Designed in 2016 to mark 200 years since the de facto introduction of the gold standard – tying the value of the British pound to that of gold – the Gold Standard coin is an exclusive offering from The Royal Mint, London. Featuring the work of Royal Mint graphic designer Dominique Evans on its reverse, and Jody Clark's official portrait of Her Majesty The Queen on the obverse, the Gold Standard coin is offered as a one-ounce bullion coin struck in 999.9 fine gold.
The implementation of the gold standard came as part of the same series of actions that saw the iconic Sovereign reintroduced after many years out of production. The Royal Mint, of course, has been working with and striking gold for hundreds and hundreds of years. And arguably the road to Britain’s official adoption of a gold standard stretches deep into that history – such as when Sir Isaac Newton issued a report that led to the gold ‘guinea’ coin being assigned a fixed value.
Brittan's gold standard was written into law in 1821, with several other countries following their lead including Canada. Britain ended up abandoning it altogether in 1931.
