Director of the United States Mint
The Director of the United States Mint is the head of the United States Mint. The position is currently vacant. Since January 20, 2017, the senior career official at the Mint has been Acting Principal Deputy Director David Motl. 
The office of Director has existed since the creation of the Mint by the Coinage Act of 1792. Initially appointed serving at the pleasure of the President of the United States, the Coinage Act of 1873 specified a five-year term for Directors. The Director operates with general directions provided by the United States Secretary of the Treasury.
Since the resignation of Edmund C. Moy in 2011 the mint has been without an official director. Initially Matthew Rhett Jeppson was nominated by US President Barrack Obama to become the mint's 39th director given the temporary title of principal deputy director. However voting never came to pass by senate. Jeppson stepped down as principal deputy director in January 2017 being replaced by Acting Principal Deputy Director David Motl.
