Private Mints

Private Mints are privately held companies that manufacture their own bullion rounds and bars / ingots.

Unlike a government mint, a private mint can produce anything but legal tender coins.

However, some governments, which were once government owned, are now privately held. 

These private mints produce legal tender for their country of origin, in addition to other bullion and coins for other countries. (ex: Perth Mint and Royal Canadian Mint)

Private Mints, started and held by individual companies, do not issue coins, the term "coin" is used for government issued legal tender.

Private Mints produce "rounds," which can be produced in any size, but rounds are not backed by a government like a coin.
(ex: Westminster Mint & Northwest Territorial Mint)

All of the privately held mints below produce their own Investment Grade Bullion.
