United States Mint Circulating Coinage Production Report – January 2024

The United States Mint has released its Circulating Coin Production Report for January 2024. The report shows that the United States Mint produced 755.98 million coins in January, far lower than the number of coins produced in December 2023 or year-over-year from January last year.

According to the Mint’s report, 412.8 million Lincoln Cents were minted in January 2024. Of that total, 236.4 million were minted in Denver, and the remaining 176.4 million in Philadelphia. Meanwhile, the Jefferson Nickel had low production in the month, with just 28.56 million struck in January. 14.6 million Jefferson Nickels were minted in Denver and 13.92 were minted in Philadelphia.

Turning to the Roosevelt Dime, the Mint reports that total production in January was 120.4 million Dimes. The production figures break down to show that 88.4 million Dimes were minted in Denver and 32 million in Philadelphia.

According to the Mint’s circulation report, 187.4 million Washington Quarters were minted in January, with production almost even across the Denver Mint (93.4 million) and Philadelphia (94 million). The Mint’s circulation production report does not break down the type of Quarters it produced, as there will be five different designs as part of the American Womens Quarter Program. However, with it being January, it is safe to assume they were all the Rev. Dr. Pauli Murray Quarter.

The last circulating coin the Mint produced in January was the Kennedy Half Dollar. 5.7 million were minted, with 2.9 million pressed in Denver, and the remaining 2.8 million in Philadelphia.

Adding all of these production totals together, the Mint produced 755,980,000. This is far less than the 1.2 billion the Mint produced in January 2023.
