Celebrate the People who Make us Proud this Summer

From literary greats to leaders in science and sporting heroes, join The Royal Mint for a summer of British Icons. We’re celebrating the people who make us proud, from the influential and inspiring novelists Sir Walter Scott and H.G. Wells to the groundbreaking scientists Mary Anning and John Logie Baird, and the incredible athletes of Team GB. This summer is the perfect time to pay tribute to icons – past and present – who have made great contributions to the United Kingdom.
