mint

“Just 20 minutes from Cardiff, you can gain unprecedented access to The Royal Mint to discover the people and events behind the coins in your pocket, and hear some surprising stories from our history.”  Quote from the Royal Mint website we enjoyed our visit today to the new visitors centre which only opened in March this year (2016)

The centre gives you a tour behind the doors of the mint and the story behind the history of coinage. Well worth a visit. I even struck my own £1 coin.
