Burg Hasegg & Hall Mint Museum

Hall in Tirol

The historic small town of Hall has a rich minting heritage. Explore this beautiful town and see the mint that has the distinction of being the cradle of the modern day ‘Dollar’. Stepping south of the medieval town center is the Burg Hasegg, which has had a 300-year career as a mint for silver Thalers (coins, the root of the modern word ‘dollar’), and this history is unravelled in the Hall Mint Museum, displaying water-driven and hammer-striking techniques. The Mint Museum houses a number of coin presses used over the centuries and also showcases a number of coins minted over the centuries. The audio tour (voiced by ‘Franz’ a voice from the past) provides a great deal of information about the town’s minting history. Visitors can mint their own coin. The tour continues into the Mint Tower: A spiral staircase with 186 steps coils up to the 5th floor of the dodecagonal tower for far-reaching views over Hall and Inntal Valley.
