Mint Workshop

In the former horse stables in the west wing of the palace, historical demonstration workshops are now housed.

In the mint workshop there are tools such as drafting equipment, punches and screw presses, on which the work steps for creating a medal made of fine pewter are explained. The metal is poured, rolled and punched into circular blanks, after which the embossing is carried out using a 5 t screw press. Every Monday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., the Numismatic Society Zschopau e.V. "can be seen minting in the workshop. The members also provide a free appraisal of coins and medals.
