Our Craft


It takes a great deal of time to hone a craft – over 1,100 years in our experience. As the maker of coins for the United Kingdom, as well as countries around the
world, we continuously have to innovate and develop in order to maintain our high standards of craftsmanship. That’s where our proud heritage built on
originality guides us into the modern day. Although technology and manufacturing processes have undergone monumental changes over the past millennium, the
same approach of dedication and precision remains at our core. Whether we’re producing bullion bars or a commemorative coin wrought in gold and struck to
the highest quality, all of our products are made with precision and handled with care.

With more than 1,100 years of experience, we are The Original Maker
