I have a Promotional Letter from Aurum Designs Limited dated 21 July 1982:

When asked about examples of our work in solid gold we have always dissuaded customers whose main interest was the metal itself as an investment. Uninteresting as they may be, lumps of bullion and Krugerrands serve that purpose better.
There have, however, been two recent developments to note. The first, the extension of VAT to gold in all its forms, means that gold artefacts no longer suffer a price disadvantage in this respect; the second is the low price of gold which has been prevailing. No one can predict the future, but this company has built up its working stock of gold at recent and, in our opinion, very attractive prices.
Because of this, we are able to make available twenty-five Royal Scallop Dishes in solid gold at a price which will be held firm for a week. They will form part of the edition of 250.

(I have yet to see one example of these in Gold)
In solid, hallmarked 18 carat gold, the dish has a minimum weight of 5 oz. Troy or 156 grammes and will be supplied at a price, which includes VAT, of  £1780 each.
Orders at this price will be accepted only if they are received at 7 King Street, by post or telephone, on or before 28 July 1982. The enclosed order form may be used, but please mark it 'Solid Gold'.

(I have not come across one - 
If anyone has an example of this one in gold can you please let me know)
