Samlerhuset is today the sole owner of the Mint of Norway, which is that country´s second-longest established manufacturer, founded in 1686.
In 2003, the Central Bank of Norway sold a 50 % stake in the mint to the Samlerhuset Group, while the remaining 50 % stake was acquired by the Mint of Finland. In 2015 Samlerhuset bought Mint of Finland’s shares in the company and now owns it in its entirety.
The Mint of Norway produces all legal tender coinage for Norway and for several other nations. Our fine heritage in engraving and striking has also brought other prestigious projects to the Mint, and we are entrusted with the striking of the Nobel Peace Prize medal in gold.
The Samlerhuset Group is one of a handful of privately owned companies around the world entrusted to strike circulating legal tender coinage.
