environment as businesses that need them hit bank(s) quickly for them – laundry mats, vending machine companies are in dire straits in certain parts of country for coins. Some stores and many consumers only using credit/debit cards so coins are “out there” but not being circulated. Trend for card use even before COVID and now many businesses only accept, or prefer customers to use cards for COVID protocols. Lot of consumers use only their cards also because of COVID fear. If you live in and near cities that use parking meters you… Read more »

Chris,

Your last two sentences describing the current state of a world dealing with all the growing number of strains of COVID are simply brilliant; they say it all!

The most disheartening and depressing part of this extremely unfortunate situation is that we are likely stuck with this state of affairs for some time to come.

Chris Terp

My domestic and overseas clients in Africa and Russia late last year were telling me they don’t think world gets back to normal until sometime in 2023 🙁

Kaiser Wilhelm

Chris, if “normal” is a reference to the way things were before Covid arrived on the scene, then I think theirs is an overly-optimistic projection. My wife, for example, who is the most positive-thinking person I know, doesn’t believe we will ever see a world again that looked like the pre-Covid one.

COVID is not Armageddon Kaiser. Things will return to a normal in due course.

All “plagues” come to an end. Yes people remember as we do have written and oral history of previous plagues and people will revert to their normal ways. Yes, takes time but will happen. Hopefully sooner rather than later – fingers crossed.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Chris, I can see that I didn’t express myself clearly enough in my previous comment. By saying that the world will never be the same again I wasn’t making an inference to a sea change or something so drastically different it would be of what is popularly termed of “biblical proportions.” The geopolitical, economic and sociological landscape has always experienced change after every major world-spanning event, occasion or occurrence, and I doubt we’ll be exempt from that pattern in this case. The possibility of an armageddon and/or apocalypse are the furthest things from my mind. In bringing up the certainty… Read more »

There are many such parades in the cities and towns of both Germany and Austria with St. Nicholas and Krampus. While St. Nicholas also highlights parades in The Netherlands, there his companion character is Black Pete, portrayed (controversially so) in blackface.

I saw the interview he did. While I am siding with him in this case, a revolver can be fired by pulling the hammer back and letting it go – it slams the firing pin into the cap that fires the bullet, ultimately. You dont HAVE to pull the trigger. It produces the same effect.
But this model was supposed to have a half-cock safety feature (so it woudnt do that when dropped), so I hear.
And … just HOW did a LIVE round get into that “prop” gun??
I dont think that one is on AB.

All we have to do is think like Alec, he did the dirty with that chic and she felt guilty and threatened to tell her husband and Alec hired a prop guy he knew could off her before she spoke up – some things are so obvious we over-look them. There were some disagreements on the amount and type of favors she owed him for certain citizenship issues he helped smooth over.

One of the many Chevy Chase movies I missed. Fletch, Vacation, Modern Problems and the one with Goldie Hawn in it were really the only four movies I enjoyed with him in cast.

On my search see had good cast of funny folks so maybe I’ll take the dive and view? Although the reviews were as usual with Chevy Chase films – terrible 😉

Kaiser Wilhelm

Chris,

My favorite Chevy Chase movies are European Vacation and Christmas Vacation. Like with so many other movies one always has to be sure it’s the uncensored version that one is viewing, otherwise too much of the humorous thrust of the film has been lost to the cutting room floor thanks to the puritanical snippers.

And such a laser-sharp focus on numismatic news and issues.

Your parents must be so proud.

Numi, glad someone finally chimed in since sam “i am” tweedy seems to be AWOL today. There are two sides to every coin… thanks for the ladylike hint.

Now that you mention it, Rich, where is that sam tweedybird of ours; do you miss his by now oh so familiar chants of “hey old ladies!!!! hey old ladies!!!!”?

After I put up a French meme I was reminded that Jerry Lewis was a god in France, and of course Dean Martin went over there with him, so I wonder if…

SENZA

I’m wondering why you answered your own question again and and what could it all mean?

Kaiser Wilhelm

Be assured, SENZA, the meaning is far beyond my ken (and barbie).

Hey… yes, I do miss sam tweedy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SENZA

I love how the whiners and alter personalities of FViia always knock our content but never add anything of value to it. There is a numismatic item related to every topic we have covered so far – I concur FViia is “Ladylike”

I understand where you are coming from and if you don’t like it I hope you will exercise your right to

SENZA, I see that you are well versed and experienced in troll handling. Kudos.

Well said!

Your thoughtful and concisely expressed comment is much appreciated, as it reveals your deeply committed reverence for the special brand of enlightenment and humanity demonstrated by your avatar’s namesake.

Thanks a trillion DM,
Numi

Numi

Oh my! No offense intended.

After all, your discretion, dignity and overall sense of decorum are unrivaled in this forum.

Why on Earth would you conclude the post was directed to you? It’s not like I implied you’re a sociopath!

Warmest regards,
Numi

SENZA

Dearest Numi,

Your words do make feel warm and fuzzy all over yet I am only a meek follower of this band of numismatic madmen and our one and only true Fearless Leader Sir Kaiser so if ever I piss you off please follow the chain of command and send all inquiries to our leader. The warm and fuzzy stuff you can always send to me.

Best Regards

I could be mistaken here, SENZA, but I thought for sure that interruptions from interlopers who don’t know the difference between a Deutschmark and a Reichsmark and are pitifully seeking attention should straightaway be referred to sam I am tweedy for disposal.

transgender tweedy as it seems his personality is taking on some feminine qualities making him a transgender – cybil

SENZA, you may well be right about the transgender part but I don’t think that was an alternate personality of his or of anyone else’s that regularly frequents this site. I’m guessing that was a certified sociopath who somehow slipped out of his locked rubber room.

P.S. to SENZA, ahoy!

I misinterpreted your comment to mean that you thought that that random stray knucklehead Numi and our perpetually playful site mascot sam I am tweedy to be one and the same lunatic on the fringe, but upon much further and above all far longer reflection I now see that wasn’t at all what you were saying. My bad.

With large establishments, like Knotts Berry Farm, going cashless, it’s inevitable less coins will circulate.

Kaiser Wilhelm

What’s interesting though, Domenic, is that even though there are ever more cashless transactions that trend doesn’t seem to have put a dent in the national coin shortage.

Trump made Walmart even more dominant and Walmart uses it’s 3rd party sellers to create the price gouging nightmare wrongfully called a supply chain issue.

Kaiser Wilhelm

SENZA, I’ve noticed that about the 3rd party sellers that Walmart uses; their prices are obscenely outrageous! As if that wasn’t bad enough, they keep raising their prices even more until they’re so high that you think you must be getting a footlocker-sized supply of paper towels when you’re actually only getting one wrapped pack. It’s INSANE and it’s CRIMINAL!

It’s more because most of the 4.7 million mom and pop stores are going out of business and that just plain stops coin circulation

And they’re disappearing fast, SENZA, almost as fast as the pocket change. Even some of the former giants are now shells of themselves or gone entirely.
