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
Queen's Beast and Lunar collections.
The reality is that for most people looking to buy gold, Capital Gains Tax is not an issue and
therefore would be advised to buy other forms of gold which would represent a better return
on investment. Gold bars offer most individuals a significantly cheaper way to buy gold and
when buying gold for investment it is important to seek the very best value for money.
Gold coins or bars: which is the better buy?
Gold bars are 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 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.
We stock a wide range of gold bars at very small margins, ideal for investment. All our bars
are brand new, sealed 24 carat pure gold unless otherwise stated and are available in a range
of sizes from 1g up to 1kg. For most investors, our bestselling 1oz gold bars and 100g gold
bars would be the best options offering the perfect balance between value and flexibility.
We only stock bullion bars from world renown
gold refiners including
Umicore, PAMP, Metalor, and Heraeus.
All our bars are available with free fully insured next working day delivery.
