ARTICLE ON MINT DIRECTOR HENRIETTA FORE

   Speaking of the Mint, USA Today published a nice
   article on Wednesday, September 17th about U.S. Mint
   Director Henrietta Holsman Fore.

   "In the last 1 years, she has reduced the time it takes for
   a coin to be produced - from the time the raw material
   comes in until the final product is shipped - to 62 days,
   down 80% from April 2002.

   The Mint in her tenure has cut coin production costs by 20%,
   and the agency has continued to make money, returning more
   than $1 billion to the U.S. Treasury last fiscal year."

   "As a child growing up in Santa Barbara, Calif., Fore collected
   coins. Her collection started with coins her mother brought
   back from trips around the world."

   "Fore says she came to the Mint with a "businesslike approach."
   Once on the job, Fore quickly realized the agency's processes
   could be drastically streamlined, she recalled while sitting in her
   large, corner office in downtown Washington, sporting gold
   coin earrings."
