Royal Mint Experience Bank Holiday Jubilation!
Come to The Royal Mint Experience over the bank holiday weekend and enjoy a host of jubilee-themed activities to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s 70 years of service.
You can explore our Platinum Jubilee exhibition, take part in an art or medal-making workshop, enjoy a little coin-related magic or join The Big Jubilee Lunch. We also have an exciting event where collectors can meet, share stories and swap coins with each other to complete their collections. Here, you can take advantage of our expertise and have coins and collections authenticated or valued.
Our celebrations will run from 30 May to 5 June 2022, with additional activities available to book separately.
Children visiting The Royal Mint Experience over the bank holiday weekend can find their inner artist with a Jubilee Medal-Making Workshop. From 30 May to 1 June 2022, this 30-minute workshop will run four times a day. The artist behind each design will be entered into a competition from which seven winners – one for every decade of The Queen’s reign – will take home a Platinum Jubilee UK 50p Coin and Minty®, The Royal Mint’s official piggy bank. The workshop costs £5.00 and one free session is available with every tour ticket.
Jubilee-Themed Art Workshops
Get creative on 5 June 2022 at art classes hosted by local artist Beth Morris. Children aged 7 to 14 will learn how to create a mixed media image of Her Majesty The Queen, whilst adults can create a Platinum Jubilee stitched medal or brooch; all materials will be provided.
The children’s session will run from 11.30am to 1pm and costs £20.00 per child or £15.00 if purchased with a tour ticket. The adult session will run from 2pm to 4.30pm and costs £25.00 per adult or £20.00 if purchased with a tour ticket.
Visit The Royal Mint Experience on 2 June 2022 and enjoy being entertained with amazing magic for all ages. The award-winning magician Stuart Watkins will be putting on special coin-related magic shows and wowing people with close-up magic throughout the day. The 40-minute show will run twice a day and tickets cost £5.00.
Exhibition Trail and Activities
Over the bank holiday weekend, you can explore our Platinum Jubilee exhibition, which explores Queen Elizabeth II’s reign through coinage and reveals the stories of the coins marking this important milestone.
