GMT is the local clock time at Greenwich. It’s 10 minutes ahead of Bristol Mean Time and 13 minutes ahead of Cardiff Mean Time. For the more technical amongst us, Greenwich Mean Time is the yearly average (or "mean") of the time each day when the Sun crosses the Prime Meridian at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich. It was in 1876 that a single time zone setting the baseline for the rest of the world was first proposed. Engineer and inventor, Sandford Fleming, first made the call for a global 24-hour clock and although he wasn’t immediately successful he continued to push his concept and eventually the theory of a universal day, beginning at Greenwich midnight, was agreed upon by the International Meridian Conference.
The Royal Mint is excited to reveal its very first Quintessentially British A to Z coin collection celebrating all things British. The collection features 26 ten-pence coins, each one featuring a fun and quirky Quintessentially British design, from the iconic red Double Decker Bus and the famous prehistoric monument, Stonehenge to Ian Fleming’s secret agent, Bond, are all available as part of a very unique collection. Please join us to celebrate the United Kingdom one coin at a time, letter by letter, rhyme by rhyme.
