The Mexican Mint is one of the worlds oldest operating facilities, and by far the oldest in the Western Hemisphere. Opened in 1535 by Spanish conquistadors, the mint once handled production of Spanish currency for colonies throughout Central and South America, as well as the South Pacific. Today it is the official sovereign mint of Mexico, controlled by the federal government and overseen by Banco de Mexico.
