PLEASE NOTE: THE ROYAL MINT EXPERIENCE IS CLOSED FROM DECEMBER 25TH TO JANUARY 4TH

Strike your own 2021 Snowman 50p

Strike your own 2021 Snowman 50p coin this Christmas at The Royal Mint Experience. First published in 1978, Raymond Briggs’ The Snowman has become an endearing winter’s tale that endures to this very day. The Royal Mint has commemorated the beloved story over the past few years due to its unwavering popularity. Much like the tale itself, which has become a quintessential part of Christmas traditions in Britain, this UK 50p coin is an embodiment of the festive spirit. With an original design by the award-winning illustrator and animator Robin Shaw, this coin is the perfect gift guaranteed to make a special friend or loved one smile.

Strike your own 2022 Jubilee 50p

On 6 February 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British monarch to reach a Platinum Jubilee. To celebrate the occasion, we have created the first UK 50p coin celebrating a royal event. 

If you’re visiting The Royal Mint Experience between 4 January 2022 and 14 March 2022, during your tour you’ll have the opportunity to strike your own Platinum Jubilee UK 50p Coin as a memento of this historic moment. The obverse of the coin will feature Jody Clark’s definitive coinage portrait of The Queen.

Since The Royal Mint Experience opened its doors in 2016, we have welcomed thousands of visitors from all across the world. The combination of enthralling history, interesting facts and fun activities has made us a destination for tourists of all ages and helped us to build a reputation as one of the most worthwhile places to visit in South Wales. Ensuring The Royal Mint Experience lives up to its name, every visitor has the opportunity to strike their very own coin as part of the tour, providing each guest with something truly unique to take home at the end of their visit. While the design of the coin may change depending on what theme we are celebrating at the time of your visit, striking your own coin is an experience that’s truly one of a kind.

A ‘Strike Your Own Coin’ experience can be purchased on arrival and is available to all of our tour guests. Available to purchase at check-in for £6.90, this experience is limited to one visit per day and one coin per person in order to maintain the exclusivity of each personally struck coin.
