Trial Of The Pyx, Amendment 2012

Recommended Posts

What on earth is the "Trial of the Pyx"?

Are there really one kilogram gold coins issued by the Royal mint?

This Order amends the Trial of the Pyx Order 1998 (S.I. 1998/1764), so as to provide for the trial of kilogram coins issued by the Royal Mint and to make minor amendments to the conduct of the trial in respect of certain coins. The Coinage (Measurement) Act 2011 (c.17) made a minor amendment to the Coinage Act 1971 (c.24) so as to facilitate the production of coins of one kilogram or more.

They minted a few for the Olympics, they are legal tender denominated as £1,000.

Would be interesting to know what happens to those coins that are inspected...

If the Mint is to issue a new type of coinage not currently legally permitted, then naturally the law has to be changed to allow this new coin to be issued as legal tender.

I think Canada is the master of stupidly high denomination coins?
