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.

Mint Director Elias Boudinot's report on gold and silver production. This appears to be a contemporary printing, the same text is also found in the American State Papers, class 3 (finance), volume 1, report no. 118. Boudinot's annual report for this year was issued separately, on February 5, 1798.
Paul Hybert summary: "A report from the mint Director, responding to an order from the House, stating the quantities of silver and gold coins produced since the report of about a year earlier. The individual deposits of silver and gold are listed by date, and give the depostor name, bullion weight, value, and type of deposited items. The mint works with local banks to receive deposits that are small enough to process quickly."
