As one of the oldest continuously operating organisations in Britain, the Royal Mint is very proud of its history. In a very practical sense the history of the Royal Mint and the traditions of the British coinage are important elements in the message underpinning the sale and marketing of modern commemorative coins.
Establishing Royal Mint Museum Services as a separate company has provided the Royal Mint with a professional means through which historical knowledge and advice on the British coinage can be made available. The work undertaken by the Services company for the Royal Mint and HM Treasury is noted below.
If you would like to submit a coin or medal for examination, please send it to Dr Kevin Clancy, Director of the Royal Mint Museum at the address given on the contact us page.
There is no charge for this service and the item, which will not be damaged in any way, will be returned to you in due course with a report of our findings.
