Mint Directors Association & International Mint Directors Network

About the MDA and IMDN

The Mint Directors Association (MDA) was established in June 2022 and formally incorporated in October 2023. The broader industry now exchanges information and ideas as the International Mint Directors Network (IMDN), which was previously the Mint Directors Conference (MDC).

The original MDC was founded in 1962 by the directors of 10 Western European mints: Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
