This sounded quite exciting - but when you look at the notice, the gold coins are denominated £5,000, £2,000, £1,000, £500 and £200 (62.42 grams) so they are going to cost a fortune.  It is a pity they are not going to produce a gold Una & Lion in the standard quintuple sovereign size (even though these cost enough).  There will be a £5 in silver.

If I am reading the notice correctly, the £5,000 version weighs 5,010 g. That's 161 toz. That's about £190,000 just for the gold. 

I'm pretty sure it won't fit in my tube of fractional gold coins, which is too bad, otherwise who knows, I might have picked one up. 🤔

But don't forget, there is the 2% discount from the Coin Connection!
