Natural welsh gold

Welsh Gold

From: National Museum Cardiff


Welsh gold is very rare and is the gold traditionally used in the wedding rings of the British Royal Family. The ingot of pure welsh gold that was presented to Her Majesty the Queen on her 60th birthday (April 1986), can be seen on display in the National Waterfront Museum, Swansea.
