Information about mint: Swissmint

Swissmint (1853 - present)

Swissmint (ex Bern Mint, ex Federal Mint of Switzerland) is the official mint of the Swiss Confederation. Located in the Swiss capital city Bern, it is responsible for manufacturing Swiss franc coins, both of the currency and bullion variety. Apart from making coins for the government, Swissmint also manufactures medals and commemorative coins for private customers.

In the year 1853, the Federal Government of Switzerland took over the former mint of the Canton of Bern on a trial basis. The old Bernese mint was renamed the Federal Mint and, from 1890, became an official Federal institution.

Since 1998, the Official Mint of the Confederation operates as an independent business unit under the name Swissmint.
