In January 2016, the Austrian Mint gave CoinWeek unprecedented access to the inner workings of their state-of-the art coining facility.

In this video, we share with you how gold planchets are made, we get to watch as a press operator replaces a pair of broken dies, we see the striking of Gold Vienna Philharmonic coins, and we get to see what the Austrian Mint’s inspection team sees when they look through the glass to make sure that each Gold Philharmonic coin packaged is absolutely perfect.

The Austrian Mint is a state-of-the art money factory and CoinWeek’s camera and microphones captured the unique sights and sounds of this amazing place.
