As typical, the cent accounted for more than half of overall circulating coin production. Across the two facilities, there were 770 million cents struck during the month. Year to date production across both facilities has now topped 5 billion pieces.
As a change from recent months, the dime was the next most produced denomination at 235.5 million pieces.
Remaining production for the month was rounded out by 191.2 million quarters and 134.64 million nickels.
The United Sates Mint did not produce any circulating quality half dollars or $1 coins during the month.
There are no updates to the chart indicating production by design for the America the Beautiful Quarters and Presidential $1 Coin Programs. The Mint had previously indicated the production totals for the first three quarter designs and all four Presidential Dollar designs. As mentioned in the past, these figures should be considered preliminary until the close of the year since the Mint reserves the right to restart production if warranted by demand.
