The Royal Mint is the official sovereign mint of England. It can trace its roots to the 8th century AD and the London Mint. Though various mints coined silver and gold currency for the crown through the 13th century, the Royal Mint in London established itself as the official sovereign mint in that century. Today, the Royal Mint operates its primary coining facility in Wales.
