Royal Mint launches gold bar so Muslims can ‘give the gift of gold during Eid’

The Royal Mint has created a gold bar ahead of Ramadan so customers can "give the precious gift of gold" during Eid al-Fitr.

Created in consultation with the Muslim Council of Wales and designed by Emma Noble, the 20g bar features the Kaaba, a site considered by Muslims to be the most sacred on Earth.

Andrew Dickey, Director of Precious Metals at the Royal Mint, said: “Ramadan is a time of giving, so we’re proud to have supported Islamic Relief, a leading Muslim charity, through the donation of Kaaba gold bars at three UK events, raising upwards of £9,000.”
