The Royal Mint is the only place in the world where you can watch the UK’s coins being made. Go behind the scenes to follow the journey of a coin, then wander at your through the Interactive Exhibition, discovering the incredible processes needed to make a coin. Get up close to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic medals. Then relax over a Deluxe Afternoon Tea at The Royal Mint.
From the Blackmore Vale we take you directly The Royal Mint at Llantrisant, where you will be greeted by a Visitor Host who will take you through security checks.
Your experience will start in the Pre-Show area where you will gain an introduction to the Royal Mint. Led by our Visitor Host you will enter one of the manufacturing areas to discover how blank pieces of metal are made before being struck to become coins. From a viewing area, you will look into the striking hall where thousands of coins are produced, 24 hours a day.
You will then be able to strike your own coin and take it home with you as this is the only place in Britain where you can do this. The design of the coin alters, depending on what theme we are celebrating at the time of your visit. People who have visited The Royal Mint Experience before, for example, struck a rare, 2018-dated Sir Isaac Newton 50p coin or have a picture surrounded by a chest of coins (additional charges apply). After the Factory Experience, you will be escorted to the self-guided Interactive Exhibition to explore six different zones at your own pace.
Once you have taken your fill of all that this experience offers you we will meet up again to take lunch at the Royal Mint which includes cheese & red onion baguette, spitfire beef pie, chicken goujons, chips, salted caramel brownie, scone with jam & cream and tea.
