Key Stage 3 workshops
As part of our celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of decimalisation the Royal Mint Museum offered free online workshops for secondary school pupils. These workshops were held over Microsoft Teams and included a live question and answer session with a member of the Museum team. There were be a follow-up activities for students and support materials were provided for teachers.
Based around the intensive publicity campaigns that were necessary to inform the public about the changeover to decimal currency, the workshops were designed to be cross-curricular involving social history, art and design and maths.
We are currently running virtual visits and workshops for schools and community groups on the topic of the Platinum Jubilee and the history of the Royal Mint. Visit our Jubilee pages for more information.
The Royal Mint Museum has an outstanding collection of material relating to decimalisation.
