Major Government Mints
Around the World
Although it's true that American coin collectors mainly focus the hobby on U.S. Mint products (whether historical or modern), the U.S. Mint is far from the only major mint around the world that strikes gold and silver bullion coins. While it is on the cutting edge of minting techniques today, the U.S. Mint even owes its early existence in the 1800s to the expertise of French and British coiners. Today, this same spirit of sharing knowledge about minting is strong throughout the world, with the Royal Canadian Mint, Perth Mint, New Zealand Mint, and other government mints continuing to strike coins for smaller countries.
