Join the Crown Society

Society dinner

The Mint Museum is a leading, innovative museum of international art and design committed to engaging and inspiring all members of our global community.

In pursuit of this mission, the museum has launched the Crown Society, an annual giving circle encompassing museum patrons contributing at leadership levels of $1,200 or more towards the Mint Annual Fund. This Society serves as one of the preeminent forces behind the museum’s newly revitalized vision to become one of the most relevant and revered art museums in the country.
