Gold Gram Bar - Britannia, Coin from United Kingdom - detailed information

Gold Gram Bar - Britannia, Coin from United Kingdom
CoinGold Gram Bar - Britannia

The Royal Mint of the United Kingdom, which makes the country's circulating coinage, is also very active in the bullion coinage space and issues many bullion coins which are legal tender.

Additionally, it also makes bullion which is not legal tender and is targeted at investors and not at coin collectors - such as this one.

The Royal Mint says about this product:
"The gold bar features a re-imagined Britannia, created by artist Jody Clark. For thousands of years Britannia has been a symbol of strength and stability, as enduring as the custom of giving gold at personal and cultural celebrations. Today, Britannia is the modern face of British bullion, instantly recognisable all over the world and a trusted symbol of the quality of British minting.

Containing 1g of 999.9 fine gold, this bar is a welcome addition to investment portfolios looking to attain financial stability for loved ones and dependants. This bar is presented in secure, Britannia-branded blister packaging for safe transportation and storage."

The type of packaging described above is referred to as "in assay" by bullion dealers. There are several varieties, with some intended for gift packaging dedicated to a special occasion.

The bar is "minted" (struck using minting techniques similar to a coin, and not cast in the way that larger investment products are).
