A wide variety of coins and medals will be on hand.
WASHINGTON, May 13, 2022
/PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The United States Mint (Mint) is reopening
its Washington, D.C. Coin Store
(store) on May 16, 2022. The store
had been closed for more than two years to reduce the risk of Mint
employee exposure to COVID-19.
"Having customers coming back to the store is a great
opportunity for the Mint to interact with the numismatic
community," said Matt Holben,
Associate Director of Sales and Marketing. "Listening to our
customers' feedback, observing their reactions, and engaging in
conversation with customers lead to better product
Mr. Holben went on to describe the significance of having the
store open again after a long hiatus.
"The Coin Store in Washington,
D.C. serves a dynamic purpose," said Holben. "The location
attracts D.C. area visitors who may not be numismatists, thus
creating an opportunity to engage the customer and share why
American coinage is so important. The store is also a gathering
place for our existing customers to come in and enjoy our large
inventory of coins and medals."
The store will offer a wide variety of United States Mint coins
and medals for sale. The initial inventory will include limited
quantities of some 2021 American Eagle gold and silver coin
The store will have sidewalk signage outside of the entrance
letting customers know where to enter into the building.
The store is giving away "swag bags" to the first 50 people who
make a purchase.
The store is located at 801 9th Street Northwest, Washington, D.C. Store hours will be
10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through
Friday unless the day falls on a Federal holiday. Many forms
of payment are accepted, including Google Pay and Apple Pay. The
store also offers touchless chip readers during checkout.
