The Royal Mint announces plans for first visitor centre

The Royal Mint announces plans for first visitor centre

The Royal Mint has today unveiled plans to develop a visitor centre at its headquarters in South Wales. Construction of the purpose built visitor centre in Llantrisant will begin this spring, subject to planning permission, and is expected to be completed during 2015.

Visitors will have the opportunity to take a tour of The Royal Mint to see exactly how the coins they use every day are designed and made. In an opportunity that is sure to delight young and old alike, guests will have the ability to strike their own coin as an everlasting memento of their visit. As well as gaining first-hand knowledge of the journey which coins and medals make from start to finish, visitors will also be able to enjoy a range of static and engaging, interactive experiences that will bring to life The Royal Mint’s rich heritage and reveal many rare and unusual coins and medals from the across the world.

The new visitor centre has been made possible after The Royal Mint secured a grant of £2.3million from The Welsh Government to carry out the work, contributing to the total £7.7million costs of the project. The new Visitor Centre will be a signature development in the south Wales area and incorporate a rich heritage resource alongside live factory working environment. It will be a truly unique visitor experience with up to 200,000 UK and overseas visitors expected each year.

Shane Bissett, Director of Commemorative Coin and Bullion at The Royal Mint, said, " We have been exploring the opportunity of a visitor centre for some time. It gives us great pleasure to announce that this can now go ahead, and that people will be able to come here and see the work of one of Britain’s national treasures. The visitor centre will enable us to take people behind the scenes of over 1,000 years of coin making history and has the potential to draw visitors from all over the world."

Tourism Minister Edwina Hart said, “The new visitor centre will be an all year and all weather visitor attraction showcasing a unique product and global brand and will incorporate a rich heritage resource alongside a live factory working environment. This project has the potential to be an iconic attraction for Wales.”
