TRI-CAP Improving Lives Since 1966 Consumers encouraged by U.S. Mint to recirculate spare change The U.S. Mint is asking for help from the public to recir- culate coins —pennies, nick- els, dimes and quarters. While there is an adequate supply of coins currently in the econo- my, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the pace of circu- lation, resulting in a nation- wide slowdown. The public can help recircu- late coins by: (1) paying with exact change in retail estab- lishments; (2) depositing coins in financial institutions or exchanging for currency; and (3) taking spare change to coin redemption kiosks avail- able at many banks, grocery stores and other retail estab- lishments. The slowdown of coin circulation was caused by COVID-19 restrictions that went into place starting in March. Establishments where coins typically enter society such as retail shops, bank lobbies, transit authorities and laundromats were tempo- rarily closed to traffic. During closures, coins that normally would have been received in change were not being circu- lated back into the system. Additionally during the ear- ly phases of COVID-19, the U.S. Mint reduced production to enhance social distancing and mitigate exposure. Since mid-June, however, the Mint has been operating at full ca- pacity and is now on track to produce 1.65 billion coins per month for the remainder of the year. By comparison, the Mint produced an average of 1 bil- lion coins per month in 2019. Newly minted coins account for less than 20 percent of coin orders, with 82 percent of or- ders filled with recirculated coins. At the start of 2020, more than 4 billion coins were recirculated each month; those numbers dropped to less than 2 billion beginning in April. In late June, the U.S. Treasury reported an estimate that the total value of coins in circulation is $47.8 billion. "There is adequate coin supply in the economy, but the slowed pace of circulation means that sufficient coins may not be readily available where needed," said Amber R. Van Til, president and CEO of the Indiana Bankers Associa- tion. "We encourage Hoosiers to help get coins back into cir- culation by using exact change to purchase items, bringing in rolled coins to their banks, or depositing coins in coin-cash- ing machines."

He said, "My time as the Agriculture and Natu- ral Resources/4-H Youth De- velopment Educator in Pike County has been one of the best experiences of my life. Pike County has a great com- munity with even better peo- ple and youth. "Getting to work with the community members, volun- teers and the 4-H youth was a wonderful experience. The community also accepted me and was willing to work with me, at times it felt that I was a Pike County native." "Some of my favorite mem- ories from my time in Pike County are when I got to inter- act with the 4-H youth through events and programs. Thurs- day, August 6 will be my last day as one of the Pike County educators. This is not an easy decision for me to make. My fi- ancée was offered a great job in North Carolina. I will keep in touch with Pike County and look forward to seeing how the program grows over the com- ing years. The 4-H program in Pike County is strong as any other program in Indiana or the nation and I am proud to say I worked with the volun- teers, parents and youth." Ackley added, "I would like to add that Brooke Goble is the Health and Human Sci- ences/4-H Youth Develop- ment Educator for Pike Coun- ty. In my absence, the office will still operate as normal, so please direct all questions to the office and someone will do their best to answer them."
