Since 650, coins have been minted in Great Britain, at that time in several mints across the country. Around 1540, the remaining mints closed and the Royal Mint was the only mint normally in operation. In 1663, striking coins by hand was finally abandoned with the introduction of screw presses and horse-drawn rolling mills!
