Day Trips visit Royal Mint and National Museum of Wales

The Day Trips Group is running the following trip ROYAL MINT AND NATIONAL MUSEUM OF WALES - TUESDAY 14TH JANUARY 2020 ROYAL MINT Here you'll learn about the history at one of the top-rated tourist attractions in South Wales, and you will be able to see the special coins and rare historical memorabilia that their exhibition holds. There are six different zones to explore at your leisure and visitor hosts will be ready and waiting to answer any questions you may have. You will be taken on a guided tour where you will be able to witness, first-hand, the workforce producing coins and following the measures they abide by; you will learn more about the machinery that is used, the state-of-the-art equipment that helps and the processes of creating a coin. As well as watching live coin production, you will be able to experience it for yourself by striking your own coin as a lasting memento of your visit. As well as minting circulating coins for use domestically and internationally, the mint also produces planchets, commemorative coins, various types of medals and precious metal bullion. The mint exports to an average of 60 countries a year, making up 70% of its total sales. For more information visit www.royalmint.com.
