Periodical Summary

Mint Director Samuel Moore's report for the year 1825. The same text appears in the American State Papers, finance (class 3), volume 5, report no. 746.

Paul Hybert summary: "A report from mint director Moore to President Adams, who relayed it to Congress. The amount of gold bullion sourced from North Carolina, at just under $17,000 worth, is more than in any prior year. Although the value of minted coins is less than in the prior year, the number of minted gold and silver coins exceeds that from any year; this is partly due to the availability of less silver bullion, and the decision to produce more silver coins of a small denomination."
