Trial of the Pyx: Always Making History

Drawing on over 1,100 years of unrivalled craftsmanship and minting experience, the coins we strike at The Royal Mint are scrutinised for accuracy and quality every year in an ancient ceremony. Dating back to the 13th century, the Trial of the Pyx is arguably the oldest quality assurance process in the world, and the ceremony still takes place every year at Goldsmiths’ Hall in London. In what can only be described as a fusion of modern technology and ancient tradition, the prestigious jurors inspect the coins with scrupulous attention to detail to ensure they adhere to legal specifications. The examination also helps to perpetuate the tradition of excellence that sits at the heart of The Royal Mint. We are pleased to exclusively offer you the rare opportunity to own a limited number of 2019-dated silver coins that were inspected at the 2020 Trial of the Pyx.
