Hello Brittany,


The Royal Mint is now home to the Hellenic Museum, you can contact them via their website to see if they offer tours.

the Crib Point towns people 1919 present a gold fob to their return soldiers - I am hoping to find one - but I am thinking the Mint would have producted these for towns after the war - is there a record of designs per township
