Want to know how to make money? Then join us on a visit to Cardiff and The Royal Mint Experience! You’ll find out how cash has evolved over the past 1100 years, and you’ll go behind the scenes to see the journey of a coin, from blank to bank. You’ll also discover the people and events behind the coins in your pocket and hear some surprising stories from The Royal Mint’s history. There are static and interactive experiences that really bring to life the 1000-year-old organisation’s heritage, too.

You will be staying in the modern three-star Park Inn by Radisson, which is in a residential area on the outskirts of the City, close to the M4 – and just a short distance from Cardiff Castle, Millennium Stadium, Wales Millennium Centre and Cardiff Bay, so it’s a top spot!

About The Royal Mint Museum

2017 is an important year for The Royal Mint, when it will strike the new 12-sided £1 coin and a shiny 50p coin to celebrate the genius of Sir Isaac Newton. You can even strike your own commemorative coin, too. As well as their monetary value, you’ll discover the different roles that coins play in our lives today, as good-luck charms and collectors’ items, for example. Did you know that The Mint also makes military, sport and commemorative medals? Some of the finest examples, gathered from more than 100 countries, are housed here.
