WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of the Treasury today announced Alison Doone as the Acting Director of the U.S. Mint. Doone was previously Chief Administrative Officer at Mint. Doone will become Acting Director on October 1, as Director David J. Ryder departs the bureau in pursuit of new opportunities.
Alison Doone stated, “I’m thrilled to serve the U.S. Mint Acting Director to aid it continue its important works.” “I look forward working with the dedicated Mint employees across America and supporting our ongoing efforts in ensuring that we operate efficiently and produce quality products for the American public.
Wally Adeyemo, Deputy Secretary, said that Director Ryder was greatly appreciated for his dedication to the U.S. Mint. He also welcomed Alison to this position. “It is vital for the U.S. Mint’s critical operations to produce our coins amid increased demand and protect American assets to continue.” Alison’s leadership is my confidence in our ability to accomplish this mission.
Director David J. Ryder said, “It was an honour to serve as both the 34th and 39th Directors of the U.S. Mint.” The U.S. Mint was a shining example of American excellence during this pandemic. The Mint not only fulfilled its primary mission of producing circulating coins, but also generated near-record revenues by introducing highly popular numismatic items at a time when many of its peers worldwide had stopped operations. We are grateful to all the Mint employees for their tireless efforts and helping us meet our public demands, provide quality products and run efficiently. With Alison as Acting Director, I am confident that the Mint will continue to fulfill its mission.
