U.S. Mint Reports
Primarily consisting of the Mint Director's annual report, this series contains information often found nowhere else, revealing internal workings of the Mint and copious statistical data. In addition to the annual reports, this series includes other reports as issued, for example, results of assay tests of foreign gold and silver coins. Beginning in 2010, the biennial report on coinage production cost and cost saving alternatives is included in this series.
Note: Reports are categorized by year published rather than year covered. In some cases, the annual report for a given year was not published until the following year.

U.S. Mint Report (1795)
Reports from the Mint Directors (Henry Wm. De Saussure and Elias Boudinot) for 1795. Extracted from the American State Papers, class 3 (Finance), volume 1, nos. 84 and 85.
Paul Hybert summary: "The Secretary of State, Thomas Pickering, relays reports from two mint Directors. The fineness of the silver coinage is not as authorized by Congress. Coinage of silver and gold is halted due to the transition between Directors and the death of the assayer."
