The Royal Mint Experience
Rhondda Cynon Taff,
Closed 25th and 26th December and closing at 1pm on 24th and 31st December
The Royal Mint Experience is the only place in the world where you can watch the United Kingdom’s coins being made. Go behind the scenes to follow the journey of a coin from a blank to a bank in our 45-minute Guided Factory Experience.
Experience the sights and sounds of thousands of glistening new coins, hot off the presses, and get the chance to strike your very own coin.
Wander at your own pace through the Interactive Exhibition, discovering the incredible processes needed to make a coin. Come face to face with British monarchs over the past 1,000 years; test your knowledge of the coins that have been made for countries around the world; get up close to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic medals, and listen to the stories of those whose bravery has been rewarded with the UK’s gallantry and service medals.
