Mint of Finland wins contract in Colombia

Mint of Finland will mint circulation coins for Colombia

The Central Bank of Colombia has ordered two-hundred peso and one-thousand peso coins from Mint of Finland. Mint of Finland will mint 156 million two-hundred peso coins and 92 million one-thousand peso coins to Colombia. The coins will be delivered in the course of 2017.

The recent order is a follow-up to previous cooperation between Mint of Finland and the Central Bank of Colombia. Mint of Finland also minted one-thousand peso coins for Colombia in 2015 and 2016.

“We are very pleased with the continuation of our cooperation with the Central Bank of Colombia. Mint of Finland’s principal competitive advantages are its flexible and responsible operating method and the ability to meet the individual needs of each customer. The Colombian contract consolidates our position in South America”, says CEO Jonne Hankimaa of Mint of Finland.

In November 2016, the company announced a two-year deal with the Central Bank of Bolivia for the delivery of 88 million five-boliviano coins (Bs5).

Mint of Finland Group operates in three business areas: blanks, circulation coins and collector coins. The Group operates in Finland, Germany and Spain and delivers coin blanks and circulation coins everywhere in the world. The company is owned by the Republic of Finland.
