The Prince of Wales visited the Mather & Co designed Royal Mint Experience yesterday. During the visitor to headquarters Prince Charles struck a commemorative coin at the visitors centre.
His Royal Highness also took a tour through The Royal Mint Experience where he stopped to talk with Royal Mint staff involved in the production of the new £1.
Adam Lawrence, Chief Executive of The Royal Mint, said: “The Royal Mint is honoured to be welcoming His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to The Royal Mint Experience. We are particularly delighted that he will be striking the very first of the coins that will celebrate the contribution that The Duke of Edinburgh has made to public life.”
