Related to Minting: minting money
The process of making coins. Minting generally consists of pressing pieces of metal with images. These images usually show the denomination of the coin, contain security features, and may say something about the country minting it. For example, the reigning monarch of the United Kingdom appears on all British coins. Coins generally are minted in small denominations, but this is not always the case.
