Royal Mint expands its bullion coin offerings with a gold Two Dragons and the third silver Landmarks of Britain

Recommended Posts

 

The Royal Mint is increasing its presence in the international gold and silver bullion coin markets with yet more new issues. Uncharacteristically for the mint, the last couple of years has seen a much bigger range of choice from the usual Britannia and Sovereigns that have served them well for many decades. Neither of these new issues is particularly unexpected or ground-breaking, but both are decent designs and very welcome.

The first of the two new issues is a gold version of the recently released Two Dragons bullion coin. Making its first appearance barely two months ago, the silver version was a very cool mix of Welsh and Chinese dragons – a clever amalgamation of the Royal Mints location and the intended market. The gold variant is copy of the same design and also weighs an ounce. No other sizes are available at present and the mintage on this one is capped at just 5,000 units.

The Landmarks of Britain coin is the third in the series and depicts Trafalgar Square. It follows the earlier Big Ben and Tower Bridge issues. These are bullion copies of a proof set released in mid-2014, so expect the last of the four to depict Buckingham Palace. Again, just a single format up for grabs and it’s the classic one-ounce silver and with a mintage of 50,000 pieces. Like the Two Dragons coin, this one has the guilloche finish to the obverse that looks pretty good.

Available to order now from Royal Mint Bullion directly or from dealers worldwide like LPM and APMEX.
