About Us

Welcome to ukcoins.co.uk

Our passion for coin collecting started many years ago, and it has led us to where we are today, offering an online guide for other coin collectors and featuring new coin releases from the Royal Mint.

We are an approved affiliate for the Royal Mint and may receive a small commission if you use our links to make qualifying purchases. This helps to fund our site costs such as hosting and domain name fees.

We are experienced in UK coins with extensive knowledge of the history and significance of each coin. Our goal is to provide our site visitors with the best free UK coin guide.

We do not provide any specific coin valuations and you should consult a qualified numismatic coin valuer in this regard such as NGC Coins. You can also look at eBay recent sales listings or join Facebook coin groups, where you can ask members to comment on the value of your coins.

Thank you for choosing UKCoins.co.uk, and we look forward to helping you find the perfect coin for your collection.

Who is The Royal Mint in the UK?

The Royal Mint is the government-owned mint of the United Kingdom, responsible for producing and issuing the country’s coins. The Royal Mint produces coins for circulation, as well as commemorative and bullion coins for collectors. Some examples of Royal Mint coins include:

  1. Circulating coins: These are the coins that you might use in everyday transactions, such as 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1, and £2 coins. The designs on these coins change periodically to reflect different themes or events.
  2. Commemorative coins: These are special coins that are issued to mark a particular event or anniversary. They may be made of different materials or finishes than circulating coins, and may have unique designs that are not found on regular circulation coins.
  3. Bullion coins: These are coins that are made of precious metals, such as gold, silver, or platinum, and are often bought as investments. The Royal Mint produces a range of bullion coins, including the British Gold Britannia, the Silver Britannia, and the Platinum Britannia.

The Royal Mint also produces medals and other numismatic products, and offers tours of its facilities in South Wales, where visitors can see how coins are made and learn about the history of the mint.
