KOMSCO, a newly modernized Mint, has the capacity to produce about 1.7 billion circulation coins per year and has experience with the export of circulation coins and master punches.Based on our confidence, we have achieved continuous contracts with many countries, one of which has been our faithful customer for more than 10 years.

Volatile base metal prices and rising production costs have created global demand for an alternative to the conventional coin. KOMSCO has put great effort into identifying costeffective newmaterials with higher producibility and durability through its joint R&D with the Industry-University-Institute. For instance, since 2006, the Bank of Korea has saved millions of dollars peryear thanks to the new 10-won copper-clad aluminum coin. In addition, KOMSCO strives hard to improve its technology development, in order to obtain superior quality and better long-term performance.

KOMSCO has garnered a reputation for technological innovation and exquisite design. Our coins won prizes at the Coin Award Program in Mint Directors' Conference. These coins aren' tjust money. Beyond the face value, they are more than meets the eye. Furthermore, we have crafted a variety of medallions and pieces of cultural jewelry and have issued them for artistic,commemorative or souvenir purposes.
