The Royal Mint Experience

Discover the unexpected wonder of coins

What do we mean by ‘coin design’?
Why are coins different colours, shapes and sizes?
Who designs coins - and how?
What is counterfeiting?
How does The Royal Mint use cutting-edge technology to keep coins secure now and for the future?

School visits to The Royal Mint offer a wealth of learning opportunities for your pupils. In addition to the the exhibition and factory tour, we offer fun and engaging workshops for Key Stage 2 pupils aged 7-11.
