Originally known as Heaton's Mint or Ralph Heaton & Sons, the company started producing tokens and coins in Birmingham in 1850. It was a private enterprise, separated from, but in co-operation with the Royal Mint. In 1889, the name was changed to "The Mint, Birmingham, Limited". Between 1896 and 1898, the Mint struck all of Russia's copper coins - over 110,000,000 coins per year!
