The manufacture of metal coinage (both circulating and collector coins) is one of the most important production lines at the FNMT-RCM. As the direct successor of the former Madrid Mint, whose earliest historic references date back to the 15th century, the Minting Department is, of all the company's departments, the most deep-rooted in tradition. Responsible for the minting of coins for the Spanish Treasury, the FNMT-RCM also works for any country, company or organization who requests it.
The manufacturing process for circulating coins constitutes a perfect symbiosis between the centuries-old art of engraving, the minting process itself, and the most advanced industrial processes. Advanced with regard to technology and materials management, traceability, robotics and automation, the end purpose being to furnish the coins with the utmost quality and security.
