There are 3 ways to own physical bullion
We exclusively stock investment-grade bullion of the highest quality and above 90% purity and thereby exempt from VAT in the UK.
Bullion gold coins
Ideal for investors who anticipate selling part of or their entire portfolio in the short to medium term. Gold coins typically offer far greater flexibility of purchase and liquidity than gold bars. All the gold coins that we offer are produced by a sovereign government’s mint, carrying the status of legal tender. As a result, gold coins are exempt from both VAT and CGT.
Bullion gold bars
Suitable for investors looking to purchase large amounts of gold. Whilst easier to store, gold bars offer less flexibility and greater illiquidity than gold coins. Gold bars are produced by private mints. They do not qualify as legal tender and are thus subject to CGT.
Graded gold coins
Graded gold coins are nearly always more valuable than ungraded coins. Ungraded coins carry a level of risk as there is no guarantee of grade, condition or authenticity. All the gold coins that we offer are produced by a sovereign government’s mint, carrying the status of legal tender. As a result, gold coins are exempt from both VAT and CGT.
Why gold prices rise during times of economic uncertainty and market turbulence
Throughout the 21st century, a few trends have been clearly and consistently established when property and stocks underperform, the price of gold rises, as investors and institutions turn to gold as an “insurance policy” to recoup losses realised on other investments.
Ask any investor who suffered during the Financial Crisis of 2007/2008
They will most likely acknowledge that looking back, 2007 would have been a great time to invest in gold. The price of gold has almost trebled since before the financial crisis, rising from £452 to £1295 today.
Do you sell investment-grade gold?
Yes. We offer a wide range of investment-grade gold bullion coins and bars at highly competitive prices. Our rates are regularly adjusted against other leading dealers, delivering on our promise to consistently offer the best gold bullion rates in the UK market.
Are bullion products VAT-free?
Since 1st January 2000, all investment grade gold is VAT exempt across the EU, as per notice 201/21a, the full details of which are available on HMRC’s website. Certain gold bullion and numismatic coins are also exempt from CGT.
Should I buy gold coins or bars?
Whilst essentially a personal preference, there are certain established advantages of coins vs. bars, and vice versa. Whilst the significantly larger size of gold bullion bars makes them a superior choice for holding large quantities of gold, Gold bullion coins remain by far a more popular option for individual investors.
When should I invest in precious metals?
A look at the history of gold offers a couple of clear and consistent lessons: the price of gold begins to soar in times of economic distress and political unrest. Which sounds a lot like right now. And yes, objectively, right now would be quite a good time to buy gold.
