Local ducats and token coins
We strike local ducats for towns and munidipalities and manufacture commemorative tokens on special occasions
The business activity of every organization is accompanied by events and initiatives which are worthy of commemoration. Commemorative numismatic products, such as token coins, minted to commemorate various events, might be a one-of-a-kind souvenir of sentimental and collectible value. Token coins commemorate important moments and are effective tools helping promote both companies and local government organizations. This unique form of promotion gives customers a possibility to strike commemorative numismatic products by themselves. An original stand where everyone can mint token coins themselves will certainly make every picnic or incentive party even more attractive.
Local ducat – what does it mean?

Local ducats have long since become an important part of marketing campaigns implemented by numerous local governments in Poland. Thanks to highest craftsmanship and original designs, the local ducats enjoy great popularity among tourists, collectors and local residents.

/patriotism and education/
There are historic events that are still vivid in our memories and deserve special commemoration. In cooperation with the City of Gdańsk, the Mint of Poland produced local ducats called “Gdańsk Thalers”. With the mintage of 300,000 pcs, it was the biggest edition of local ducats ever launched!
/catch the moment/
Air Show is a cyclic event combining air shows with a presentation of military equipment, attracting countless crowds of great enthusiasts of aircrafts and – as it turned out – Local Ducats. And, because what is in the air just for a moment remains forever on the ducat, many guests decided to commemorate that moment and get their own ducat – a memory preserved in a little work of art.
