The design for the Gold Standard bullion coin first appeared in 2016 to mark 200 years since the introduction of the gold standard – when the value of the British pound was formally tied to that of gold. The gold standard was adopted as part of a series of changes that led to The Sovereign being restored to British coinage.
The journey to Britain’s adoption of a gold standard can be traced through the history of the Royal Mint. As Master of the Mint, Sir Isaac Newton issued a report in 1717 that led to the gold guinea being assigned a fixed value. Following the Coinage Act of 1816, Britain’s gold standard was adopted, and it was the first system of its type in the world. Several countries with large economies followed the British lead, including Canada, the United States and Germany. However, the United Kingdom finally abandoned the gold standard in 1931.
For 2022, the Gold Standard bullion coin features the original reverse design by Dominique Evans, a senior designer at the Royal Mint, and Jody Clark’s coinage portrait of Her Majesty the Queen on the obverse.
The Gold Standard 2022 coin is available in one-ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce fine gold editions.
These coins are approved for purchase in a Precious Metals IRA.
