Have you ever held a solid gold bar?
December 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of The Royal Mint moving to Llantrisant. The first temporary exhibition in the new space will explore the reasons behind the move from Tower Hill, how the Mint has developed over the years and the personal experiences of the staff who have worked at the Mint during this time. The exhibition will include objects and photographs from the Museum’s collection as well as extracts from interviews with Royal Mint staff.
The exhibition will feature an interactive dragon animation that will be displayed behind a gold bar housed in a protective case allowing visitors the opportunity to touch and even lift a 400oz gold bar.
Exhibition opens from 18 December 2018. Book online or call on 0333 241 2223.
