Casa de Moneda de Mexico - The First Mint in America
Casa de Moneda de Mexico was established in 1935, making it the First Mint in America. For
more then 462 years, it has developed worldwide prestige and good name through its high quality coinages, the
fidelity of its alloys, its advanced technology and the artistic excellence of its designs. Two are the cardinal
slopes detached from the rich history of the Mexican Mint: on one hand, its character as an institutional
organization in charge of providing the country with its own currency, and conceding it as having mayor fluency
to an economic movement whose growth throughout time has not stopped; on the other hand, its renewed artistic
contribution, its capacity to transform the mineral entrails of the land into prodigious pieces of gold, silver,
copper, and bronze, that constitute an invaluable testimony, not only from a particular history of a nation, but
from the development of a civilization.
Casa de Moneda de Mexico satisfies the demand for legal tender, coins, coin blanks and
commemorative medals for Mexico, as well as for countries on the five continents, struck in industrial an
precious metals in different alloys and finishes. This mint has two industrial plants, one in Mexico City and
the other in San Luis Potosi. Today, Casa de Moneda de Mexico finds itself among the most important mints of the
world and has recently obtained the Quality Assurance International Certificate ISO 9001.
