The Royal Mint is one of the UK’s great institutions and one of the world’s oldest organisations, with a history stretching back over 1,100 years.
Our primary function has always been to produce and distribute the coins for Britain, and every United Kingdom coin used today has been made at The Royal Mint in Llantrisant. But we don’t just make coins for the pockets of the British public, in a typical year we strike coins for as many as 60 different countries worldwide.
In addition we produce coins for collectors, precious metal coins for investors, gifts for special moments in life, and official medals and seals. Our commemorative collections include our flagship Britannia and Sovereign coins, celebrate British greats such as Beatrix Potter, and mark important occasions like Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday. All are created using state-of-the-art technology, coupled with skills and techniques passed down over many centuries.
