The Royal Mint

The Royal Mint has an unbroken history of minting British coinage dating back over 1,100 years.

By the late thirteenth century the organisation was based in the Tower of London, and remained there for over 500 years. In 1967 the building of a new Royal Mint began on its current site in South Wales, UK.

The Royal Mint has long been trusted with the currencies of other countries. It has served more than 100 issuing authorities around the world and currently meets approximately 15% of global demand, making us the world’s leading export mint.

In 2014, The Royal Mint launched a new bullion trading website, www.royalmintbullion.com, enabling customers to buy, store and sell bullion coins at constantly updated prices directly from The Royal Mint quickly, effortlessly and securely, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

In June 2015, The Royal Mint launched Signature Gold, a new addition to its bullion trading service, allowing customers to purchase and own a fractional amount of a 400 oz gold bar from www.royalmintbullion.com.

In 2016, The Royal Mint announced its partnership with derivatives marketplace Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), to develop and trade an innovative new product, Royal Mint Gold (RMG). This new service will provide an easier, cost-effective and cryptographically secure alternative to buying, holding and trading spot gold, and will be launched during 2017.

In May 2017 The Royal Mint Bullion announced the launch of investment-grade platinum coins and bars.
