Mining and Minting in Kremnica
author of photo:
The beginnings of mining date back to the 10th century when gold and silver were mined around the city. Later, in the 14th century, a mint was established in the so-called “Gold Kremnica” for the production of gold and silver coins. Gold Kremnica ducats and the so-called florins belonged to the most sought-aﬅer and valuable coins in Europe. The Kremnica Mint manufactures minting products that belong among the world’s best to this very day. If you are interested in exploring the history of mining and minting and attending an interesting trip through time, do not hesitate to visit the Mining Museum “Štôlňa Andrej”, Kremnica, the Museum of Coins and Medals in Kremnica and the exhibition in the Kremnica Mint.
