The video features a mix of animations and live action footage and makes learning the basics of U.S. circulating coin production fun and engaging. Targeting younger audiences, the video is also suitable for anyone interested in the general process of producing a circulating U.S. coin.
The United States Mint also offers free, downloadable lesson plans available to educators and youth organizations interested in learning about U.S. coins. The lessons are developed for grades K-12 and cover subjects such as social studies, art, science, math, and language arts.
“How Coins are Made…For Kids” will be promoted during National Coin Week, April 17-23.
