Royal Mint Product Description:

50 Years of Decimalisation

Marking the moment when the history of British currency changed forever

2018 marks 50 years of decimalisation in Britain, the biggest change in the country's monetary system for centuries. To meet the demands of the new decimal system, a completely new Royal Mint was built. Work began in August 1967 at Llantrisant, South Wales, where the new site was being built - a move from the old site in Tower Hill, London . Her Majesty The Queen opened the first phase of the new site in December 1968.
