New production figures, published Monday by the agency, also show mintages for the Homestead National Monument Quarter and the two Presidential $1 Coins commemorating Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower.
U.S. coining presses kicked out 1,277,960,000 in pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and dollars. January is typically a top coin production month with February sharply weaker, but this year the pace between the two slowed 17% compared to the 35.2% retreat through the same month-over-month period last year.
February ranks fourth busiest for the U.S. Mint through the last 12 months. The following table shows recent monthly coin production totals and how they compare to each other:
