When Coins Started in the United States?

The United States Congress enacted the nation's first coinage statute in 

1792. This implied that the United States Mint held formal authority over

the production of coinage intended for general usage. Among the men

who provided information and suggestions for the initial iterations of the

coins were Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. In actuality, the

Treasury Seal that was created has stayed mostly unchanged to this day.
