Description

Established in the 1790-ies, Smith and Wright were makers of brass buttons for military uniforms. The company was absorbed into Firmins in the 1960-ies.

While not a mint, it has been quoted as makers of Sarawak coinage by some sources (like the web site of Museum Victoria, which holds the archives of the Melbourne branch of the Royal Mint). Most other sources though indicate that all Sarawak coinage was minted at the Heaton and Sons Mint in Birmingham, for which perhaps Smith and Wright acted as agents in this case.
