Why buy bullion coins?

Modern bullion coins allow investors to own investment grade gold (between 0.90 and 0.9999 fineness) legal tender coins at a small premium to the spot price of gold as quoted on the markets. The value of bullion coins and bars is determined almost solely by the price of gold and thus follows the bullion price.

Gold and silver are available in the form of bullion coins, minted in the UK, the US, in Canada, South Africa, Austria, Australia, China and other countries. Most bullion coins are minted in 1/10oz, 1/4oz, 1/2oz & 1oz form (and some can be bought in 2oz, 10oz & 1 kilo). However, one ounce gold bullion coins such as Krugerrands or Britannias are by far the most popular for both small investors and high net worth individuals who see the advantages of owning legal tender bullion coins, either in their possession or in depositories, and recognise the advantages of the divisibility afforded by them.

Buying investment grade gold bullion is VAT exempt in the UK, additionally, due to their status as British Legal tender, Sovereigns and Gold Britannia’s are exempt from capital gains tax (CGT).


Should I include Gold as part of my investment portfolio?

Private investors today are faced with a bewildering number of options when it comes to finding the right home for their money. Advice on how, when and where to invest is available from hundreds of different sources. But the need to maintain a well diversified savings/investment portfolio is advice with which all competent financial advisors would agree.

Choosing the right mix for a portfolio depends wholly on the circumstances and objectives of the individual investor. Whatever criteria are selected, however, there is probably no better recommendation than the portfolio strategy endorsed by Swiss bankers, whose classic advice is to hold at least 5% in gold.
