Premiums - Consider the product premiums which will vary. Gold bars are usually cheaper in sizes of 1oz and above, whereas those who prefer small units of gold, coins like sovereigns offer better value for money.
Capital Gains Tax - Also, consider CGT. British sovereigns & Britannias are exempt from CGT due to their status as UK legal tender. However, currently we can all realise net gains of £10,600 across all investments in a tax year without being liable for CGT, therefore for smaller investors CGT may not be a concern. For larger UK investors sovereigns & Britannias are popular. Click here to read more about CGT on gold.
Value vs Flexibility - The large bars attracting smaller margins are not always the best option with smaller units allowing individuals greater flexibility. The ideal balance between value and flexibility for most are the 100g bars and the 1oz bars or coins.
