GWYNFYNYDD GOLD MINE

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.
