Mint

A place where coins are manufactured. In general, the coins produced at a government-sponsored mint are legal tender, though private minted coins may have an intrinsic value due to their metal content. Before fiat money became common, many paper notes were exchangeable for a minted coin containing some specified level of gold or silver.

mint
