H.I.P. (History In your Pocket) is a new site from the US Mint that seeks to build an interest in coins as artifacts of history. Aimed at younger users and teachers, the site offers a section for each constituency. The Kids section provides information on starting a coin collection, a virtual tour of the mint, a time machine adventure, and several learning games. The Teachers's area contains lesson plans, a library, and a teachers's guide. Additional resources include an internal search engine.
