City barrister gives mint advice.

LIVERPOOL barrister Francis McEntegart has advised the company behind Barack Obama's commemorative gold coins.

Mr McEntegart, of Chime Legal Services, was engaged by Birmingham's Winston Elizabeth and Windsor (WEW) for advice on image rights and intellectual property matters, which differ between the UK and the US.

He said: "We have been setting out detailed guidance for our clients and the prestigious Birmingham Mint which produces these coins.

"There have been some important cases in this area, most notably the Princess Diana Memorial Fund matter and the Eddie Irvine dispute."

McEntegart's law company also provided online terms and conditions and contracts to allow WEW to trade properly through its online shop and comply with the required European regulations and Data Protection Act.

WEW are striking 100,000 gold-plated coins, each worth $40.

A further 100 solid gold coins are also being made and will be sold for $4,000.
