Description

The Casa de Moneda de la República Argentina is the Argentine mint, controlled by the Argentine government and administratively subordinated to the Ministry of Economy. A mint was established in 1779, before Argentina became independent. Law 733 of 1875 ordered the creation of two mints, one in Buenos Aires and another in Salta; the Casa de Moneda in Buenos Aires was opened on 14 February 1881.

It produces legal tender coins and banknotes. It also produces medals and security prints (i.e., passports, subway tokens, postage stamps) that are used and issued by government-run service providers. The present currency printed is the Argentine peso, since 1992.
