Strike Your Own Coin | The Royal Mint

Since The Royal Mint Experience opened its doors in 2016, we have welcomed thousands of visitors and have built a reputation as one of the most worthwhile places to visit in South Wales.

As part of your tour, you will have the opportunity to strike your very own coin. It is worth noting that the design of the coin alters, depending on what theme we are celebrating at the time of your visit.

From June 28th, guests can strike their very own Sherlock Holmes 50p coin

The Royal Mint's interpretation of Sherlock Holmes, released via a 50p coin for the 160th anniversary of Conan Doyle's birth, was designed by textual artist and designer Stephen Raw – a longtime fan of the detective. Stephen Raw first connected with Sherlock Holmes through a radio dramatisation, which then drew him to the stories themselves, as well as television and film adaptations.

  • Available for a limited time.
  • Customers can strike 1 coin per person

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!
We spent nearly 4hrs there on Saturday. It was a great experience and you will be surprised for how many countries the Royal Mint is producing coins. A lot to see in the exhibition and the tour of the plant was great
The Royal Mint is a fascinating experience with many 'I didn't know that!' moments. Our tour guide, Lydia, took us through the experience quickly and efficiently and combined historical and fun facts.
