The Changing Face of British Coins – 60 years of the Queen’s coinage

The Royal Mint is famous for making coins.

We have been doing this for over 1000 years and have made coins for every King and Queen of England in that time (as well as for Oliver Cromwell).

While we are busy making the change in your pocket, change in society is happening all around us. Our infographic presents a look at some of the changes that have happened during the 60 years that Queen Elizabeth II has been the face of British coins!
