Wilkommen! Over the years many of the Treorchy Male Choir members have been employed by the Royal Mint, based at neighbouring Llantrisant since 1968 following more than a thousand years of coin making at the Tower of London. In 2011 a small group of choristers, who generally attend weddings, funerals and minor events as a representation of the Treorchy Male Choir, were invited to visit the Mint's first Open Day for families and friends of employees. At that particular event a Guinness World Record took place for the largest coin toss and the choristers, provided the afternoon entertainment for the many thousands of visitors. Officials from the Mint were so impressed with the Choir's contribution to the success of the day that they promised to employ their services again in the future.
