The Mint Accounts Book

Did you know that the Smithsonian’s National Numismatic Collection has the most comprehensive collection of historic American coins in the world? This world-class collection originates in part from the U.S. Mint’s Philadelphia coin cabinet, which was transferred to the Smithsonian in 1923. The Mint’s collection contained both U.S. coins and many coins and medals from other countries, which the Mint actively collected. This handwritten booklet known as the “Mint Accounts Book” records the Mint’s budgets and expenditures on coins and other numismatic specimens between 1856 and 1903. It is an unparalleled resource for historians and numismatists interested in tracing the Mint’s collecting activities in the nineteenth century. Please click "Read More" for more details; you can use this page as a guide for transcribing tables and columns in the book.
