Gold Twenty Grams Bar - Guan Gong, Coin from United Kingdom
CoinGold Twenty Grams Bar - Guan Gong

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:
Also referred to as Emperor Guan and Guan Yunchang, Guan Gong is worshipped by millions of people in China and around the world. Small shrines with statues of Guan Gong are a common sight in shops and restaurants as the god is seen as one of East Asia’s most popular symbols of loyalty, integrity and a warrior guardian who brings protection, wealth and luck.

Guan Gong’s distinctive features and signature blade have been detailed in gold, the precious metal long associated with good fortune. Tested to rigorous standards by an independent, quality assurance process, the Guan Gong gold bar will make a thoughtful gift or a secure investment for a friend or loved one for any special occasion. Drawing on more than 1,100 years of minting expertise, we have applied our craft to ensure a faithful representation of one of the most well-known deities in Chinese culture.

Designed in collaboration with Wei Shao, a senior lecturer in Chinese Studies at Cardiff University.
