Around the World in 80 Coins

From Norway to New Zealand, from Bermuda to Brunei, coins have been struck at the Royal Mint for countries all over the world. For this interactive feature we have selected 80 of these coins – some particularly attractive, some unusual, some with a surprising story to tell. Spanning more than 200 years, and coming in all shapes, sizes and metals, these coins provide an intriguing perspective on the output of the largest exporting mint in the world.
