Pride of Britain

As a proud British organisation with a 1,100-year history, producing iconic flagship coins such as The Sovereign and Britannia, The Royal Mint has played an active role in celebrating and commemorating all things that make Britain great. From magnificent rulers, such as Her Majesty The Queen – Britain’s longest reigning monarch – to home-grown cultural icons, including James Bond, David Bowie and Winnie the Pooh, we have consistently captured the nation’s pride and glory through beautifully struck coins.
