Michael White of the United States Mint Office of Corporate Communications wrote to advise us that the Mint's 2015 Annual Report is

Established in 1792, the United States Mint (Mint) is the world’s largest coin manufacturer. Since Fiscal Year (FY) 1996, the Mint has
operated under the Public Enterprise Fund (PEF) (31 U.S.C. § 5136). The PEF enables the Mint to operate without an appropriation. We generate revenue
through the sale of circulating coins to the Federal Reserve Banks (FRB), numismatic products to the public, and bullion coins to authorized
purchasers. Revenue in excess of amounts required by the PEF is transferred to the United States Treasury General Fund.
The Mint operates six facilities and employs approximately 1,600 employees across the United States. Each facility performs unique
functions critical to our overall operations. Manufacturing facilities in Philadelphia and Denver produce coins of all denominations for
circulation. Both facilities also produce dies for striking coins. All sculpting and engraving of coin and medal designs is performed in
Philadelphia. Production of numismatic products, including bullion coins, is primarily performed at facilities in San Francisco and West
Point. All four production facilities produce commemorative coins as authorized by federal laws. The United States Bullion Depository at
Fort Knox stores and safeguards United States gold bullion reserves. Administrative and oversight functions are performed at our
Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
