So what have we done to contribute to the Green Key award?

Visitors will not fail to spot a bright addition in the landscape- A giant revolving daffodil, suitably named Delilah. Installed in September 2018, our wind turbine can provide 850kw of power - that’s equivalent to boiling 850 kettles an hour. 

In addition to the wind turbine, The Royal Mint Experience features solar energy panels allowing us to harness natural power to help fuel its premises.

Electric Car Charging- In October 2019, we installed a twin 7kW car charging unit in our Customer car park.

We had a good discussion with the couple about electric cars, the environment and how we are trying to do all we can to be sustainable on our site, it was a spontaneous visit that by chance worked out perfectly they said.

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.
