This is the fifth coin in The Royal Mint's Shengxiao Collection which was introduced in 2014.
British lunar coins are a great alternative to sovereigns and Britannias. Struck in 24 carat gold, these one ounce coins are a popular choice for investors looking for quality gold bullion at low premiums above the spot price of gold. Investment gold is tax free in Great Britain and the lunar coins have the added advantage of being exempt from capital gains tax, making them particularly attractive for investors resident in the United Kingdom.
The fifth definitive UK coin portrait of Elizabeth II by Jody Clark is surrounded by a new guilloche background. This design will help to protect the coin from damage and scratching. The coin bears the inscription:
ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D · 100 POUNDS
Featuring the terrier engraving by British-Chinese artist by Wuon-Gean Ho, the reverse bears the inscription:
YEAR OF THE DOG 2018 1OZ FINE GOLD 999.9
|Alloy||24 carat gold|
|Obverse Designer||Jody Clark|
|Reverse Designer||Wuon-Gean Ho|
