The mission of the Department of the Treasury is to formulate and recommend economic, fiscal and tax policies; serve as financial agent of the United States Government; enforce the law; protect the President and other officials; and manufacture coins and currency.

The Treasury Department was created by the act of September 2, 1789 (31 U.S. Code 301 and 301 note). Many subsequent acts have figured in the development of the Department, delegating new duties to its charge and establishing the numerous bureaus and divisions that now comprise the Treasury.
