Coin Production Moves Up in October|
November 22, 2013
October monthly production at the U.S. Mint of cents through quarters was up across the board when compared to September monthly output totals.
Cent production rose to 674 million coins from 649.6 million during the month.
Nickels moved higher, reaching 131.28 million coins in October, up from 104.64 million in September.
Dime production stands at 222.5 million compared to 196.5 million the month before.
Quarters continue their quest to return to more normal levels of output, reaching 192.6 million coins compared to 148.6 million in September.
Output of quarters was seriously depressed by the financial crisis as state quarters saved in good times were returned to the banking system in bad times.
So far in calendar year 2013, coin production stands at 10.63 billion coins, up 27.68 percent from the October 2012 running total.
No half dollars, Native American dollars or Presidential dollars were struck in October.
