Over the centuries the Royal Mint has made all United Kingdom coinage. It is known worldwide for the high quality of its coins, and a long tradition of craftsmanship, heritage and artistry.
At home the Royal Mint is a national treasure. Around the world it is recognised not only for its proud heritage but also for innovation that harnesses state-of-the-art technology to the service of the highest standard of minting. Together these attributes make the Royal Mint one of the world's leading manufacturers of coins and medals.
Today the institution, whose roots extend back some 1,000 years, is symbolised by a modern logo. The design is a depiction of the crowned Royal Arms surrounded by a repeating pattern, the inspiration for which is to be found in the Tudor rose design of the first gold sovereign struck in 1489.The colours - gold, silver, black and white - recall on one hand the precious metals that it crafts, and on the other, the dignity of the institution.
