Aquí encuentra las últimas noticias y notas de prensa sobre Mint of Costa Rica.
After the independence of Costa Rica in 1821, a mint was established and coins were minted, representing the country’ s independence and sovereignty for more than two centuries. In 1949 the mint was closed and the last coins were minted in Costa Rica. More than half a century later Mint of Costa Rica opens its doors and retracts the coin production to Costa Rica.
According to José Antonio Guilá, Secretary of the Board of Mint of Costa Rica, “Our Company is offering a service to the country producing coins according to the needs of the Central Bank of Costa Rica. We guarantee the highest flexibility not only regarding delivery times, but also concerning the individual needs of our customers. "
Mint of Costa Rica began operating with an investment plan of six years, which includes the consolidation of the facility, the implementation of logistics, security and machines, and finally the process of expanding to the Central American region, completing an investment of 10 million dollars.
According to Central Bank of Costa Rica "With the opening of Mint of Costa Rica, the Central Bank will have a personalized and faster service to obtain coins, which also prevents the importation of the product, and therefore promotes savings in the public expenditure."
