The Department of the Treasury is an executive US government agency that self-defines its principal function as maintaining a strong economy and creating economic and job opportunities by promoting the conditions that enable economic growth and stability at home and abroad, strengthening national security by combating threats and protecting the integrity of the financial system, and managing the US Government’s finances and resources effectively. The Treasury\'s mission highlights its role as “the steward of US economic and financial systems, and as an influential participant in the world economy”. The Treasury advises the president on economic and financial issues, encourages sustainable economic growth, and fosters improved governance in financial institutions. It operates and maintains systems that are critical to the US financial infrastructure, including the production of coin and currency, the disbursement of payments to the American public, revenue collection, and the borrowing of funds necessary to run the federal government. This latter role includes issuance of US Treasury securities, among the safest and most liquid instruments in the world
