    The story behind the Royal Mint's first kilo coins

    Date created: 2011-12-01

    In 2008 the Royal Mint's Olympic Coin Programme shared its vision to create the first ever UK coin weighing one Kilogram. To do this required a change to UK Legislation, specifically an amendment to the 40-year-old 1971 Coinage Act, a clause which limited the weight to which UK coins could be made. The launch of these two magnificent UK kilo coins, the first kilo coins of the realm, is the culmination of a journey which saw the introduction of this new primary legislation, itself further evidence that at the highest levels the UK not only supports the aspirations of London 2012, but is prepared to make legislative history in the process.
