Film collection

Not unnaturally, perhaps, film-makers have always been keen to record footage of the Royal Mint in operation. In this section, which will grow over time, we intend to show some of the more interesting material that has been produced.

The five-minute film – An Empire’s Money Maker – was made in 1910 and may well be the earliest surviving footage of the Mint. As for the episode of Betjeman’s London, this 25-minute programme on the Mint was broadcast in 1967 and, as the name suggests, was presented by John Betjeman – not only a future poet laureate but also a long-standing member of the Royal Mint Advisory Committee.
