The Royal Mint Museum reaches a remarkable milestone

Today the Royal Mint Museum marks its 200th anniversary! To celebrate this milestone, for 200 days the Museum will share its collection on Facebook, taking a look at a new object each day and revealing some remarkable objects from the collection along the way. In its 200 years, the collection has grown to now encompass nearly 100,000 coins, as well as a collection of some 31,000 tools and 18,000 plasters. But just how has the collection grown and developed over that time?
