1,100 Years of Making Coins for Royalty
The Royal Family is admired by people throughout the United Kingdom and across the globe and Her Majesty The Queen – the world’s longest living reigning monarch – is universally respected for her dedication to the people of Britain and the Commonwealth. Members of the Royal Family support The Queen with official duties and also carry out a huge amount of charitable and public service work.
As the original maker of UK coins, The Royal Mint has struck every UK coin of The Queen’s reign and we are marking this once-in-a-lifetime moment with one of our largest coin collections to date.
The Royal Family
Despite their extraordinary royal lineage, The Royal Family are known for their down-to-earth attitude as they balance public service with decidedly ‘normal’ personal lives.
The Longest Reigning Monarch
Since 1952 these coins have told the story of Her Majesty’s journey from a young queen to the experienced, respected head of state she is today.
Iconic kings and queens from four royal houses: Tudor, Stuart, Hanoverian and Windsor, formerly known as Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.
