The Munttoren (Mint Tower) is a tower in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The Munttoren

The Munttoren (Mint Tower) and Muntplein (Mint Square) are located where the Amstel River and the Singel canal meet. The tower was originally part of the city gate forming the medieval city walls of Amsterdam. The gate built in around 1480 consisted of 2 towers and a guard house. Only the guard house and part of the western tower remained after the fire of 1618. The tower was rebuilt in 1620. The name of the tower derives from the fact that the guard house was used to mint coins in the 17th century. The present building was built in the Renaissance Revival style from 1885 to 1887.
