Traditionally, gold produced in Wales has been used for wedding rings and other items by the Royal family.
In 1986 a kilogram
ingot of 99% pure Gwynfynydd gold was presented to Her
Majesty The Queen to commemorate her 60th birthday. At
the same time a smaller ingot was presented to the Duke of York.
This will ensure that the tradition of Welsh gold wedding rings
for the Royal family can continue well into the future.
