The Central Mint is a subsidiary company of the Central Bank of the Republic of China (Taiwan). The major activities of the mint are minting and melting circulation and commemorative coins, and producing commemorative medals and other kind of casting products for government institutions and businesses in Taiwan.


The mint was originally established as Shanghai Mint in Shanghai in 1920. In 1928, it was renamed as Central Mint and became the subordinate of Ministry of Finance. Five years later in 1933, the company started its operation in minting. During the Second Sino-Japanese War, the company had to be relocated inland of Mainland China in which facilities were set up in Chengtu, Kweilin, Kunming, Lanchow and Wuchang. In 1946 after the National Revolutionary Army won the war against the Japanese, the company relocated back to Shanghai.

In 1949 after the end of Chinese Civil War, the company was relocated to Taiwan and facilities were set up in Taipei. It then became the subordinate of the Central Bank of the Republic of China (Taiwan). In 1976, the facility was relocated to Guishan Township in Taoyuan County until today.[1]
