HC Deb 04 February 1976 vol 904 c665W
Mr. Trotter

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the current cost of minting each of the coins of the realm; what is the average cost at the time of decimalisation; and what has been the percentage increase in the period.

Mr. Denzil Davies

It is not the practice to give information relating to production costs which could be of commercial value to the Royal Mint's competitors.
