Heads, I Win! Mint Man Graham's OBE Honour


Byline: Jessica Flynn

ROYAL Mint librarian and curator Graham Dyer joined the Government Trading Fund as soon as he left school at 18.

Now, after 40 years of working with Queen Elizabeth II's image, he is to be honoured by Her Royal Highness herself at Buckingham Palace tomorrow.

Graham, who is receiving an OBE for his service to the history of British currency, started his career with the Mint at Tower Hill, London in 1961. In 1980 he moved to the Mint's new hi-tech home at Llantrisant.

When he was nominated, the 58-year-old, who lives in Cowbridge, told the Echo: "Coins have been the great passion of my life both in terms of a hobby and a career.

"I asked to join the Mint at 18 straight from school because I was a coin collector and now with my career coming to an end it is a very nice thing to happen."

Graham specialises in historic coins and medals and is also widely respected in the numismatic world, having been president of the British Numismatic Society.

In addition to his duties as curator, he has also contributed to a wide range of Royal Mint publications and to numismatic product development.

Royal Mint deputy master and chief executive Roger Holmes praised his commitment to the company. He said: "I am especially pleased that an OBE has been awarded to Graham Dyer. Graham has given dedicated service to the Royal Mint for more than 40 years, and his numismatic knowledge and enthusiasm are admired and respected world-wide.
