The following list identifies those cities around the globe that are or were home to publicly owned and/or overseen mints that produce coinage for the government. Only those mints producing coins since approximately 800 AD are included. If known, the years of operation are also listed. In some countries the mint is located at the Central Bank of that nation. As always, please feel free to pass along any corrections, suggestions, and/or additions.
