Mints

The U.S. Mint
Created by Congress on April 2, 1792, the United States Mint is the world's largest manufacturer of coins, medals, and coin-based consumer products.

Bureau of Engraving and Printing
The BEP is the largest producer of security documents in the United States. The BEP produces over 9 billion Federal Reserve notes each year. These notes are produced at facilities in Washington, D.C. and Ft. Worth, Texas. In addition, the BEP produces over 20 billion postage stamps. They have been the largest suppler of postage stamps to the U.S. Postal Service for over 100 years. They also produce miscellaneous security documents for other government agencies.

Pobjoy Mint Ltd.
A coin dealer, manufacturing gold, silver, bullion and commemorative collectible coins for various governments around the world including the Isle of Man and Gibraltar plus jewelry, promotional and gift items. The largest private mint in Europe.

Hoffman Mint
Hoffman Mint, the largest private mint in the United States, manufactures and sells tokens, medals, coins, key tags and nameplates.
Since Congress created the United States Mint on April 2, 1792, it has grown tremendously. The United States Mint receives more than $1 billion in annual revenues. As a self-funded agency, the United States Mint turns revenues beyond its operating expenses over to the General Fund of the Treasury.

The primary mission of the United States Mint is to produce an adequate volume of circulating coinage for the nation to conduct its trade and commerce. In recent history circulating coin production has varied between 11 billion and 20 billion coins annually.

The United States Mint operates six facilities across the United States with each facility performing unique functions. Current facilities are located in: Washington, DC; Philadelphia, PA; West Point, NY; Fort Knox, KY; Denver, CO; and San Francisco, CA.

 

The Royal Canadian Mint

On January 2, 1908 as an audience of dignitaries looked on, Governor General Earl Grey activated the press to strike a fifty-cent piece, the Dominion’s first domestically produced coin. A few moments later, the Countess Grey closed the ceremony by striking Canada’s first bronze cent.

The Ottawa branch of Britain’s Royal Mint was officially open for business.

In 1931 the heritage building on Sussex Drive, the surrounding land and the entire minting enterprise passed into Canadian hands, making the Mint a wholly Canadian institution.

 

Today the Royal Canadian Mint is a for-profit Crown Corporation with a mandate to deliver a fair return on investment to its sole shareholder, the Government of Canada.

Coins for the world
The Mint produces all of Canada’s circulation coins as well as coinage for other nations. For its domestic and international clients, the Royal Canadian Mint designs and manufactures collector coins; gold and silver bullion coins; customized medals, tokens and trade dollars; fine watches, jewelry and gifts. The Mint also provides refinery and assay services to customers around the world.

 

The Royal Mint – England

The Royal Mint is a department of government and its primary responsibility remains the provision of the United Kingdom coinage. Its reputation, however, extends beyond this and internationally it has a reputation for making some fascinating coins for over 100 countries

 

The history of the Royal Mint itself stretches back over 1100 years. There is an unbroken link from the scattered workshops of the moneyers of Anglo-Saxon London to a single mint within the Tower of London, from a purpose-built premises at Tower Hill to the huge modern coining plant in South Wales.

In April 1975 the Mint was established as a Government Trading Fund, operationally very similar to a government-owned company. For many years over half its sales were shipped overseas and, in recognition, the Queen’s Award for Export Achievement was awarded on four separate occasions. In April 1990 the Royal Mint became an Executive Agency providing it with greater management freedom to develop its business further. Indeed the British Royal Mint has maintained its position as the world’s leading exporting Mint.

 

The minting of coins in Britain began in the first century BC, the earliest coins being crude imitations cast in moulds. This process gave way to striking coins using hand-held tools, the same technique by which coins would be struck for the next 1500 years. After the Roman Conquest the coinage of Iron Age Britain was brought to an end and thereafter large numbers of Roman coins circulated.

From the end of the third century AD some Roman coins were struck at a mint in London but for some 200 years after the Romans withdrew no coins appear to have been struck there. In 650AD, a London mint began operating, at first a little precariously but since the time of Alfred the Great (871-899) its history became continuous and increasingly important.

At the Royal Mint today, traditional skills are still used to create coins of the realm – skills that have been passed down from generation to generation.

 

The Royal Australian Mint

His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh, officially opened the Royal Australian Mint, Canberra, on Monday 22nd February 1965. The Mint was commissioned to produce Australia’s decimal coinage, which was to be introduced into circulation on 14th February 1966. The Royal Australian Mint holds a place in history as the first mint in Australia not to be a branch of the Royal Mint, London. Since opening in 1965 the Mint has produced over eleven billion circulating coins and has the capacity to produce over two million coins per day, or over six hundred million coins per year.
The Royal Australian Mint has struck coins for a number of South Pacific nations. Export coins were first struck in 1969 for New Zealand and, since then, coins have been produced for Papua New Guinea, Tonga, Western Samoa, Cook Islands, Fiji, Malaysia, Thailand, Nepal, Bangladesh, Israel and Tokelau.

The Mint also manufactures medals, medallions, seals and tokens for private and public sectors and sporting and tourism groups, both nationally and internationally. Examples of these are The Order of Australia, Third Pacific Conference Games Medallions, Sydney Monorail token and Conrad Jupiter’s Casino tokens.
