Survey results for the 50 State Coin program

Requested by aaronsw on Jan. 14, 2013 for the U.S. Mint of United States of America and fufilled on April 9, 2013

Status: Completed


From Aaron Swartz on Nov. 24, 2012:

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. In the U.S. Mint's report "50 State Quarters Report: 10 Years of Honoring Our Nation’s History and Heritage" (available at <http://www.usmint.gov/downloads/mint_programs/50sqReport.pdf>), it writes:

"The United States Mint conducted national surveys to track the 50 State Quarters Program through 2005. Survey results indicated steady growth in the number of adults collecting the state quarters. Conducted in May 2005, the last survey showed that 147 million adults continued to collect the 50 State Quarters."

I hereby request the following records: the results of these surveys.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Aaron Swartz
