The Austrian Mint was originally built in Vienna but had been moved several times throughout history. It had a brief stint at Price Eugene’s palace before finding its current location at Heumarkt, located in central Vienna, in the 19th century. Many other mints were established in Austria throughout history; however, in 1919, the Vienna Principal Mint became the last remaining mint when the Republic of Austria was formed that same year. Its name was changed in 1989 to “Munze Osterreich,” or “Austrian Mint,” when it became a subsidiary of the National Bank of Austria. With over 800 years of history and experience, it is easy to see why the Austrian Mint creates some of the world’s most beautiful coins today.
