Hungarian Mint
http://coins.hu/

The history of the Hungarian Mint is closely intertwined with the 1000-year traditions of Hungarian coinage, which first began with the minting of the silver denar under Hungary's first king, St. Stephen, in 1001.

In the middle of the 13th century, the monetary reforms of King Robert Charles of Anjou saw the establishment of several minting chambers, the most important of which was founded in Körmöcbánya (Kremnitz, now Kremnica in Slovakia) in 1328. This mint, the direct predecessor of today's Hungarian Mint, became world famous for the quantity and quality of the gold coins it produced.
After World War I, the Körmöcbánya mint was dismantled and transported to Budapest, where it was reestablished as the Hungarian Royal Mint in 1925.

Museum Victoria Collections: Establishment of Melbourne Mint, 1872
http://collections.museumvictoria.com.au/articles/3776

The discovery of gold in Victoria in 1851 occurred at a time when the colony used British Imperial coins. Prime among these coins was the gold sovereign, a coin of international repute whose gold content fixed the value of the pound. These gold coins were made at the Royal Mint in London - gold taken to the mint would be returned without charge in gold coins which were legal tender without limit. The gold being discovered in Australia could therefore be turned into money once it got to London. This was a problem for the diggers - they wanted to dig for more gold, not spend a year traveling to and from London by sailing ship.

http://collections.museumvictoria.com.au/articles/3768

The discovery of gold in the Australian colonies of New South Wales and Victoria in 1851 created the next challenge for the Royal Mint. Both colonies were operating with British coins including the gold sovereign. The gold that was being found had to be sent to the Royal Mint in London to be struck into sovereigns and then returned. This was expensive both for freight and insurance and took at least six months. Powerful lobbies in Sydney and Melbourne fought for the right to strike sovereigns locally and the colonial governments both sent this request to London.

In 1856 the Royal Mint, Sydney, ordered a special press that offered Australian medalists greater technical capacity than previously available. The Mint, however, did not have the ability to prepare dies from artwork, obtaining its coinage dies directly from London. The Mint's ability to even harden engraved dies was questionable.

The first major piece to be issued by the mint was struck in 1859: a commemorative medal awarded to those who attempted to rescue survivors of the Admella shipwreck near Portland in Victoria.

http://collections.museumvictoria.com.au/articles/3765

The Roman Empire had a mint in London from about AD 287 until about 337, but for most of the period of Roman control Britain was supplied with its coinage requirements from Europe. The end of Roman rule saw an end to the regular circulation of coins.

The establishment of the various Anglo-Saxon kingdoms saw a gradual return to coinage. As the kingdoms joined into one, so the coinage, which was almost solely of the silver penny, became uniform. In 928 King Aethelstan ordered that there would be a single coinage for all of England to be struck from a number of official mints, the largest of which was to be London. Even after the Norman Conquest in 1066 there were many mints producing the coins and many changes of design. Both of these matters were related to the profit that was made in turning bullion into coin.

The establishment of a branch of Her Majesty's Mint in Melbourne was under consideration for some years. Two requests were sent to the Imperial Parliament by both Houses of the Victorian Legislature, one in December 1859 and the other in May 1864. In September 1867 the Victorian Legislature passed an Act making permanent funding available for the proposed mint. In August 1869 Queen Victoria issued a Royal Proclamation declaring that gold coins made at the Melbourne Branch of the Royal Mint legal tender in all her dominions. The Melbourne Branch of the Royal Mint finally opened on 12 June 1872, 17 years after the Royal Mint had opened in Sydney. Like Sydney, Melbourne could not manufacture dies but it nevertheless was welcomed by Victorian medallists, who now had a choice of places where their work could be struck: the Mint or Stokes (then in partnership with Martin).

Suomen Rahapaja (Mint of Finland)
http://www.suomenrahapaja.fi/eng/

In December 1859 the Finnish Senate petitioned the Tsar for permission for the country’s own unit of currency noting that the rouble was too large a unit of currency for a poor country such as Finland. The advantages of a smaller unit of currency were understood in St Petersburg and the Senate was charged with examining the matter in greater detail. At a full session of the Senate on March 10th 1860 a decision was made to propose as a unit of currency the markka, which would be a quarter of the value of the rouble and which would be divided into 100 penni. Based on this proposal Tsar Alexander II gave his approval to the new unit of currency on April 4th 1860.

http://collections.museumvictoria.com.au/articles/2450

The San Francisco Mint was born out of the need for a Western Frontier Mint when in January of 1848, gold flakes were discovered at Sutter's Mill triggering one of the most important chapters in U.S. History the California Gold Rush!

Within a few years, the gold mines out West produced an abundance of gold bullion, gold nuggets, and gold dust. Yet, there was an acute shortage of circulating legal tender gold coins in the Wild West Frontier. To relieve the problem, Congress authorized the establishment of the San Francisco Mint, a branch US Mint in the California Territory, to strike the much needed gold coins and silver dollars.

Museum Victoria: Branch Mints of the Royal Mint
http://collections.museumvictoria.com.au/articles/3768

The discovery of gold in the Australian colonies of New South Wales and Victoria in 1851 created the next challenge for the Royal Mint. Both colonies were operating with British coins including the gold sovereign. The gold that was being found had to be sent to the Royal Mint in London to be struck into sovereigns and then returned. This was expensive both for freight and insurance and took at least six months. Powerful lobbies in Sydney and Melbourne fought for the right to strike sovereigns locally and the colonial governments both sent this request to London.

Today, the Mint's headquarters are in Washington D.C. which is not a coin producing facility. It operates mint facilities in Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco, and West Point, New York and a bullion depository at Fort Knox, Kentucky.

The Philadelphia Mint was created from the need to establish a national identity and the needs of commerce in the United States. This led the Founding Fathers of the United States to make an establishment of a continental national mint a main priority after the ratification of the Constitution of the United States.

The Coinage Act of 1792 was entered into law on April 2. It proclaimed the creation of the United States Mint. Philadelphia at that time was the nation's capital; therefore the first mint facility was built there. The Mint Act also instituted a decimal system based on a dollar unit; specified weights, metallic composition and fineness; and required each United States coin feature "an impression emblematic of liberty".

A mint is an industrial facility which manufactures coins that can be used in currency.

The history of mints correlates closely with the history of coins. In the beginning, hammered coinage or cast coinage were the chief means of coin minting, with resulting production runs numbering as little as the hundreds or thousands. In modern mints, coin dies are manufactured in large numbers and planchets are made into milled coins by the billions.

Soho Mint - Equipment
http://www.sohomint.info/mintequip.html

The Soho Mint existed in three incarnations. The first, from its establishment by Matthew Boulton in 1789, lasted about ten years. The principal characteristic of the initial Mint was a circular arrangement of presses, each ‘moved’ by a lever and escapement powered by a large circular wheel turned directly by a steam engine. This arrangement contained much of Boulton’s own design but, though it worked, it was extremely noisy, and unable to cope with the stresses of striking large coins such as the Monneron 5 sols and the Cartwheel pennies and tuppences. These caused continual damage to the Mint machinery, and stoppages of production, and it became obvious to Boulton that he could not hope to undertake the national coinages he was seeking with the Mint as it was.

A thoroughly modern web site to celebrate the achievements of Matthew Boulton who died more than two hundred years ago in August 1809. But a modern website is no anachronism; Matthew Boulton was at the leading edge of technology and innovation in his own time. So here, as a tribute to a great man, we will look at Matthew Boulton, and the Soho Mint; how Mr Boulton fitted into the great scheme of things, how the Mint was established and worked, and what it produced.
