Frequently Asked Questions

Account and Registration

What's the difference between a guest and registered account? How do I edit or delete my account?

Registered users, have created a user account on the catalog.usmint.gov website. Guest users have not created an account.

Registered users are able to customize their shopping experience by pre-populating their address book, setting up payment information, and creating enrollment orders. Registered users can also view their order history and track the status of their orders.

Under “My Account” you can:

  • Show or update your personal information
  • Update Email Preferences
  • Manage your billing and shipping addresses
  • Manage credit cards
  • Create a Wish List
  • View and modify items on your list or invite friends
  • Check the status of your orders or see past orders
  • View Product Enrollments


Deleting your account does not remove you from our print mailing or email lists. To do this, call the Customer Service Center:

  • United States Customers: 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468)
  • Speech/Hearing Impaired Customers (TTY): 1-888-321-MINT (6468)

How can I receive product notification text messages?

Text alerts are currently only available to United States customers. For a full list of supported carriers, please review the “Text Messaging Services” section in our Terms of Use.

You can sign up for two types of text messages from the U.S. Mint:

1. Notifications about a particular product

On any Product Details Page, or from the Product Schedule, click the “Remind Me” button to be notified when a product goes on sale or a product comes off backorder.

When you click the “Remind Me” button, you can enter your email address to receive email notifications about the product or follow the directions to text the product’s SKU to the Mint and receive future text updates about the product.

Please note: the “Remind Me” button is only available for products that have not yet gone on sale and for products on backorder.

2. Notifications about all products

You can also request text message notifications when any new product is released. You can do this in three ways:

a. Text “JOIN” to 69776.

b. On the “Sign Up for Our Email List” page – by following the directions to text “JOIN” to the Mint.

c. If you have an account on the Mint website, you will find the same directions on the Communication Preferences page in your user profile.

d. Confirmation required: After you request text messages, you will receive a confirmation message at the mobile number you entered. You must reply to this message with “Y” to activate your subscription. If this verification is not made, you will not receive further text messages.

Is there a charge for text messages?

The U.S. Mint provides text messages free of charge. However, you should be aware of any fees your mobile service provider may charge for text messages.

How do I stop receiving messages or receive help with messages?

You can reply to any text message, or send a new message to 69776, with the following commands:

  • JOIN: to sign up for all Products & Promotions Updates text messages.
  • STOP: to stop receiving text messages.
  • HELP: to receive a text message with additional help information. 

Please note:

  • The JOIN request needs to be sent from the mobile number from which you wish to receive text messages. You must reply “Y” to confirm your text message opt-in, or no further messages will be sent.
  • The STOP request needs to be sent from the mobile number on which you want to stop receiving messages.
  • Only the words JOIN, STOP, HELP, and SKU numbers for Remind Me alerts are recognized and processed by the system. Messages containing additional text will not work.

Can I send a text message to the U.S. Mint?

The Mint’s text messaging service does not watch for inbound customer text messages. Only messages containing the keywords JOIN, STOP, HELP, and SKU numbers for Remind Me alerts are processed by the system. If you need to contact the U.S. Mint, please visit the Customer Service page on our website where you will find a number of ways to reach us.

Are there limits on the use of text messages?

Customers 18 years of age may request text messages from the U.S. Mint. Your participation is subject to any fees and limitations from your mobile service provider. For additional information, please see the “Text Messaging Services” section in our Terms of Use.
