“We welcome the news that the U.S. Senate has confirmed President Trump’s nominee, David J. Ryder, as the 39th director of the United States Mint,” said Philip N. Diehl, chairman of the Industry Council for Tangible Assets.
“It’s hard to imagine a better-qualified appointee. David has served at the Mint before, he knows Washington well, and he brings to the job more than 20 years of experience in the anti-counterfeiting business. We need his leadership at the U.S. Mint as we confront the growing threat coin counterfeiting poses to the nation,” Diehl said.
Philip N. Diehl was the 35th Director of the U.S. Mint —ed.
