Rosland Capital Adds New 1.5 oz Lewis Chess Piece Gold Coin to British Museum Collection
The latest addition to Rosland’s coin collection created in collaboration with the British Museum is this gold Queen - one of the famous Lewis Chess Pieces, and one of the most characterful, with her troubled look and drinking horn.
On the obverse side of the coin is Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the year of minting - 2022.
These new coins are .9999 fine gold, 40mm diameter, 1.5 Troy oz., legal tender proofs, minted by Swiss-based PAMP SA, one of the world’s finest producers of precious metal coins.
The packaging shows the back of another of the chess pieces - the Bishop - and includes a Certiﬁcate Number, statement of metal ﬁneness, weight, proof quality statement, and the signature of the accredited independent Swiss assayer at PAMP.
