    There was a lot of US Mint activity during the 90's.  I had an interesting conversation with a guy working for the Committee Chair on the House Banking (or whatever they call it now) Committee during that time about the huge output of minted coins.  There was a private enterprise model that I can't quite remember - but it was making people outside of government money somehow.  In any case, I haven't found any explanation for what it was meant for.  I would assume you know.
