Production was kicked up a notch in April at the U.S. Mint.
Output rose to 1,108,550,000 coins. That’s up 175.99 million coins from the March monthly pace.
The increase was due to jumps in cent, nickel and dime production.
Quarters and Presidential dollars saw lower totals in April.
The Denver Mint struck 1.8 million half dollars in April. These were the first of this denomination to be struck there this year.
Overall dime output so far this year leads nickels by almost 2-1.
At the current rate, the Mint is on pace to strike almost 13 billion coins this year.
