Buy Gold Sovereigns

As semi-numismatic coins, certain Sovereign coins can attract demand not only from bullion investors, but also from coin collectors looking for a rare or particularly interesting coin to add to their collection. These coins can often come at inflated premiums due to this additional demand. In fact, an extremely rare Sovereign became the most expensive British coin of all time in 2020 when a numismatic fanatic paid more than £1 million for a 1937 Edward VII Proof Sovereign.

Investors choose to buy gold Sovereigns, as a small unit of gold, with both VAT and CGT benefits. Known the world over, these coins are respected, recognised and treasured, making them an excellent choice for investment purposes.
