The Royal Mint is considered the second oldest operating mint in the world, established by William the Conqueror. The older mint is Monnie de Paris serving France. The reputation of the Royal Mint for quality is unquestionable, it is one of the most renowned mints in the world. Now it appears that the appeal of its coins has increased, perhaps because more people are aware of them, perhaps a result of the queen’s Beasts series.
The bullion program of the Royal Mint consists of a range of desirable coins, and some highly regarded bars. The Queen’s Beasts series has certainly become popular, and the Britannia is still a significant coin. The Sovereign is a longstanding gold coin with a strong reputation. But even more coins are being added as time goes on, and there is an appreciation for them.
