US Mint - This summer, the U.S. Mint introduced new resources for kids, parents, and teachers. The H.I.P. Pocket Change Kids Site is now the U.S. Mint Coin Classroom!

The U.S. Mint Coin Classroom provides engaging content about the Mint, coins, coin production, and collecting. The site offers ways for kids to have fun while learning through videos, informative graphics, and games. The Mint's education content, including lesson plans, now lives in the Resources section of the Coin Classroom.
New Content in the Coin Classroom

New Focus: An expanded introductory section and refined content focuses the Coin Classroom on the mission of the Mint and circulating coins. The content is now targeted to kids in kindergarten through fourth grade.

Improved Graphics: To support kids' understanding of key concepts like coin composition, finishes, and symbols, we've introduced more graphics and improved upon existing imagery throughout the Coin Classroom.

Life of a Coin: From design to retirement, this new section shows how the Mint creates and produces coins. Dive into an explanation of the design process, parts of a coin, and coin metal composition.

Updated Educational Resources: Adults can use this section to find lesson plans and at-home activities to teach kids math using coins. There are also resources that teach history and the work of the Mint.

The U.S. Mint Coin Classroom still includes the Mint's free online games such as Coin Stamper, Counting With Coins, and Gold Rush. Some games teach counting, probability, and other math skills. Other games focus on sharing information about coin programs and the Mint in fun and engaging ways. In the future, the games will be tailored to the new U.S. Mint Coin Classroom audience and content.

That's really cool. Glad to see the U. S. Mint reaching out to educate our youth and possibly instill an interest that may lead to future collectors. If no one comes up behind us to collect I would imagine collectible coins would become worthless. "They're only worth what someone is willing to pay."
