Gold Twentieth-Ounce (1/20 oz), Coin Type from United Kingdom (issued 2013 - )
Coin TypeGold Twentieth-Ounce (1/20 oz)

Like many other mints, the Royal Mint issues bullion coins in precious metals, having much higher intrinsic value than their face value. The one-twentieth ounce (1/20 oz) gold coins are denominated as One Pound (£1) and have been issued since 2013.

These coins are legal tender but are not intended for circulation. They are targeted at bullion investors or collectors who appreciate the special editions as pieces of art. The coins are typically "one-year" types usually issued in parallel with other denominations with the same reverse designs.
