The United States Mint was founded in 1792 and began issuing coins for the newly-found nation in that same year, with major production of circulation coins beginning in 1794. From 1848 to 1954, the US Mint issued a wide range of commemorative silver and gold coins for collectors.

The US Mint resumed commemorative coining in 1982 with a commemorative coin marking the 250th anniversary of the birth of George Washington, Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War and the first man to serve as President of the United States of America. The US Mint’s most popular modern gold commemorative denominations are $5 (USD) and $10 (USD). Each coin has a gold composition based on the historic US Eagle denomination, with 90% gold and 10% copper per coin.
