List of products by brand Bavarian State Mint

The Bavarian State Mint (Bayerisches Hauptmünzamt) is located in Munich, the capital the German federal state of Bavaria. It is currently one of several institutions in the eurozone permitted to produce euro coinage.

For more than 850 years, the Bavarian Mint has made the quality of its coins, seals and medals its first priority. In the past, the quality and rating of the coins were more dependent upon the value of the metal. Today, however, because of modernized production techniques, the quality of the coin determines the value of the coin. The requirements for quality are influenced by many different factors including the condition of the coin and the purity of the metals used. It is also crucial that the mint be able to prevent its coins from being counterfeited.

In order to maintain its level of quality and stay ahead of counterfeiters, the Bavarian Mint focuses heavily on new methods and technologies in production and quality control. The mint is able to be involved with the development of these processes by staying actively engaged with both suppliers and customers. Because of this system, the mint is at the intersection of the supplier’s capabilities and the wants of the customer. This flexibility has proved to be an asset to the mint, making them an ideal partner for anyone with a tall order. These conditions put the Bavarian Mint in an excellent position to secure a permanent place in the coin and medal production market, despite global competition.

The Bavarian State Mint is one of five German state mints, along with Berlin, Stuttgart, Karlsruhe and Hamburg. Currently, about 21 percent of all German euro coins in circulation are produced at the mint in Munich and are identifiable by the “D” mintmark.
