Royal Mint. A national mint with "royal" in its name. While the Royal Mint was what most every monarchy once had as its factory for producing all the country's coins – and infrequently medals – only the following countries currently have a Royal Mint: Afghanistan, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Thailand and the United Kingdom. The Royal Mint in London is the oldest such mint of any empire although all British coins are now struck at the Royal Mint at Llantrisant, South Wales. See national mint.
