Sources of Data[edit]

The source of the data from 1890-2003 are US government-released facts published in the Red Book by R.S. Yeoman among others, and repeated on coinfacts.com. Info since 2004 can be easily found on the US Mint's website. I myself lack a copy of Redbook, but others who have copies have verified that the coinfacts.com data agrees with US Mint data. The sources I have used for this page are all clearly listed in the References section. - Deeplogic 19:03, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

For some reason, I can only see figures from 1999 on the first US mint page, figures for 50 state quarters on coinsheet, figures of pennies since 1970 on the .edu page, and I can't find any production figure on CoinFacts. Can someone paste the URL that will directly bring the readers there? Thanks --ChoChoPK (球球PK) (talk | contrib) 00:59, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
I used 24 different subpages of coinfacts.com for this page's data. It would be cumbersome to list them all on the article page, but I will link to them here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. Hope this helps! - Deeplogic 15:23, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

Sum of coins produced don't add up to the Total column[edit]

There are four years for which the "total coins" column is not the sum of the other columns: 2000, 1995, 1964, and 1957. There is a note about production in 1964, but please recheck the figures for the other three years. 149.173.6.110 17:50, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing out the errors. 1964 and 1995 have been updated. 1957 appears to balance just fine, and only the error for 2000 is uncorrected. - Deeplogic 15:44, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

It appears there are several other sum errors. I found 1903 to be off by 1,000,000; 1976 off by 3,000; 1992 off by 347,000; 2000 is still off by -6,538,000. --JPP355 15:53, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Move page[edit]

In retrospect, "United States Mint coin mintage figures" might have been a better article title. I nominate that this article be moved there. - Deeplogic 15:47, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Or perhaps "United States Mint annual production figures" - Deeplogic (talk) 16:03, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

20¢ coin[edit]

Shouldn't there be a column for the 20¢ coin? --WhiteDragon 15:33, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

and for that matter, the 3¢ coin? --WhiteDragon 15:36, 18 July 2007 (UTC)
or, just an "Other" column. --WhiteDragon 15:36, 18 July 2007 (UTC)
The 2cent, 3cent, half-disme, and 20cent coins all ceased production before 1890, the year this table begins. I deliberately chose 1890 to avoid any issues with obsolete denominations. The only non-modern coins minted 1890-2006 were the gold Eagle coins minted until 1933. I leave it as an open challenge to other wikipedians on how best to incorporate non-modern coins into this table. - Deeplogic 16:49, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Breakdown by mints[edit]

The nickel section used to list the breakdown of nickels by year and mint. It was taken out, and I assume, linked to this page. However, this page is virtually worthless in that it doesn't show how much each mint produced. It should be included here. Or, is it listed someplace else and I just am not smart enough to see the link? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.212.89.240 (talk) 17:41, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Mintage figures by mintmark should be on that particular coin's page (example: Lincoln cents). - Deeplogic (talk) 16:03, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

total coins section[edit]

i think there shood b a total coins section like total pennies, nickels, dines etc. minted IN ALL cents 1890--Jgsho (talk) 22:20, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

update[edit]

the page needs 2 b updated with the coins of 2011.69.230.55.16 (talk) 03:26, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
