About World Mint News Blog

World Mint News Blog was created by Michael Zielinski, the writer of the original Mint News Blog, which covered only US Mint coins and numismatic products. Both sites, as well as their sister site, Coin Update, are now affiliated with Whitman Publishing, LLC.

The creation of a site dedicated to world coins was done in response to an increasing amount of collector interest in the area. The goal of the site is to highlight and provide information on some of the recent innovative and exciting offerings from other mints around the world.

Whitman social-media editor Diana Plattner currently manages the site; please direct inquiries regarding advertising or submissions to coinupdate@whitman.com.
