Town Mint - a medieval mint workshop is situated the lower part of the Town Hall tower.  It is a replica of a 14th century town  mint workshop which could be found in Dzierżoniów. One can mint an unforgettable souvenir for themselves - a copy of 1352 heller with the initials MCR (Moneta Civitas Rychbach) on the averse and the Lower Silesian eagle on the reverse. The privilege of minting coins was given to townspeople of the then Rychbach by Piast price Bolko II. Nowadays coins are minted on different occasions and replicas of other coins are made. Mint shows are also organized here when the visitors can take part in the process of minting coins - starting from flattening of a can, then cutting out and flattening of mint discs, and till minting the coin with a few-kilo-hammer.
