Mint Mark

Anyone who has handled United States coinage has seen a mint mark. The small capital letter on the obverse ("heads" side) of a coin tells collectors, customers, and institutions where that coin was minted. The responsibility for striking our Nation’s coins is divided among mints in Denver, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and West Point.


Coins struck at the Denver Mint bear a small capital letter “D” on its obverse, or “heads,” side.


Designated by a small capital letter “P”, the United States Mint located in Philadelphia holds the distinction as the Nation’s first mint.

San Francisco

The capital letter “S” on the obverse, “heads,” side became a permanent fixture starting in 1968 on coins produced at the San Francisco facility.

West Point

Each coin produced by the West Point Mint is designated by a small, capital letter “W” on the obverse, or “heads,” side.
