Brand Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)



Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Q: Why are you doing this?
A: As we have built our company over three decades, we’ve had the privilege to create three very robust coin brands: New York Mint, First Federal Coin, and GovMint.com. Our mission has always been clear: to be the best source for the finest coins from the world’s most prestigious mints. With a powerful mission like that, we feel that one of the three brand names says it the very best: GovMint.com.

Q: What’s changing?
A: When it comes to our selection, service, and top quality, nothing is changing! We are simply combining all three of our current brands into GovMint.com. As we move forward under the single brand of GovMint.com, you will continue see many exciting new releases and opportunities from us. The only real change you will experience is the merging of the New York Mint and First Federal Coin brands into our one single brand of GovMint.com.

Q: Are you associated/affiliated with the U.S. Mint?
A: GovMint.com is an official distributor for more world mints than any other coin company. This allows us to bring our customers the widest array of coins and currency from all around the world. GovMint.com distributes worldwide exclusive coin releases from countries such as China, Australia, Great Britain, Canada, France, South Africa, and many others. In addition, we are the officially licensed distributor for the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) and the Smithsonian Institution®.

Many of our customers collect coins from the U.S. Mint, so we certainly provide these coins, but we proudly remain a private company which is not affiliated with the U.S. government in any way. We feel that this is a benefit to our customers. For example, we provide most past year U.S. Mint Set and Proof Set to collectors, while the U.S. Mint itself does not sell most of their past year issues to customers.

Q: Are your coins and products still the same?
A: Absolutely! Our customers know that they can find the 'best of the best' from us and that will never change. Through our catalogs, website, and sales offices, we literally bring you thousands of coins each year-from ancient treasures to the latest modern proof releases. Because we are an official distributor for such a wide range of world mints, many of the coins we bring to you are worldwide exclusives that you cannot secure anywhere else. That too will stay the same.

Q: How am I impacted?
A: The only real change you will experience is the merging of the New York Mint and First Federal Coin brands into our one single brand of GovMint.com. Catalogs and mailings you receive from us will bear the GovMint.com brand. When you visit us online, we think you'll find that the GovMint.com website is even more user-friendly and is filled with more helpful information, collecting insights from top experts, and the latest exciting releases from around the world.
