Celebrating 58 Years Of Minting Innovation

The Pobjoy family traces it's connections to precious metals back over 300 years. Created with a single coin press and an ambitious idea in 1965 by Derek Pobjoy, the British Pobjoy Mint has produced a myriad of exceptionally crafted commemorative, legal tender and bullion coins since it's inception.

Managed by Taya Pobjoy since 1998, the mint proudly struck it's last legal tender coin upon the announcement of her retirement in October 2023. The end of an era perhaps, but the diverse and extensive range of Pobjoy designed and struck commemorative coins are sure to bring joy for many years to come.

Thank You!

On behalf of the Pobjoy family, our sincerest appreciation and recognition goes out to all our valued customers, partners, colleagues and employees over so many eventful years. Taya Pobjoy-Mintmaster
