Site help

This is the website of the Royal Mint Museum. There is a link in the navigation at the top of the page to "Visit" which takes you to the Royal Mint's main corporate website.

This site has been designed to be as accessible as possible. There are certain features to assist and enhance your visit. Some of these features are outlined below.

Navigating through the website

The website home page is the best place to begin, here you will find graphic links to featured content.

The main navigation menu appear at the top of every page. To return to the home page click on the Royal Mint Museum logo in the top left corner of the page.

Within each section the "Also in This Section" menu on the right of the page lists key pages within that part of the website. The "breadcrumb trail" at the top of each page shows you where you are in the section and helps you to navigate back to a page visited previously.

You can also use the sitemap link at the bottom of each page to look for a specific page, or use the search function at the top right of any page to look for a word or phrase.


If the size of the text is too small or too big your internet browser should let you change these settings. This is usually in the View menu.

Enlarging images

Some images in this website can be viewed as enlargements. These are indicated by a gold symbol at the bottom right of the image, of a magnifying glass containing a + symbol. Clicking on these images will open a larger image as an overlay, which can be closed by clicking on the x symbol top right.

Some pages include image galleries which offer larger display of a series of images. Where this is indicated, click on any square thumbnail image to see that image pop-out and appear in full. Scrolling through image galleries is easy. Move your mouse over the image to reveal arrow buttons on the left and right edge of the image. Click these arrow buttons to see the previous or next image in the gallery, or the x button top right to close the gallery.
