Default THE WASHINGTON MINT.....

If your question below is in reguards to
"PAPER MONEY",that would be through "The Bureau
Of Engraving and Printing". Paper money is
printed in the Washington DC location. Below is
there web site.

The United State Mint in Washington, DC operates as
the Nations Headquarters. It has never minted coins
in the history of the U.S. Mint, in Washington DC.

If you are meaning the retail website that sells coins and other assorted
collectibles at high prices, they changed their name last year to
Collectible America. Their website is: http://www.collectibleamerica.com

They were sued by the government and forced to change their name,
among other things. See the response by "Rob Dibbell" for the new
name.

He didn't give the reason....at least not on purpose....as he didn't
understand what the question was about.
