HC Deb 13 March 1958 vol 584 c82W
Mr. Llewellyn

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many golden sovereigns have been minted in 1957 and since; for what purpose; and at what profit.

Mr. Amory

As regards the first and second parts of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. and gallant Member for Arundel and Shoreham (Captain Kerby) on 11th March; no sovereigns have been minted so far this year. The minting of sovereigns does not yield a profit.
