First Quarter 2024 Sees U.S. Mint’s Coin Production Plummet to 1.73 Billion, Lowest Since 2010

This CoinNews photo shows a stack of 2024 Reverend Dr. Pauli Murray quarters. The Mint produced 354.2 million of them for circulation.

The United States Mint produced just over 1.73 billion coins for circulation in the first three months of this year, marking its slowest first-quarter pace since 2010 and nearly half the amount struck through the first quarter of last year.

In March, the U.S. Mint again scaled back its coin production pace, with its facilities in Philadelphia and Denver shipping just 332.7 million coins for circulation. This marks drops of 48.4% from February and 72% from March 2023. The monthly level below 1 billion represents the seventh consecutive month following eight straight months above that threshold.

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

March 2023 to March  2024 Circulating Coin Production

Month Mintages Rank
March 2024 332.70 M 12
February 2024 644.86 M 8
January 2024 755.98 M 7
December 2023 151.80 M 13
November 2023 604.409 M 9
October 2023 501.911 M 11
September 2023 546.03 M 10
August 2023 1,030.38 M 6
July 2023 1,139.30 M 5
June 2023 1,297.18 M 2
May 2023 1,417.78 M 1
April 2023 1,250.32 M 3
March 2023 1,187.94 M 4

 

The primary mission of the U.S. Mint is to manufacture coins in response to public demand. The Mint produces, sells, and subsequently delivers circulating coins to Federal Reserve Banks and their coin terminals to support their services to commercial banks and other financial institutions.

Even though it costs the Mint 3.07 cents to make and distribute each 1-cent coin, the Federal Reserve always orders more of them than any other denomination. In March, the Mint struck 189.2 million Lincoln cents, accounting for 56.9% of all circulating-quality coins produced for the month.

Month-Over-Month

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

  • 53.7% fewer Lincoln cents,
  • 100% fewer Jefferson nickels,
  • 100% fewer Roosevelt dimes, and
  • 13.6% more quarters.

Mintages of Native American Dollars and Kennedy Halves

The U.S. Mint also strikes other coins in circulating quality, namely half dollars and dollars. Native American $1 coins are no longer ordered by the Federal Reserve, but they are still made in circulating quality for coin collectors. The same was true for Kennedy half dollars until recently — years 2021, 2022, and 2023.

Usually, in January, the U.S. Mint produces both denominations to the expected amounts needed for the entire year. However, that has not been the case for Kennedy halves in each of the three prior years, as the Federal Reserve unexpectedly ordered millions more for circulation — roughly 12 million, 7 million, and 18 million in fiscal years 2021, 2022, and 2023.

It has not been disclosed whether any 2024 Kennedy half dollars will be produced for general circulation. However, figures for 2024 changed in January, and then again in March, with the latest results at 4.8 million from the Denver Mint and 2.8 million from the Philadelphia Mint, for a total of 7.6 million coins. These figures compare to production runs in 2023 totaling 27.8 million from Denver and 30.2 million from Philadelphia, amounting to 58 million coins — the highest since 1983, when it reached 66.6 million.

Unlike the usual practice, the mintages of the Native American dollar changed in February instead of having already been completed for the year. This adjustment was prompted by the absence of reported minting activity for the dollar in Denver throughout January. As of February, the total mintages for the dollar stand at 1.12 million from Denver and an equal 1.12 million from Philadelphia, culminating in a combined 2.24 million coins—a precise match to the splits and overall total recorded in 2023. Notably, no further alterations were reported in March, maintaining the previously established figures.

On Jan. 29, the U.S. Mint started selling Denver- and Philadelphia-minted rolls, bags, and boxes of 2024 Native American dollars. On April 23, which was recently changed from May 7, the bureau is expected to offer collector rolls and bags of circulating 2024 Kennedy halves.

This next table shows 2024 circulating coin mintages by production facility, denomination, and design.

U.S. Mint Circulating Coin Production in March 2024

Denver Philadelphia Total
Lincoln Cent 124,000,000 65,200,000 189,200,000
Jefferson Nickel 0 0 0
Roosevelt Dime 0 0 0
Quarters 75,400,000 66,200,000 141,600,000
Kennedy Half-Dollar 1,900,000 0 1,900,000
Native American $1 Coin 0 0 0
Total 201,300,000 131,400,000 332,700,000

 

In the overall production totals for March, the Denver Mint produced 201.3 million coins, while the Philadelphia Mint produced 131.4 million coins, resulting in a combined total of 332.7 million coins.

First Quarter 2023

During the first quarter of this year, the Denver Mint has struck 912.88 million coins, and the Philadelphia Mint has made 820.66 million coins, bringing the total to 1,733,540,000 coins. This is 49.6% fewer than the 3,442,560,000 coins manufactured during the first quarter of 2023. The quarterly level was the lowest since 797.23 million coins were struck in the first quarter of 2010.

If the current production pace were to continue through December, the annual mintage for 2024 would reach 6.9 billion coins. In comparison, the U.S. Mint manufactured over 11.38 billion coins for circulation in 2023, marking the lowest output since 2012.

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

2024 Rev. Dr. Pauli Murray Quarter Mintages

In addition to the 2024 Native American dollar with its one-year-only design, the U.S. Mint has also released the first two of five issues for 2024 from their four-year program of American Women Quarters™. These two coins represent the eleventh and twelfth overall in the series, each featuring a unique design.

The Rev. Dr. Pauli Murray quarter, the first quarter design for this year, began circulating on Jan. 2. On Feb. 1, the Mint made rolls and bags of the quarter available for purchase by the public. According to the latest figures from the Mint, a total of 354.2 million Murray quarters were minted, with 185.8 million coming from Denver and 168.4 million from Philadelphia. This marks the lowest mintage total for any quarter in the series to date. In terms of production by facility across the series, the 2024-P ranks as the scarcest, while the 2024-D ties for third scarcest.

Of the total production, 99.4 million quarters have not yet been officially assigned a design by the U.S. Mint. This represents a portion of the many more Patsy Takemoto Mink quarters yet to be minted. Patsy Takemoto Mink quarters entered circulation on March 25, and on March 28, the the U.S. Mint began selling rolls and bags of them to the public.

The Rev.Dr. coin gets my nod for ugly coin of the year award.

Major D

Yes, it looks like she is behind bars, and not very flattering to isolate her face in an oval like that. Very strange looking IMO.

Copy that.

Every time I see this coin, I get an anxiety attack. Next article please…

I found an article in Coin World dated July 20, 2020 about The Cent Project 2020: “The goal to gather volunteers to search circulated boxes of Lincoln cents from their local banks and record a count of year and Mint mark for each box.” It was launched and coordinated by Charles Daughtrey, who said it would “take 44,000 people scattered across the US to cumulatively sort through 220 million cents” (2 boxes each). He said he would publish the results. With COVID happening, it was extended into 2021. Then nothing. The web page still exists, but no updates. Does anyone… Read more »

CaliSkier

When I read your “Cent Project” post, my initial reaction on that was, WHAT? Where are you going to get 44,000 people, collectors, numismatists, roll hunters or whatever to sign up for and search through them, looking for mint marks and dates? Where? So after a very brief look, here is your answer. Chuck Daugherty said on Jan 14, 2023 Cent Project FB page: “Due to Covid and the fallout with coins due to the pandemic, and due to a general lack of interest in the project in the first place, I am closing this project. Thank you to those… Read more »

CaliSkier, thank you for the answer. Regarding your P.S., I believe that whoever volunteered would get to do whatever with the cents- it was just a reporting thing. I routinely get a box every month to search through and end up keeping about 20% (10 rolls out of 50) that are separated by wheat, 1959-1982 copper, 1982 zinc, S-mints, and AUs of all years. Two boxes to search through is not a big thing for searchers. I suppose someone could always lie, but why? At any rate, in looking at the web page I learned something new about identifying the… Read more »

For any not wanting to pay the premiums for Kennedy Half dollar rolls, consider the following: “The best banks for circulated half-dollars are big-name banks with businessmen patrons. Corporate banks deal with large amounts of circulated coins and will have more on hand. Banks that specialize in merchant business will often sell coin rolls to non-account holders. Smaller banks may be more reluctant.” I’ll add, that smaller banks are “full on”, reluctant! Now would be a good time to find a bank or teller, bank manager, that may be willing to help you out IMO. Or perhaps, stop in and… Read more »

Yes, I’ve seen that look many times. Then I get questioned as to why I need them, what am I doing? If you say you’re a collector, it’s usually not a happy result– as the response invariably is that they reserve coins for business customers only. However, I have been successful having banks order boxes for me- but you need to have an account. That’s where banking at a large national is helpful, because then you can try multiple branches- and they all have different batches of coins. But it’s a real crapshoot getting new coins I’ve found. It takes… Read more »

I should probably do that. I miss getting half-dollars and dollar coins with my monthly deposits. I used a small community bank for years because they would get them for me and not treat me like I was a bother to them (and I had what amounted to a burner bank account with a different bank so I had a place to dump the excess I couldn’t pass out in change to my customers). But then that bank was merged with another (and then another) and both of them refused to order the coins anymore in order to “keep inventory… Read more »

Mike Unser reports, “The primary mission of the U.S. Mint is to manufacture coins in response to public demand.” That pretty much sums things up with one sentence for me. There’s plenty of circulating coinage out there. The Covid Stimulus$/unemployment$ scams are all dried up and people are stopping by the Coinstar kiosks’ once again. Trying to afford baked beans, ice cream cones, and lawnmower gas lol. I might throw in one of my rolls of ”rare” 2009-D rosie’s on my next Coinstar Zinc dump!…Make a few of my fellow ‘hunters’ score the big one! PS: Nice PM bump on… Read more »

Gold and silver have been up significantly so far in 2024. Gold on January 1, 2024 was $2,063, and now @ $2,399 @ 11:08 MST 4/19/24. Ag was $23.86 January 1, 2024, now @ $28.67. Ag is up 20.16% and Au is up 16.29%, on the year so far. (83.60:1, Ag to Au ratio)

AKBob, glad to hear about your success selling recently on ThEBay! Also, I’d love to hear what Pre 33’s, you may be on the look out for or if it’s just a matter of the best premium you can find at a given time, on slabbed Pre 33’s? Of course let us know about any that you might pick up, please and Good Luck in your Quest!

AKBob

CaliSkier, thx for the support. I haven’t decided yet. I don’t know if I should just purchase Pre ‘33 Gold that have a low premium or ones that are High(er) Grade and maybe smaller mintages or coins that are conditionally rare. Like MS65 or higher (?)!!! Any suggestions? I know I’d love the higher grades but I’m old and not sure if they will even go up much in value. I wonder if I should just stack gold (graded) hoping for spot to continue up. I think Golds going to hit $3000 within a year, possibly by the end of… Read more »

AK,
Here’s a guy I follow. He’s around your age, and has been doing(a long time)what you are getting ready to do. I have been doing exactly what he has been doing for the last few months(sans a coin club & my modern fixations)He is a no-nonsense Pre-33 guy.. Many a good video advice from this fellow..
Never buy an uncertified pre-33 Gold coin is his advice–I agree…

Rick

I’m seeing the video as unavailable?
Can anyone see it?

Rick

Here’s a different video. If not allowed, maybe it’s YT or CN..
His YT Id is ‘Coins Roc’..A pre-33 guy…

AKBob

Thx Rick!! I’ve already started watching his videos thx to You!! He is very knowledgeable and easy to listen to and follow! I happen to agree with him. It pays to ask questions and get answers here that might be difficult to get otherwise. I’ve made a few Gold purchases on Modern Gold already and all but one has gone up substantially and NOT because the melt value has gone up either. That’s a Win Win to me!!!! I am going to pretty much stick with the Pre ‘33 Gold as well unless the Mint releases something in Gold that… Read more »

Rick,

Great video. My coin dealer always talks about all the fake $1 gold coins he had bought in the past and the gold plated V nickels passed as $5 gold coins. The TPGs are a mixed blessing, but they’re good at counterfeit detection – something we take for granted. There is so much fake stuff out there (artwork, autographs, coins, watches, currency, stamps, baseball cards, etc.) and most of it is sold on-line. If it can be faked, it has already been faked.

The adjacent video on grading was really good too.

Cheers

Major D

Interesting, you can’t trust your lying eyes. Sounds like a way to sell unappealing coins by convincing someone it’s something it isn’t by way of a grade. I just stay away from graded/slabbed coins. And gold coins, too. And older Morgans, etc. You don’t have to worry about counterfeiting with the lower valued coins and sets, because it’s not worth it for someone to counterfeit. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t value there.

AKBob

Thx for sharing E1. I watched it and realized I’ve watched him on other videos. I like him as well. Seems very honest, sometimes brutally honest which I do appreciate as well as pretty knowledgeable. I’m realizing I should do some refresher courses as I watch these videos. There’s a great deal to learn and know in this hobby. Thx again!!

Well, as always, Good Luck ALL!!!

E 1

AKBob,

Yea, I love this hobby too. A little bit of expertise can go a long ways. I also appreciate the brutal honesty approach myself. It keeps things real. It must have been all those “Robert Frost” shorts I read as a kid that made me this way.

“Nature’s first green is gold, its hardest hue to hold….”

Cheers

Major D

AKBob, if you want to stack gold, I’d suggest buying the Costco 1-oz 24-kt PAMP Suisse Lady Fortuna Veriscan gold bars. Very low premium there.

AKBob

Thx Major D! That’s a great suggestion but I like collecting money, especially Gold money (coins), lol. I have considered it but looking at coins is much more appealing. I think the Bullion ASE’s are pretty close in price to bars although I’ve never actually compared the two. I imagine bars are a bit cheaper tho. Plus there’s the possibility of the numismatic side (gold coins) could go up in value depending on coin, date, mm, etc. I listen to you all here very closely, I’ve learned a great deal from MNB & believe it or not, I hate to… Read more »

John Q. Coinage

For pure gold, US Eagle top notch, others I’d always advise a sovereign gold issue, not bars, medals, etc., some have lower premiums, Canadian Maple always a favorite.

John Q. Coinage

AKB slabbed 63 $10 Libs and $20 Libs 63+ always give a little premium kick. For just myself I’ve tried for Ms67 common date $2 1/2 Libs for $2,500ish. The premiums on Pre33 have really risen of late….duhhhj

Rick

E1 @ YouTube, Thanks, good stuff. I’ve been following Daniel as well and I try to catch his vids too. He’s so seemingly honest, likable, and knowledgeable. If I lived 200 miles from him I would visit his shop occasionally. That first Walker looked alot like your ’43-D? And perhaps it needed a dip? I will admit I favor the + grades for that eye appeal & potential..The Green CAC sticker I go for as well(all -33 Ag/Au if possible).

Rick, I still have 23 – 2021 Peace Dollars at PCGS. I always do PCGS First Strike Flag Label if they’re First Strike eligible. I actually really like the Flag Label. I prefer PCGS as my go to grading service and frankly, I can’t stand PCGS’s regular blue label! It’s the most boring label, blah! The Flag Label has always looked nice to me. I prefer PCGS graded coins as they usually carry a higher price and I love the flag label, two reasons for me, it’s NOT cause I buy labels at all, I just like the flag label.… Read more »

Oh, yeah, forgot to mention, I recall from MNB, you mentioning trying to contact and get the seller to remove the coin you purchased, from their registry? The experiences you and AKBob have been relaying about recent grading interactions and such, have been interesting, at least to me: BT, AKBob did you ever manage to get full resolution, regarding the number of Peace dollars you sent to PCGS? And also about what was or “wasn’t” sealed. Sorry if I missed those posts if you’ve already updated us.

AKBob

Yes, it was resolved, I thot I had 24 Peace Dollars but they said 23. I bought 7 sealed/unopened 2021 Peace Dollars with 3 in each box. I sent in 8 all together, one I bought directly from the mint due to HHL. The 7 I bought off EBay, evidently, one package/box only had 2 in it and PCGS said that particular box had been opened, it was supposed to have 3 in it and sealed/unopened. So the Seller basically ripped me off, opened the box, removed one coin and then tried to reseal it up hoping no one would… Read more »

While I’m not a Registry member of PCGS, nor NGC I will look into it at the source–NGC..You would think that the seller would do it on his own, not to mention after my request and out of good faith? I’ll hit him up again, then take the next step.

  • 53.7% fewer Lincoln cents,

fantastic news! now just stop making the other 46.3%, and we’ll be good.

there are about 400 billion lincoln cents made just since 1980. that really should be enough, that’s more than 100 for each and every american.

Oops the 64D was a 46D
Dyslexia strikes again:—
Regarding slabbing – any gold I buy that doesn’t come directly from the mint MUST be PCGS or NGC slabbed. I’m just not willing to take the chance of getting a Chinese knockoff.
Also had the experience of a dealer trying to offload a trove of 1800s gold coinage he said was “at least MS64. I agreed to buy AFTER he submitted to PCGS with me paying for grading. He immediately refused the deal.
In the words of a former President,”Trust, but verify!”

Sharks2th informative and excellent post! DaveSWFL said: “Regarding slabbing – any gold I buy that doesn’t come directly from the mint MUST be PCGS or NGC slabbed.

PCGS and NGC holders/slabs, have both been knocked off and have information regarding such on their websites.
