Tenth Ounce Gold Royal Arms : Pre Owned (Best Value)
Gold 1/10oz mixed-year Royal Arms bullion coins from The Royal Mint.
The Royal Arms
You'll see the coat of arms of the United Kingdom on everything from government buildings to jubilee souvenirs: it’s instantly recognisable.
An enduring symbol, not only of royalty but of Britain itself, the royal arms feature a central shield surrounded by a garter, guarded by a pair of heraldic supporters: a lion for England and a unicorn for Scotland. Below, a scroll reads 'DIEU ET MON DROIT' - 'God and my right' - the royal motto.
The arms have featured on numerous coins down the years but its a fresh interpretation that appears on a new range of bullion coins from The Royal Mint.
A New Bullion Coin
Introduced in 2019, The Royal Arms range is a brand new bullion collection, celebrating this most enduring of British symbols. Like the Royal Mint's popular Britannias this range puts a new spin on an age old idea.
Since the first issue, Royal Arms coins have featured a reverse design by heraldic artist Timothy Noad which adds national flowers and a large crown to the classic heraldic achievement. The date appears above the crown and the composition below. In this case: '1/10OX FINE GOLD 999.9'.
The reverse of these coins feature Jody Clark's fifth definitive effigy of Her Majesty the Queen with an attractive textured background. In the case of the tenth ounce gold edition the legend reads: 'ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D · 10 POUNDS ·'.
1/10 Ounce Gold Coin
