The world’s biggest fair for modern coinage has thus honoured the innovative power of this 127-year-old company, which continues to meet the challenges of the modern coin industry. The laudation specifically mentioned the newest innovation of Sack & Kiesselbach, the TMA-350, a table medal automat. It enables mints to emboss very small batches of coins or medals in the minting quality “proof” – extremely popular by collectors – without having to waste a lot of time while changing format and tooling when switching the denomination minted. The machine thus takes account of the trend that customers prefer to buy high-quality commemorative coins and medals with very small mintage.

Sack & Kiesselbach is especially proud of the fact that the company works with an exemplary collaboration between generations in order to use the existing experience to create innovations. Consequently, Albert Beck, the founder and honorary president of the World Money Fair did not just ask the executive partner and president Claus Günther Knorr to the stage, but also the oldest and youngest representative of the engineering-team which created the TMA-350: Wolfgang Schmitz, shareholder at Sack & Kiesselbach, and Markus Schlein, who has been working as authorised manager for Sack & Kiesselbach since 2016. There is an age difference of more than 35 years between these two. And yet they work together perfectly to condition the long-established German company fit for the future.
