Permission to reproduce an image for publication is contingent upon payment of the assigned fees. Payment is due upon receipt of the Invoice and Application for Permission to Publish.

Foreign payments must be made in the form of an International or U.S. Postal Money Order or a check in U.S. dollars written on a U.S. bank that is a member of the American Banking Association (ABA). Allow 2-4 weeks for processing. Large or complex orders for which new photography is required may take longer.


The Mint Museum does not own copyright for all works in the collection. The Mint Museum's charges do not include any copyright fees due to the artist or the artist’s estate. While the Museum Registration Department will assist the applicant with contact information, it is the responsibility of the applicant to obtain permission from the copyright owner or administrator.
