United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program


What's this?

A tea and coffee bar at the mint?

Au contraire: the U.S. Mint is "seeking artists to create U.S. coin and medal designs."

Inquire within.

Note, by the way, that the application deadline is September 15.

I happened on the website in the current (August 7 & 14) issue of the New Yorker, where it appears in one of those tiny ads stacked in columns alongside the outer edges of the back pages.

Don't be fooled by the size of those ads: they cost plenty.

When I inquired years ago it was over $2,000 for a one-time appearance.

Heck — I charge less than that.

But I digress.

You won't make a ton of money from the government — as it were — even you're chosen by the U.S. Mint to design a coin or a medal.

But the boost to your career — and the prices you'll be able to charge subsequently for your work — will be most delightful indeed.

No computer?

No problema — call 202-345-7727.
