The Royal Mint has been operating for over a thousand years, and in that time has developed a high degree of excellence as evidenced by the quality of the British coins. While it mints for many nations, it has the responsibility of minting the coins of the United Kingdom as its primary duty.
The Royal Mint has for a long time lagged in creativity, and some of its coin designs did not keep up with the multitude of designs from places like Australia and Canada. But, now things have changed. The new additions to its coinage are astonishing, and they may very well find a universal appeal.
