The Royal Mint

Back to Our community

In this member-exclusive online event, you’ll hear from Assistant Curator of the Royal Mint museum Chris Barker about the Mint’s long and fascinating history, from striking its first coins during the reign of Alfred the Great right up to the present day.

You’ll hear about some of the historic coins produced at the Mint over the years and maybe even find out how it played a role in promoting one of the Beatles’ most famous songs.

And the good news? It won’t cost you a penny...
