Overview

Making a Mint - Visit to the Royal Mint, Llantrisant, Cardiff

"Moneyers" operated in London from c650 with coins of Alfred the Great struck with the name London in the form of a monogram.CPD 2

The Royal Mint has evolved to become a sophisticated industrial concern, which operates today as a government company. The 1,100 years of its existence track the history of Britain through its wars and political upheavals, its social and economic progress, its technological and scientific advances. Its history is, in short, woven into that of Britain itself.

The Royal Mint Museum

The Royal Mint Museum has a collection of British coins of unparalleled importance. It sheds light not just on the coins as issued but also, through a unique collection of trial and experimental pieces, and artwork and equipment, on their design and manufacture.

The Museum celebrated its 200th Anniversary in February 2016, a few months later the Royal Mint Experience was completed, with a major feature being a large exhibition area featuring hundreds of objects from the Museum’s collection.
