The Mint Lover's Trip - to the first Thaler and the modern Euro
A journey for all coin-lovers and numismatists: Visit Hall in Tirol, the Mint Town, and spend three days (two nights) on a journey of discovery through the Hall-Wattens holiday region. Aside from the world's first Thaler coin, spectacular coin presses and the world's biggest silver medallion - the Europe Thaler, the tradition-rich Hall Mint also greets you with its Stories exhibition on the stairway up the Mint Tower.
Once at the top, you will be rewarded by magnificent panoramic views of the largest Old City in western Austria, and the imposing landscapes of Tyrol.
Yet another highlight for collectors: As a special extra, all participants in the Mint Trip receive the highly sought-after 25 Euro 2016 commemorative "TIME" coin made of columbium and silver, and produced by the Austrian Mint. In 2015, the popular columbium series features the theme of "“Evolution”. In 2003, Hall in Tirol took center stage with the release of Austria's first columbium coin, already sold out well in advance. Nowadays, Austria's first columbium coin trades on the market for around 400 Euro.
In addition to the 2015 columbium commemorative coin, every guest can also press out their very own silver piece (999/1000) at Hall Mint, a great souvenir of the spindle press. Insights into the rich, ever-changing history of Hall in Tirol - a medieval town significantly influenced by its mint and by the salt trade - are afforded by a special guided tour through its secluded lanes and backstreets.
