    Some history; (wiki copy & paste)
     
    Samuel Montagu & Co. was a British merchant bank founded by Samuel Montagu in 1853.
    Set up as a bullion broking business, it aimed to make money from the Australian gold rush by brokering deals between sellers and buyers. From 1911 onwards, it became part of the group of companies which formed the London bullion market.[1]
    After the death of founder Samuel Montagu, the bank passed into the ownership of the family trust, Montagu Trust. In 1967, the Midland Bank acquired a share in Montagu Trust, and so became the first British clearing bank to control a London merchant bank. Samuel Montagu & Co. became a wholly owned subsidiary in 1974,[2] and on completion of the acquisition Midland also gained a majority share in Guyerzeller Bank AG in Switzerland. Michael Samuel Rosenberg was Director of Corporate Finance for Samuel Montagu & Co. Ltd., from 1972 to 1974[3] [2]
    Samuel Montagu's chairman in 1977 was Philip Shelbourne, who owned a terrier named Montagu, which would travel with him in the back seat of his chauffeur-driven Mercedes. Shelbourne, a trained barrister, had been the first outside director of NM Rothschild, before joining the Drayton Corporation, a manager of investment trusts. Its founder, Harley Drayton, was a well-known City buccaneer. Drayton was later absorbed by Samuel Montagu, to form the merchant bank's investment management subsidiary, Drayton Montagu Portfolio Management. In 1977 its managing director was David, now Lord, Stevens. 
    Today, Samuel Montagu & Co. forms part of the private banking service of HSBC. The name was last used by HSBC in 2000. In 2003, HSBC spun off its private equity business, which took the name Montagu Private Equity.[4]

    Hello Yas, I can't tell you date of mintage but i'd guess 1980's or 1990's. You won't find it in any of those guide's you mention as its a Pure Bullion coin.

    Samuel Montagu is a Big Player in Gold & Silver Bullion Investment items, they were established in 1853 in London and are Hugely involved in Big Business today....HSBC Bank, Hong Kong Markets amongst many others.
     
     
    Lot more info online, But can’t really find another example of the coin or information regarding mintage which would be a big help. If anyone has any info that would be music to my ears 👍
     
    Many Thanks

    Another thought is that many dealers sell direct on eBay, including APMEX, Pinehurst, Bullion Exchanges, and MCM. Of course they all mark up for eBay fees, but an eBay gift card would allow purchases from these dealers' eBay listings.
