The Royal Mint Museum will be running digital education sessions for schools remotely from September 2020. If you would like more information about these sessions, please contact us.

Royal Mint Experience

Opened in 2016, this purpose-built visitor attraction, based on the Royal Mint site in Llantrisant South Wales, comprises a guided tour of the circulating coin factory where you can see thousands of freshly minted coins tumble from coining presses and have the opportunity to ‘strike your own coin’.



 

The large free-flow exhibition area where visitors can explore 1,100 years of the Royal Mint’s history through a mixture of Museum objects and interactive displays, allows you access to the Museum’s collection on an unprecedented scale. The display of star objects, such as the Olympic and Paralympic medals from the London 2012 Games as well as incredible rarities such as the 1933 penny and a gold sovereign of Edward VIII, are a must-see.
