Royal Mint - VIP tour review

@mr-dead is that private tour so only you and your daughter ?

The tour is free by invite only for the behind the scenes part inc. the museum.  It was myself, my daughter and 2 other gents.

You just have to spend too much with Royal Mint so they allocate you an account manager then get the goodies :)

The 2 other guys on the tour have been twice before.  If I get another invite in the future perhaps I can put the +1 up as a forum competition prize.

Missed this, a fascinating account, many thanks! :)

For balance I would just point out that I know a dealer who went along to one of these days and watched proof coins being minted and was left very upset indeed by the 'QC' and when questioned about it apparently the guide got quite nasty, and it took a call to management upstairs to come down to apologise and try to smooth things over. Perhaps it was a bad day for the guide and QC, but many recent high premium issues from the Mint have had very poor 'need to return' rates...

Anyway, sounds like a super day for you and your daughter @mr-dead, great stuff, thanks again for the report :)
