Gold Five Ounces (5 oz), Coin Type from Saint Helena - detailed information

Gold Five Ounces (5 oz), Coin Type from Saint Helena (issued 2020 - )
Coin TypeGold Five Ounces (5 oz)

Saint Helena is a small island in the South Atlantic Ocean which is part of the British overseas territory of Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha. The currency of the island is the Saint Helena pound, fixed at parity with the pound sterling. The island has authorised some private mints to issue coins under its jurisdiction, which come in a variety of sizes - including in the large five ounces of gold (5 oz gold) format, denominated as £5.

The coins are "Non-Circulating Legal Tender" (NCLT) and not bullion because they are issued at prices much higher than their bullion value and are targeted at collectors who appreciate them for their artistic or sentimental value, and not at bullion investors.
