Gold Twenty Grams Bar - Ganesh, Coin from United Kingdom
CoinGold Twenty Grams Bar - Ganesh

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:
Referred to as "The Lord of Beginnings", Ganesh is one of the best-known gods of the Hindu faith. As the god of luck, new beginnings and wisdom, Ganesh is often seen at the entrances of temples and sacred buildings, acting as a guard and protector. This year, for the first time, the son of Shiva and Parvati will also be appearing on a 20g gold minted bullion bar from The Royal Mint.

Ganesh’s unmistakable features have been beautifully rendered in gold, the precious metal associated with good fortune for thousands of years. This new gold bar serves as an ideal gift for a friend or loved one for any special occasion including Diwali, the sacred festival of lights.
