Cardiff city is dominated by a spectacular castle which dates back almost 2000 years. From futuristic dockside developments of Cardiff Bay to the historical centre, this city can take you on a journey from the first to the twenty-first century in a day. Discover the unexpected wonder of coins with a tour of the Royal Mint, led by your Visitor Host. You will enter one of the manufacturing areas, to discover how blank pieces of metal are made before being struck to become coins. Best of all, if you will also be given the opportunity to strike your own coin.
