Information about mint: Gold Reef City Mint

Gold Reef City Mint (1976 - present)

Gold Reef City Mint is one of two privately owned mints in South Africa that have minted legal tender coins - on behalf, under license and under the supervision, of the South African Mint. Gold Reef City Mint has manufactured legal tender coins and medallions for South Africa, Swaziland, Namibia, Zambia, Mozambique and Suriname.

Founded as “Post Office Coins and Stamps” in 1976, the company changed to “Gold Reef City Coins and Stamps” in 1986, and two years later took over “Gold Reef City Mint” from the “mother company”, The South African Mint Company (Pty) Ltd. Initially, purely retail coin dealers, Gold Reef City Mint expanded into the manufacture of coins and related items. Its name is derived from the Gold Reef City gold mine, which is now a theme park in Johannesburg.

Originally a branch of the South African Mint Company, Gold Reef City Mint now operates as an independent private concern but is still fortunate to enjoy the support and cooperation of the national mint. In 2009 the company moved to the Rand Refinery Complex in Germiston.

The company manufactures a variety of coins, medals, corporate gifts, badges, key rings, medallions and trophies. The infrastructure and equipment is well established and enables Gold Reef City Mint to manufacture a vast range of products in a variety of base and precious metals. Gold, silver, and platinum are presently their main focus and speciality.
