Moy’s Interest in Coin Collecting & the U.S. MintCoin collecting has been a long-time hobby of Moy, where his interest was first sparked when he worked the cash register of his parent’s Chinese-American restaurant in Waukesha, Wisconsin. His childhood dream was fulfilled when he was appointed the Director of the U.S. Mint, where he led one of the world’s largest manufactures of coins and medals. During his tenure as the 38th Director of the U.S. Mint, Moy made huge strides in the performance of the Mint where he grew revenue by over 200% and greatly expanded the bullion coin division of the U.S. Mint. Under his instruction, the U.S. Mint’s bullion coin production grew from a total revenue of $536 million to $2.8 billion over five years – an increase of over 422%. In addition, Moy also experimented with new coins after the successful release of 20th Anniversary Silver and Gold eagles –such as the Presidential Dollar and America is Beautiful quarters, which resulted in a huge surge of interest in rare coin collecting.
