Why not let everybody comment with mints and make a list in the first post of this topic? As far as I know such list does not exist. I assume with 'mint' you mean a company that has minted legal tender. Because there are also companies that only mint jetons and medals and these can also be seen as mints.

Anyway here are the first 2:

Mint of Sweden
European Central Mint

In October 2014, it was announced by the Danish Central Bank that coin and banknote production would cease by the Royal Danish Mint and the printing facilities at the Central Bank by the end of 2016 citing production costs and the anticipated decreasing level or demand of coins and banknotes. The Central Bank are making arrangements to tender out their production to private firms.
