Groups can benefit from discounted entry to The Royal Mint Experience.

You’ll go behind the scenes at The Royal Mint through its award-winning guided tour during which you will visit the circulating coin factory where you may be lucky and experience coins for the UK, or one of its partner countries, being minted right in front of your eyes. Your group members will also hear about the fascinating process behind making every coin on-site before being able to strike their very own coin*. 

As well as bespoke group packages and discounted admission, group travel organisers can also treat their members to a decadent afternoon tea, or grab a tasty lunch together, before or after the tour, as part of the exclusive groups menu.
