We’ve kicked off our work with The Royal Mint in earnest and last week saw the team pitching a flogging and just generally doing a proper publicity job for them.
We’ve been showing off the art of those at the Mint by way of the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation – for which there is a special coin – and have been getting the media talking about the craft and art that goes into making the nation’s coins.
Thanks to some smart news handling, we’ve a cracking crop of stories to show for our troubles, with features ranging from an infographic showing what £5 would buy at each stage of her reign to features pieces on her changing face across the four portraits.
However, the crowning glory has been finding the story of Jean Emerson who, it transpires, was the Queen’s body double for her first portrait – modelling astride a horse in Her Majesty’s stead (presumably while the newly crowned Monarch had better things to do).
The coverage has come from across the board, with this feature on SKY …
Elsewhere, we landed top pieces in the Daily Express, the Daily Mail, the Daily Express again, the Daily Telegraph, METRO, The Times, City AM and … the Daily Express (c’mon, it’s a royal story, what did you expect?) amongst a bucket load of others.
Belting work from the team. Though we do say so ourselves.
