The Mint of Poland (Polish: Mennica Polska) is a private company (Mennica Polska S.A.) which is the only body permitted to manufacture (mint) coins and investment products in Poland. It is located in Warsaw. It is a Joint-stock company, with a listing on the Warsaw Stock Exchange since April 7, 1998, which makes it the only mint in the world that is publicly traded.[1]

History[edit]

On 10 February 1766, the mint reform was effected in Poland, the new mint organized in Warsaw at Bielanska Street coined the gold, silver and copper pieces, as well as the medals and orders.[2]

International partnerships[edit]

On February 5, 2009, at the World Money Fair in Berlin, a precedent-setting international partnership was announced. The Polish Mint (Mennica Polska) and the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) set up a program to grade the mint's new commemorative coins as well and establish a submission center at the mint in Warsaw, Poland. The new program will facilitate the submissions of Polish and Eastern European collectors and dealers for both vintage and modern world coins.[3]
