The Royal Mint’s Bullion division is celebrating its partnership with the U.S.-based global distributor Manfra, Tordella and Brookes (MTB) with the launch of a Royal Mint “first”—the classic Britannia design struck for the first time on a tenth-ounce bullion platinum coin, which will be available exclusively through MTB.
The coins have been struck in 999.5 per cent platinum and are minted to bullion standard and carry the U.K. government assurance of weight and purity. A further addition is the textured “guilloche” finish that appears on the obverse of the coin, surrounding the portrait of the Queen by Jody Clark.
“The Royal Mint is very pleased to be working with Manfra, Tordella & Brookes for the global distribution of our classic tenth ounce platinum coin,” said Chris Howard, mint director of bullion.
“We are delighted by the opportunity to work closely with The Royal Mint, a longstanding industry leader, on this new and innovative product,” said Scott Spitzer, CEO of MTB.
“On behalf of the MKS PAMP Group, Manfra, Tordella & Brookes is very pleased to be the global distributor for The Royal Mint’s first ever release of a one-tenth platinum Britannia,” said MTB President Roy Friedman. “The coin will offer collectors and investors the opportunity to participate in the platinum market by purchasing this new addition to The Royal Mint’s Britannia series of legal tender bullion coins.”
