The U.S. Mint produces and mails an annual catalog, but customers may view and order available products at any time by going directly to the website. Along with registering for the print mailing list, shoppers can sign up for email notifications of product updates and other news items. If a dedicated numismatist purchases the same items every year, she can sign up for the mint's product enrollment program, which provides subscription purchases for each product release while enrolled.

The website of the U.S. Mint also has a wealth of information on the basics of coin collecting for adults and children, information on finding coin-collecting clubs, and pages devoted to the mint's history and its artists. Many purchase coins for financial as well as personal interests; either way, regularly updating coin values using resources such as Heritage Auctions' price guide for beginners can help owners keep track of a collection's worth. Those who seek to sell their coins or get professional assessment of their collections can go to the website of the Professional Coin Grading Service and search for an authorized dealer.
