The Royal Mint has unveiled plans to throw open its doors to the public for the first time in its 1,000 year history.
Officials today announced they are planning to develop a £7.7 million visitor centre at the mint in Llantrisant, South Wales.
Visitors will be allowed to look behind the scenes and see for themselves the people and processes responsible for the coins we use every day.
They will also have the opportunity to strike their own coin as a memento of their visit.
The project has been made possible after the Royal Mint secured a grant of £2.3million from the Welsh Government.
Construction of the visitor centre will begin this spring, subject to planning permission.
