Coinciding with the holy month of Ramadan, the British Royal Mint issued a gold ingot bearing the image of the Holy Kaaba.

The ingot issued by the Royal Mint weighs 20 grams, its price is 1119.10 pounds sterling, and it is contained in a protective package of an Islamic nature, and therefore it can be presented as a gift during Ramadan or Eid Al-Fitr.

As part of the launch, the Royal Mint donated three plates to be auctioned off at charity events, to raise funds for victims of the devastating earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria last month.

Director of Precious Metals at the Royal Mint, Andrew Dickey, said, “The month of Ramadan is a time of giving, so we are proud to support Islamic Relief, a leading Islamic charity, by donating gold Kaaba bars on three occasions in the UK and raising over £9,000.

He explained, "Drawing on more than 1,100 years of minting experience, we have applied our expert craftsmanship to create a beautiful representation of the Holy Kaaba, the holiest place on earth for Muslims."

He continued, "The Kaaba ingot made of gold, which is contained in a beautiful protective packaging of an Islamic nature, offers a special gift, allowing our customers to present a valuable gift of gold during Eid Al-Fitr, or as a safe investment by owning 999.9 grams of pure gold.”
