Casa de Moneda de Mexico - The First Mint in America

Casa de Moneda de Mexico was established in 1935, making it the First Mint in America. For more then 462 years, it has developed worldwide prestige and good name through its high quality coinages, the fidelity of its alloys, its advanced technology and the artistic excellence of its designs. Two are the cardinal slopes detached from the rich history of the Mexican Mint: on one hand, its character as an institutional organization in charge of providing the country with its own currency, and conceding it as having mayor fluency to an economic movement whose growth throughout time has not stopped; on the other hand, its renewed artistic contribution, its capacity to transform the mineral entrails of the land into prodigious pieces of gold, silver, copper, and bronze, that constitute an invaluable testimony, not only from a particular history of a nation, but from the development of a civilization.

Casa de Moneda de Mexico satisfies the demand for legal tender, coins, coin blanks and commemorative medals for Mexico, as well as for countries on the five continents, struck in industrial an precious metals in different alloys and finishes. This mint has two industrial plants, one in Mexico City and the other in San Luis Potosi. Today, Casa de Moneda de Mexico finds itself among the most important mints of the world and has recently obtained the Quality Assurance International Certificate ISO 9001.
