British coins are among the most sought after in the world and the commemorative English Rose 1/2oz gold coin makes a wonderful addition to your collection or investment portfolio. Boasting a high purity content of 99.99%, the rare and exclusive coins promise an excellent return on investment.
Gold has been the fall back investment for bullion traders for centuries, and has changed in the present day. With so many circulated coins on the market, investing in gold bullion coins is easy and practical.
However, many coins manufactured throughout a year are standard mint issue and readily available anywhere in the world. You may be able to buy them for a reasonable price, but unless you hold on to standard issue coins for the long-term, you won’t make a worthwhile profit.
The English Rose 1/2 oz coins on the other hand are rare collector’s items and as such are more likely to fetch a higher price when the time comes to sell. Originally produced in 2010, the English Rose coins are one-of-a-kind and well worth the investment.
As the name suggests, the English Rose gold bullion coin is distinguished by its Rose design on the reverse side. The Rose has long been associated with England since the War of the Roses in the 15th Century.
The exquisite design is depicted in stencil effect with the words HALF TROY OUNCE 999 FINE GOLD” engraved along the bottom rim underneath the feature image.
The obverse side also features a unique design. The image is of the British Isles as it would appear on a map rather than the traditional profile of Queen Elizabeth II. Underneath the image are the initials BM, indicating the English Rose coins are minted at the Birmingham Mint in Central England.
The rose first appeared on English coins during the reign of King Edward IV. Red and white roses were already in use to represent the houses of York and Lancaster, two dynastic families who would ultimately war over the right to the British monarchy.
The inclusion of the rose on the 15th Century coins were a way of increasing the value of English coins and increasing the value of currency across the land. Because gold was selling for a profit in Europe, traders were exporting all their gold Noble coins to sell on the mainland. The new coins were known as the Rose Nobel, but later changed to English Rose.
