“In a year that has seen investors flock to own precious metals in the wake of the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are delighted to be adding to our range of platinum bullion products. Demand for our products this year has been unprecedented, and we expect this strong interest to continue into next year.”
The launch of the 2021 White Lion of Mortimer is not the only platinum offering from The Royal Mint this year, which has also seen the release of its Royal Arms coin. Again, the Royal Arms is a one-ounce platinum bullion coin struck in .9995 fine platinum. The Royal Mint’s 2021 one-ounce platinum bullion coin from its Britannia series is due to launch on 14 December 2020.
