About the Mint


About us

Set up by the Pobjoy family in 1965, Pobjoy Mint is a manufacturer of legal tender coins for over ten British Overseas Territories. As a private mint, we also produce medals, medallions, official regalia, tokens and numismatic gifts.

We strike official commemorative and circulating coins, therefore, all our coins bear HM Queen Elizabeth II's effigy or the Coat of Arms of the country.


Where we're based

Pobjoy Mint UK headquarters and factory are based in the county of Surrey, England. Since 1996, we also have an office located in Minnesota, United States of America.

Our UK office serves clients across Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and Antarctica whilst the USA office serves clients across North and South America.

Who runs the Mint

Pobjoy Mint’s Managing Director, Taya Pobjoy, is the second generation of the Pobjoy family to head up this privately owned mint.

Brief History

The Pobjoy family has been associated with fine metalwork since the Middle Ages. Over the past three centuries, the Company has been involved in many diverse fields, but they have always been involved in metal, both base and precious. During World War II Pobjoy Aero Engineering was involved in the manufacturing of the famous Spitfire wings. We are now a private mint with over 50 years of deep involvement in the development and manufacturer of coins, medals and tokens.

Over the years we’ve had the privilege to manufacture special pieces on behalf of several Governments, for presentation to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and other members of the British Royal Family.

In 1978, we developed the world's first satisfactory man-made precious metal, called Virenium, which has been successfully used in high denomination coinage since then.

We have also produced many World’s first in the Coin Industry including the First Circulating Base Metal £1 Coin for the Isle of Man in 1979. This was then followed by the United Kingdom.

Over the years we’ve had many successful programs including a bullion coin containing one ounce of pure platinum, featuring the Noble a Viking ship, as well as the Gold Angel. This last coin won the 'Best Gold Coin of the World' Award for that year.

Since 1999, we are known as the only manufacturer to successfully produce coloured titanium coinage in the world.

With all this experience, we continue to expand and innovate to produce the highest quality products for all our customers worldwide.

About the Brand

As a fully functional manufacturing mint, we are able to provide a complete service from the origination of artwork, the concept of special projects, design, manufacture, marketing, sales and distribution worldwide.

In 2004 the Pobjoy Mint also became involved in the design, production and sale of new issue stamps as a natural extension of its numismatic business.

Since 2016, we have been awarded the ISO 9001 2015 quality mark by BSI which represented recognition of the overall high standard of quality and customer service achieved by the mint.
