Summary An essential aspect of every country's government is its monetary system. The United States government planned the National Mint shortly after the Constitution was ratified, and the rest, as they say, is history. The U.S. Mint unifies the country through core values, which are present on each coin: E Pluribus Unum, or Out of many, one. Historical photographs and a graphic organizer allow students to learn about a crucial aspect of American government while making connections to the social studies curriculum.
