A round of gold produced from Scotgold PLC’s (LON:SGZ) Cononish mine near Tyndrum, Stirlingshire is to be given pride of place in Glasgow University’s Hunterian museum.

Professor David Gaimster, director of The Hunterian, will be presented with the round tomorrow by Graham Donaldson, a major shareholder in Scotgold.

Donaldson and his wife sponsored the purchase of Scottish Gold Round Number 11 after the first 10 rounds were sold at an auction in November.

Richard Gray, Scotgold’s chief executive, said: "We are delighted that Graham and Christine [Donaldson] have generously decided to mark the occasion of Scotland's first commercially mined gold by sponsoring this contribution to The Hunterian's impressive collection. 

“We believe that gold mining has the potential to be a significant industrial sector and generator of employment in Scotland and this unique piece marks a significant milestone on this journey."

Professor David Gaimster added said the gold round would be added to its collection of Scottish gold coins and medals.

Each of the 12 gold rounds is stamped with the Scottish Gold Mark of the stag's head and bears a unique serial number corresponding to a chain of custody system certified by the Edinburgh Assay Office.
