The West Point Mint was established in 1937 in New York. The Mint first served as a storage facility for silver bullion. Today, in addition to serving as a storage facility, the West Point Mint also manufactures gold, silver, and platinum American Eagle Bullion and commemorative coins authorized by Congress.
As of 2019, the facility holds 22% of the U.S.’s gold reserves, which is around 54 million ounces of gold. The West Point Mint inscribes its coins with the “W” mint mark to indicate the minting facility.
