Internationally renowned for its know-how in precious metal processing and coin production, the Austrian Mint is a global player in the international minting industry and ranks among the world’s leading mints. As well as striking some of the world best-selling bullion coins and an impressive range of collector coins and medals, the mint supplies circulation coins and blanks to many countries worldwide. But first and foremost its duty is to produce the Republic of Austria’s euro circulation coins. With more than 800 years of coin-making experience, since 1988 the Austrian Mint has operated as a private company and is the sole manufacturer of coinage to the Austrian people. This is still done at a handsome home right in the centre of Vienna. The majestic building occupies one of the most prestigious locations in the Austrian capital and, historic though it may be, behind its classic façade lies a state-of-the-art production plant. Here, centuries of craftsmanship and tradition combine with some of the world’s leading coin-making technology, much of it developed and innovated by a very own numismatic experts. Owned in its entirety by the Austrian Central Bank, the Austrian Mint employs more than 200 people and produces some 450 million coins a year.
