Royal Mint bullion Sovereigns

The Sovereign is one of the best known bullion coins in the world, and often called the flagship product of the Royal Mint. The current style of Sovereign has been in production since 1817, giving it an additional historic interest. We stock brand new bullion Sovereign coins at low margins ideal for investment, directly sourced from the Royal Mint's refinery in south Wales. The Sovereigns are 22-carat gold, and sport the traditional St George and the Dragon design. A Sovereign weighs 7.98 grams and contains exactly 7.3224 grams of pure gold.

In addition to new Sovereigns, we also offer mixed year bullion Sovereigns which represent better value for money. Due to their relatively small size, gold Sovereigns offer investors great flexibility and are one of the most recognisable bullion coins in the world. Discounts are available based on quantity.

Royal Mint Britannia coins

The Britannia has become the UK's official 1oz bullion coin, launched in response to the growing popularity of the Krugerrand. We stock both gold and silver Britannia coins at low premiums, making them ideal for investment.

The 1oz gold Britannia coin is 24 carat purity and contains exactly 31.10348 grams of pure gold - one troy ounce. This is a new coin specification in place since the 2013 gold Britannia, while all older versions of the coin were 22 carat.

Gold Britannia coins typically represent better value for money than Sovereigns due to their larger size, and offer investors a good balance between value and flexibility. Discounts are available based on quantity.

Royal Mint Commemorative Series

In addition to it's more focused bullion offerings like the Britannia and Sovereign, the Royal Mint also produces a number of commemorative and collectable series. These offer investors the same high quality bullion coins, but with limited numbers, and changing designs.

Some of the popular series we stock include the Tudor Beasts series, and the Myths & Legends series.

Why buy Royal Mint bullion coins?

Due to their status as British legal tender, Royal Mint bullion coins are Capital Gains Tax free.
They are ideal for wealthy British individuals looking to spend £50,000 or more who already
pay Capital Gains Tax, or for those who anticipate making large gains on their gold, therefore
having to pay CGT in the future.

The CGT exemption applies to Sovereigns, Britannias, and special series coins such as the
Tudor Beast and Myths & Legends collections.

The tax benefits can help maximise profits when you sell you coin, ensuring that all proceeds
remain yours. When coupled with investment gold's exemption from VAT, this make Royal Mint
bullion coins a great way to make a cost-effective investment.

Gold coins or bars: which is the better buy?

Gold bars are often the cheaper to buy as they are cheaper to make, simply put. Gold coins must
undergo a much more lengthy and intricate manufacturing process. In contrast, bars are
manufactured as cost effectively as possible, with less time and expense taken up on elements
such as design, which might add no extra value to the coin. With this in mind, gold bars are a
better way to invest in gold for the majority of investors.
