A strictly limited edition set - only 90 one-ounce Nobles issued worldwide
This set comprises four coins - the 1/10 ounce, 1/4 ounce, 1/2 ounce and 1 ounce Noble. Not all sizes are issued every year, which makes this set highly collectable. Whilst Nobles are legal tender they do not carry a face value - just like the gold Krugerrand, they are legal tender to the value of their precious metal content, the 1-ounce coin contains 1 ounce of platinum, the quarter ounce 1/4 of an ounce. Combined together this set contains 1.85 ounces of platinum.
Platinum is even rarer than gold and traditionally symbolises love and endurance. The release of this set in platinum underlines the significance of the Queen's 90th birthday milestone. A popular purchase for serious platinum collectors around the world and a powerful addition to any coin portfolio.
