Silver Five Ounces (5 oz), Coin Type from United Kingdom - detailed information

Silver Five Ounces (5 oz), Coin Type from United Kingdom (issued 2012 - )
Coin TypeSilver Five Ounces (5 oz)

Like many other mints, the Royal Mint issues bullion coins in precious metals, having much higher intrinsic value than their face value. The five ounce (5 oz) silver coins are denominated as ten pounds (£10).

The 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 smaller denominations with the same reverse designs.
