We've made coins for more than 1,100 years.
The proof is in the pudding.

Christmas and Coins

Stir-up Sunday is the last Sunday before Advent and is traditionally the day when Christmas puddings should be made to give them enough time to mature before the big day. Everyone gathers round to stir the pudding mix and make a wish as they take their turn. Then one last ingredient is added, the most important one of all, because if you find the sixpence on your plate come Christmas day it’s said you’ll be blessed with good luck.

This year the day falls on 25 November 2018. Taking part in this fun family activity? We’d love to see how you’re getting on. Be sure to share your #stirupsunday with us on social media. You'll find The Royal Mint on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
