Ep. 4: Does it Make “Cents” to Trust Our Money?

Listen in, if you use coins, collect coins, or need a little change in your routine. Every year, the U.S. Mint produces and distributes billions of coins across the United States. But, making and circulating money is just one part of a complex cycle that we all trust, when it comes to our economy. The U.S. Mint relies on, and puts trust in, myriad other technologies to support the ecosystem of coins: from secure supply chains to monetary policy, data exchanges, banks, aggregators, and retailers. In this episode, we mix in a little James Bond lore, Fort Knox history, as well as numismatics, and the business of making money.
