For our American friends across the pond, Thanksgiving is a time for turkey and trimmings but once it’s over, it’s time to turn your attention to Christmas shopping. Are you hoping to gift something thoughtful with a rich history and heritage? Something stylish and precious with a hint of traditional?
It’s a tall order to fill but available in abundance at The Royal Mint.
Our British coins are a popular collectable gift across the globe and are all made on-site in our site in Llantrisant, Wales.
As a British institution with over 1,100 years of history and heritage, we are known worldwide for the high quality of our coins, and our long tradition of craftsmanship, heritage and artistry.
Our Royal Family gives us a sense of regal tradition as we commemorate our monarch, Queen Elizabeth, and the Royal family on our coins. Queen Elizabeth’s effigy sits proudly on the obverse (front) of every current coin, and 2019 has seen our royalty ranges grow with the Tower of London collection as well as the continuation of our Queens Beasts range – both iconic British themes intrinsically linked to our monarchy.
Celebrate and commemorate the Royal Family and royal celebrations from our range of royalty coins here.
If you love British culture and history, perhaps our Annual Sets might intrigue you? Our Annual Sets demonstrate British history and anniversaries, and this year, we’ve depicted each individual coin as a monumental story in miniature. The 2019 Annual Sets include the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria, Wedgwood, Sherlock Holmes, D-Day and Samuel Pepys. Delve into the world of each, through our stunning animation, focusing on the tiniest detail that makes up these monumental moments in British history.
You can also celebrate the unique United Kingdom with our Great British Coin Hunt. Out A-Z range of 10 pence (10p) coins depict those quintessentially British landmarks, pastimes and traditions that make our isle so special. From the iconic double decker bus to the zebra crossing, the beloved game of cricket to a full English breakfast, our Great British Coin Hunt range celebrates everything that makes Britain so great.
The range is available as a set or individual letters, ideal to spell out a name or special message. What better way to wish a merry Christmas than in sparkling silver, something your loved ones can keep and treasure forever?
