Over 1,600 years of minting excellence
Mint of Finland’s comprehensive range of services covers every stage of the minting process, from the planning of coinage systems to the finished product. The company’s strengths include the utilisation of advanced technology, innovation, quality, and reliable delivery methods.
Mint of Finland’s security expertise starts with a production environment with highly advanced security features. Items checked during testing include the dimensions, weight, electrical conductivity, and magnetic moment of the coins. Coins manufactured from layers of different metals can be distinguished from other coins by their electrical characteristics. High security storage and logistics solutions guarantee delivery reliability.
In product development and quality assurance, Mint of Finland utilises an internationally respected laboratory, which develops production methods in close co-operation with the production department. Mint of Finland’s circulation coin production is certified to the ISO 9001/2000 quality standard, and the company has long been involved in the international quality control of euro coins via its role in collaborative networks.
Mint of Finland is Europe’s leader in its field and is in the vanguard when it comes to bringing minting to an ever more advanced level. The latest proof of this is the Diamond Proof minting technology, which the company was the first in the world to implement. This patented system is based on a diamond coated stamp, i.e., the tool used for minting. The exceptionally glossy surface produced with this unique technology is clearly superior to that of BU- or Proof-quality coins.
