The Royal Mint



The Royal Mint serves more than 100 issuing authorities around the world, meeting approximately 15% of global demand – making us the world’s leading export mint, with more business in more places than anyone else.

Defining the Minting Industry – Continuous improvement and innovation underpins The Royal Mint’s approach and helps us enhance and re-define our product and service offerings. We have a wealth of experts in all areas of coin and blank production and delivery, and work with our customers to ensure that the right products and volumes are produced to match the needs of each individual issuing authority. We are the only mint to provide a Coin Management Training Programme, a comprehensive week-long training course specifically for issuing authorities.

Products and services to secure and strengthen your currency – The Royal Mint’s aRMour® is a market-leading full-plate coin and blank product that has been independently verified by Fraunhofer, Europe’s largest independent research organisation, to last up to five times longer than plated products from some other export mints. As a result, aRMour full-plated steel coins are in use in over 50 countries. In 2013, The Royal Mint announced a ground-breaking step-change in coinage security, with a new intelligent covert security feature that enables issuing authorities to accurately monitor their coins in the cash cycle, using trusted banknote security to elevate confidence in coins. The United Kingdom Government announced in 2014 that it would introduce a new £1 coin, which will be the world’s most secure circulating coin, utilising multiple layers of cutting-edge technology including the new high security feature. We provide proven expert advice and consultancy on all aspects of currency, including cash-cycle strategy, specification, design and production, tooling, alloy recovery programmes, cash-management services, counterfeit detection, mint build and refurbishment.
