Attraction Information

Ever wondered where money comes from? Take the kids to The Royal Mint Experience, one of the UK's most fascinating attractions, and witness the UK’s coins being made. The shiny silver and gold coins you watch being produced during your visit will enter circulation, and may very well end up in your pocket next week.

You’ll start off with a 45-minute guided tour of the factory, which produces the staggering 750 coins a minute. Want to have a go at coin-making? You can strike your own coins for a small fee! Once the tour is over, you are welcome to explore the interactive exhibition featuring 6 fascinating zones. Take the chance to delve into the Royal Mint’s history and lift a 400oz Gold Bar.

A trip to The Royal Mint Experience is a great way to teach your kids about money. It’s going to be a fun and educational experience for the whole family; you might learn something too!
