Royal Mint Annual Reports
The Royal Mint’s Annual Reports contain frank discussion of major issues relating to the Mint, currency and minting processes. They cover a particularly important period of change, from the end of the Victorian period, the tumult of two World Wars, to the move of the Mint out of London and the Mint’s involvement in the coinage of many Commonwealth countries as they gained independence. The completeness of each Report means that they form a primary source for anyone wishing to conduct research into the Royal Mint and the modern British coinage, and also the major currency and monetary issues of the day. They are of national and, as a result of the Mint’s export work and the inclusion of reports from the Mint’s overseas branches, also of international importance to numismatists and collectors, as well as economic and currency historians.
