Austria’s Muenze Oesterreich AG mint is now operating 24 hours a day to keep up with consumer demand. The mint has hired new works and added a third 8 hour shift. Mints around the world are manufacturing as fast as they can to keep up with demand as consumers take advantage of last year’s 28% price drop.
