Gold Coins

The 2021 Gold Sovereign marks a unique moment in Royal and British history.

The Sovereign has marked many important moments for Her Majesty The Queen throughout the years, and now the coin of the monarch features two special elements in celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s 95th birthday.

A unique privy mark appears on the classic golden coin, and its milled edge has precisely 95 mills, each symbolising a year of The Queen’s life.

Royal Mint Gold Bullion

The Royal Mint gold bullion website was merged in 2020 from a separate site into royalmint.com

Their product offerings include gold bullion coins, gold bullion bars and digital gold.

DigiGold allows you to purchase in fractional quantities that suit you down to the finest figure, allowing you to invest as much or as little as you like.

Bought by monetary value rather than a fixed weight, purchased gold is then stored in The Vault.

This option also offers additional flexibility with the opportunity to convert a specific amount of your pension fund into gold, rather than the fixed sizes offered by individual bars.

How to buy Gold Coins from the UK Post Office?

There is a long-standing relationship between the uk Royal Mint and Royal Mail Post Offices.

Notably First Day Covers where coins and stamps are put together to make attractive offerings for both in a set.

You may not know, but you can also buy Royal Mint coins through some Post Office branches. The packaging may be different to what you get from the Royal Mint online shop directly since they sometime add the Post Office Logo. To find the nearest branch to where you live, check this list of stockists.

Buy Gold Coins UK

You can buy gold coins in different sizes to suit your budget. The most common is the one ounce gold coin but there are often smaller sizes available such as a half-ounce gold coin or quarter-ounce gold coin.

Are UK Gold Coins a Good Investment?

A lot of the UK websites selling gold coins state that legal tender gold coins are VAT-free in the UK, and also capital gains tax exempt.

VAT Exempt Gold Coins

List of gold coins considered as investment gold coins for VAT exemption under VAT Notice 701/21A.

Definition of an investment gold coin is an investment gold coin is either a Gold coin minted after 1800 that:

  • is of a purity of not less than 900 thousandths
  • is, or has been, legal tender in its country of origin
  • is of a description of coin that is normally sold at a price that does not exceed 180% of the open market value of the gold contained in the coin

See the UK Government VAT Notice 701/21A website for full details.

See the Royal Mint website page on VAT law relevant to their products. It says:

All gold bullion sold by The Royal Mint including The Sovereign & Britannia ranges are VAT free for non VAT registered private individuals.

Capitals Gains Tax (CGT) Exempt Gold Coins

UK Sovereign and Britannia coins are capital gains tax (CGT) exempt for UK residents, due to their status as UK legal tender.

Check the UK Government CGT website for full details and updates to this information. It is subject to change at any time.
