Vision and Mission


We bring a piece of Swiss minting tradition to the global world.


Swissmint produces coins as a traditional Swiss company. The focus here is on supplying the Swiss market with circulation coins for daily payment transactions as needed. At the same time, Swissmint produces collector and investment coins in precious and base metals. Every day, we meet the challenge of minting our coins to the highest standards in terms of quality, economic efficiency and sustainability. We gladly undertake these efforts so that our customers can trust that our coins are accepted as a secure means of payment and our collector coins retain their value over time. We are committed to using all of the required resources sparingly and in a targeted manner.
