    Synonym of "Mint"

    Hi

    Can anyone please tell me the actual synonym of Mint ?
    I meant to say the place where currency is made..

    I could learn from someone that Mint actually means the place where coins are made but for currency ( printed on Paper) there is another word..

    I am not quite sure if there is another word to express the place where paper printed currency is made.

    Please advise

    Regards

    Newbie

    Re: Synonym of "Mint"

    In the US, paper money is made at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.

    I don't think there is a general English language term for this.

    DeLaRue, who make the paper, print money, etc, for over a hundred countries have a secure printing facility- they don't seem to use any special term:
