Medallic portrait of William Wellesley Pole by Benedetto Pistrucci

People

Over the course of its long history, many thousands of people have worked for the Royal Mint. The Royal Mint Museum is interested in every single one of them, from the most famous, like Isaac Newton, to the seasonal workers, from engineers to artists, from scientists to security guards. The detail of their lives builds a picture of the organisation as a whole.

The Museum has gathered together an impressive archive of records and images. Help has been given to family historians but researchers have in turn been extremely generous in sharing the fruits of their own work and have provided invaluable insights and new sources of information.

Making this website an effective means through which that dialogue can continue to grow is very important. We are here to help you and, we hope, for you to help us.
