The Austrian Mint, with over 800 years of history, is one of the world’s most important mints. It produces Euro coins for the Austrian Republic as well as coins in other currencies and a wide range of collector’s coins and medals, including the famous “Wiener Philharmoniker” in 24k gold or silver, the only European “bullion coin.” 100% controlled by the National Bank, the Mint has over 200 employees and produces about 450 million pieces per year.
Thanks to the Austrian Mint, Argor-Heraeus benefits from synergies in distribution channels and from well-established marketing and commercial know-how.
