Prep III visit the royal mintMarch 4th, 2017
How well do you know the coins in your pocket? The PIII boys found out a wealth of information on their visit to the Royal Mint in Llantristant.
Boys were led along the full production process and learnt about the life of a coin. They visited the Coin Press Room to see how blank pieces of metal become coins for the United Kingdom and countries around the world. They saw the mint in action, where millions of coins are produced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We may have inspired a few more boys to become numismatists.
