Full description
Watch the United Kingdom’s coins being made at the Royal Mint. Go behind the scenes to follow the journey of a coin from a blank piece of metal to a currency on this 45-minute guided factory tour. Experience the sights and sounds of thousands of glistening new coins, hot off the machines, and get the chance to strike your very own coin.

Then, wander at your own pace through the interactive exhibition, and discover the incredible processes needed to make a coin. Test your knowledge of the coins that have been made for countries around the world and get up close to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic medals. Finally, listen to the stories of those whose bravery has been rewarded with the UK’s service medals.
