The Royal Mint, the mint responsible for United Kingdom coins, has been operating since the tenth century. It is committed to high quality.
The British coins are not colorized, nor are they highlighted with holograms. United Kingdom coins are coins in the traditional sense. Recently, the Royal Mint has begun to mint coins with a shape other than round.
British coins include the Sovereign and the Britannia, two coins with a long history. Other coins in gold and in silver are also being produced. British coins include bullion coins, circulation coins, and proof coins.
The obverse on British coins is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse often includes subjects of interest to those who appreciate the rich history of the United Kingdom. One topic that is a frequent subject of United Kingdom coins is the monarchy, and any significant event involving the Royal Family, such as a birth or a wedding.
