SUMMARY: Under the authority of 31 U.S.C. 5120, the United States Mint 
established a program by which people and businesses could exchange 
bent and partial coins for reimbursement. Fused or mixed coins cannot 
be redeemed by the United States Mint.

program for a period of six months to assess the security of the

the program, evaluating risks, and identifying potential remedial 
measures. Additionally, the United States Mint has engaged the services 
of an independent contractor to assist us in these efforts. However, 
due to recent litigation involving the exchange program and more time

suspension of its redemption of bent and partial coins for an 
additional period of six months.
