FNMT (La Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre / The National Currency and Stamp Factory)
The Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre was created in 1893 from the merging of two age-old organisations, namely the Casa de la Moneda (The Mint) and the Fábrica del Sello (The Stamp Factory). These two entities, even though they were self-determining and under different managements, had been sharing a building in the Plaza de Colón since 1861. From that time forward, with security as the common thread, their scope of activity has not stopped expanding. The FNMT-RCM is a public company created with a mission of a distinctly public service nature. Nevertheless, it is open to collaboration with private enterprise in those areas that require a security component and a strict control over production.
