Change for Your Change?

Duration: 60 minutes with Q&A session
Presented by:  Jon J. Cameron, Director of the Office of Coin Studies, United States Mint

Congress has tasked the U.S. Mint with finding ways to produce coins in a more cost efficient manner. In this effort, the Mint recently announced that it is accepting public comments on the mandate to research alternative metallic content of coins. Changes in metallic content, shape, or size could call for anything from a simple recalibration in vending machines to the installation of new coin-accepting equipment, with an industry estimated cost that would range from $100-$500 per vending machine. With approximately seven million vending machines across the country, NAMA estimates the costs of such changes could amount to an industry-wide cost of $3.5 billion. Jon J. Cameron, Director of the Office of Coin Studies at the United States Mint will be presenting updates and the status of the Mint's research and development efforts regarding alternative metals for coin production. Director Cameron will also provide information on the comment period recently released in the Federal Register, the cash cycle and the future of cash. Don't miss this opportunity to hear directly from the Mint on this important and timely topic.

"I thought NAMA's webinar titled Making Cents of Route Driver Pay was informative, straight forward and relevant to many of the issues we are facing today, as it relates to Route Driver compensation. It was evident in the presentation and the Q & A, that one size doesn't fit all and a manager and/or employer has to be knowledgeable about the choices they make, or risk potential costly litigation. Despite my 25+ years in the industry, I was still able to pick up some great tips and direction from this session, which will assist me in future decisions in this critical area of our business."
