Each coin is minted to 999.9 purity gold, containing 1 troy ounce of 24-carat gold. Coins will arrive in official tubes for orders in multiples of ten. Like the other 1oz gold coins in the series, the Maid Marian coin possesses a face value of £100, qualifying the coin as legal tender – meaning any profits made when selling the coins in the future are completely free from Capital Gains Tax. The Royal Mint has produced these coins to bullion finish, deeming them ideal for investment due to their lower production cost.
The Mint’s head designer Jody Clarke has done a wonderful job with her depiction of Maid Marian taking cover behind one of Sherwood Forest’s trees. She carries a quiver of arrows and a bow, ready for action.
The obverse features Clarke’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, familiar since 2015.
This coin combines beautiful design, great production values, collectibility and a tax efficient investment.
