Should he be confirmed as the 39th director of the United States Mint, David J. Ryder said among his top priorities would be combating sophisticated, high-quality counterfeiting of United States
Ryder's remark came in response to a question posed by Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., during Ryder's Oct. 24 nomination hearing before the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee.
Tillis asked Ryder what he believed the future of coins is over the next 20 to 30 years. Ryder responded he didn’t feel coins were going away any time soon, but the Mint has to respond to
technology challenges and how they apply to coins and where coins are used in commerce.
Ryder has spent the past 25 years in the private sector working on anti-counterfeiting and security measures involving coins and paper money since leaving the government after a 14-month stint as
the 34th Mint director.
