With August seeing a 127% rise in demand for bullion coins year-on-year, the Royal Mint has released a new coin into its the Queen’s Beasts range.

The White Lion of Mortimer was released on Monday and provides another option for investors looking to invest their money into precious metals. As is common during times of economic uncertainty, there has been a rise in people looking to invest in precious metals and, according to the Royal Mint, August was one of the most popular months on record for precious metal sales.

The White Lion of Mortimer

An original design by Royal Mint designer Jody Clark, The White Lion of Mortimer bullion coin is available in one-ounce gold, quarter-ounce gold and two-ounce silver. It represents one of 10 heraldic Beasts that form the popular The Queen’s Beasts collection, a series inspired by ancient symbols of power and identity. The coins are Capital Gains Tax exempt for UK investors, and individual investors who purchase them from Royal Mint Bullion can opt for home delivery or they can choose to store them in The Royal Mint Vault.

Nicola Howell, consumer director at The Royal Mint, said: “We are very excited to expand our bullion range with an addition to the famous Queen’s Beasts collection, offering another investment opportunity at a time when demand for bullion coins is so high.”
