Can I visit the Royal Mint?

Some years ago the Royal Mint discontinued visits by members of the general public to its site at Llantrisant in South Wales. The decision was taken on the grounds of health, safety and security.

You may be interested in visiting the history and museum sections of our website to find out more about the Royal Mint and the fascinating subject of coins and coin collecting.

In addition, you may like to consider visiting the HSBC Money Gallery at the British Museum which provides a comprehensive history of money. The Bank of England has a museum open to the public which also offers a fascinating insight into the nature of money.

The Royal Mint Visitor Centre

For the first time in our 1,000 year history we will open a visitor centre for the general public, allowing them to get behind the scenes and see for themselves the people and processes that put the pounds and pennies in their pockets.  Click here to sign up to receive updates about the visitor centre.
