As part of our anniversary celebration, the Royal Mint Museum is hosting a short-story competition open to all year five and year six primary school pupils in Wales.
Pupils are asked to write a short-story of no more than 500 words inspired by Decimal Day in 1971 and the change to decimal money. Closing date for entries is 11th December and stories can be submitted digitally or posted to the Royal Mint Museum.
The winner will be selected by guest judge and celebrated children’s author, Eloise Williams and illustrated by guest artist Rebecca Green. Prizes will be awarded to the winning author and to their school.
