Events | The Royal Mint Experience

Our Events

We put on a wide range of events throughout the year, which are suitable for all ages. Our events explore our history and traditions but are fun and creative, diverse, welcoming and intuitive. 

Past events have included meeting Peter Rabbit and hearing his tales, casting a plaster medal workshop, an Easter coin hunt, and meeting the museum curator.

Our events appeal to everyone, from young children to seasoned coin collectors. Whether you are looking for places to visit during half term with your children, or want to end your visit to the Experience with an evening event, contact us today to find out what events we have coming up.

I will forever be checking my coins! Thanks for the history lesson and tour of the making of the coins – excellent!
Very informative delivering knowledge so we could all understand the process. This tour without a shadow of doubt is one of the best guided tours I’ve ever been on; in fact I would take the tour again!
