From the clang of hammers along Mint Street to the hum of today’s state-of-the-art factory floor, coin production at The Royal Mint has been through an extraordinary evolution. Progressing from simple hand striking via mechanisation, steam power and electrification to the present day where precision lasers enable astonishing details, each stage has enabled new possibilities, improving quality and elevating artistry. Comprising coins struck at key moments in numismatic history that demonstrate each era of innovation, this fascinating set charts the evolution of Britain’s coinage, and the role we have played in developing new techniques and technologies to create coins of the highest standard.
