Brand Snapshot | The Royal Mint Launches £5,000 Christmas Cracker Set

Sick of fortune-telling fish and plastic junk in your Christmas crackers? The Royal Mint has revealed their brand-new gifting range which includes a luxurious set of the Christmas essential, containing items made of solid gold bullion.

The premium gold gifts, some of which are made from hallmarked Royal Mint bullion include a 1oz gold bar, Sovereign coin, diamond necklace, cufflinks and Britannia 2018 UK Quarter-Ounce Gold Proof Coin. The set is also available in a silver version, costing £500, which includes gifts such as sterling silver cufflinks, key fob and honey drizzler.

The crackers are part of The Royal Mint’s first ever gifting range, a new direction for the 1,000-year-old organisation. The complete range will initially include a total of 58 unique pieces, ranging from a sixpence spoon set, to silver hallmarked cufflinks, and an adorable teddy bear. Other products include silk scarves and an upcoming range of wallets and other leather goods.

The collection also includes two unique gifts inspired by one of the most loved Christmas tales of all time, The Nutcracker. The Royal Mint’s 2018 advent calendar tells The Nutcracker story, with a chocolate coin behind each window. Hidden behind the final window is The Royal Mint’s official Nutcracker Christmas £5 coin. Shoppers can also treat their loved ones to The Royal Mint’s Nutcracker Christmas card, which comes with the Nutcracker Christmas £5 coin encased in it for a card to keep and treasure.

The range is just one of the ways The Royal Mint is modernising and adapting to suit its customers, without compromising on the quality they have come to expect.

Lisa Stevens, Head of Gifting at The Royal Mint, said: “With over 1,000 years of coin-making history, The Royal Mint is recognised worldwide for its heritage and craftsmanship. The launch of Royal Mint Gifts presents an exciting time for us.

“Our new collection includes some premium gold and silver pieces which we believe will make the perfect gift this Christmas and be treasured for years to come.”

Gifts from the collection start from £10 and are exclusively from www.royalmint.com.
