Strike your own The 50th anniversary of decimal day 50p

Available from 29th May 2021

In 1971, the United Kingdom’s coinage evolved from the centuries-old system of pounds, shillings and pence to a new decimal currency. Some 50 years later, we celebrate The Royal Mint’s successful Decimal Day with a new 50p commemorative coin that brings the old to mind, carefully selected pre-decimal coins, and sets that bring a sense of nostalgia to the occasion.

Since The Royal Mint Experience opened its doors in 2016, we have welcomed thousands of visitors from all across the world. The combination of enthralling history, interesting facts and fun activities has made us a destination for tourists of all ages and helped us to build a reputation as one of the most worthwhile places to visit in South Wales. Ensuring The Royal Mint Experience lives up to its name, every visitor has the opportunity to strike their very own coin as part of the tour, providing each guest with something truly unique to take home at the end of their visit. While the design of the coin may change depending on what theme we are celebrating at the time of your visit, striking your own coin is an experience that’s truly one of a kind.
