The Royal Mint has evolved to become a sophisticated industrial concern, which operates today as a government company. The 1,100 years of its existence track the history of Britain through its wars and political upheavals, its social and economic progress, its technological and scientific advances. Its history is, in short, woven into that of Britain itself.
