“Since the dip in the price of gold we have seen increased demand for our gold bullion coins from the major coin markets, and this presently shows no sign of abating,” the U.K. mint commented yesterday. “The Royal Mint continues to supply to its customers and is increasing production to accommodate the higher demand.”
