The 2017 follow up release to the 5 Ounce Mauquoy Mint Big 5 Lion that was a smashing success.  Our allocation of this 1 KILOGRAM and truly "King of the Jungle" version is very limited due to the extremely small mintage so act fast if you want a chance at this extraordinary coin utilizing both traditional hand and modern machine fabrication techniques.  This issue has a mintage of only 150 units worldwide.  We're expecting an extremely fast sellout.

Diana died in a car crash in Paris on 31 August 1997. She was exceedingly present in the media and was celebrated for her charity work worldwide.
