If you've got a cool £40,000 in spare cash then you might want to consider spending it on the Royal Wedding Gold Kilo coin that has been issued by the Royal Mint to celebrate the Royal Wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton. You will have to be quick though as there are only 40 being produced!
The Royal Mint says it's 'A remarkable 100mm in diameter and struck in 22 carat gold to superior quality, its commemorative design - a conjoint portrait of the happy couple set against a romantic interpretation of the Abbey’s beautiful rose window with a surrounding inscription recording the important details - can be appreciated to the full.'
'It is, indeed, a coin above all other coins. As the price of gold rises almost daily, these exclusive issues represent a rare, fabulous opportunity to buy a full kilo of gold, embellished with the Royal Wedding design and expertly crafted by Royal Mint engravers.'
Personally signed by the artist Gordon Summers and authorised by Alderney with a £1000 denomination it contains a full kilo of fine Gold. Visit www.royalmint.com for further information.
