The Royal Mint is renowned for its extensive portfolio, offering a diverse array of coins and jewellery for more than 60 countries worldwide, encompassing historical pieces as well as contemporary designs. Additionally, The Royal Mint produces gold, silver, and platinum bullion, with the Holy Kaaba-engraved gold bullion being one of its most prominent creations in 2023, designed in collaboration with the Islamic Council of Wales.
