Certain coin production facilities around the world use a small chevron to identify where a coin has been minted. In the United States, circulation coinage is produced at two mint facilities- one in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and one in Denver, Colorado. While coins produced in Philadelphia either have no mint mark or a 'P', all coins produced in Denver carry a 'D' as a mint mark. Proof coins are produced in San Francisco and carry an 'S' mint mark. Most gold collector and commemorative coins are produced at the West Point facility, but rarely carry a mint mark.

A number of coin production facilities which produce coins for the Euro use a mint mark as well. Portugal, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Greece, Italy, Slovakia, Lithuania and Finland all produce coins with mint marks on them. Germany also produces coins that have mint marks, but since Germany has five mint facilities, their Euro coins have five mint marks.
