Investing in any form of gold has been a popular choice for many people for hundreds of years now because gold has always been a valuable commodity across the world. In fact, you will find that gold is a more valuable and stable commodity than paper money, as paper money can fluctuate in value during economic crisis, and the value of paper money is constantly changing. 

While paper money can lose stability and decrease in value in times of economic crisis, gold will retain its value and stability, making it a great investment choice for many. 

However, with so many options available for gold investment, the tricky part can be knowing which type of gold to purchase and how much to purchase. The most common types of gold used for investment purposes are gold coins and gold bars. 

Here at Gold Investments, we can assist you with growing your gold investment portfolio, as we not only offer expert advice but also provide a wide range of different gold coins and gold bars for purchase.  

So, if you are wondering whether gold bars are a good investment, or you would prefer to invest in gold coins, simply reach out to our team today and we will be happy to help. Call us on 020 7283 7752

Are Gold Coins a Good Investment? 

Many people these days are looking to make solid investments for their portfolio, as these investments can protect them financially in times of economic crisis. While some people choose to invest in property, there are others that choose to invest in gold. But is buying gold coins a good investment?  

Overall, gold has always been a solid investment choice, and gold coins are no different. Unlike paper money, gold can hold its value in times of economic crisis, and gold is a valuable commodity across the world. As such, gold, and by extension gold coins, do make a good investment. 

However, when you are making any investment, you will wish to purchase at the lowest price possible, as this can potentially increase your return on investment in the future. The lower your price point at purchase, the more you can stand to make in the future, and this extends to gold coins. 

There are two factors which can significantly increase the price of your gold coins, and these are VAT and capital gains tax. With most gold coins, you will need to pay tax and VAT on top of the gold value, which can exponentially increase your purchase price and lead to lower return on investment. 

However, there are some gold coins that make a better investment choice than others, and these are gold coins produced by The Royal Mint. In the UK, these gold coins are exempt from both VAT and capital gains tax, making the initial investment price lower. 

Are Gold Bars Worth Buying?  

If you don’t wish to invest in gold coins, there is another option available, and this is gold bars. Gold bars make a great investment for long-term investors and those wishing to purchase a gift for someone else. There are many different gold bar options, ranging in size and price, and we offer gold bars at low premiums.  

Plus, our gold bars are pure 24-carat gold (999.9) and manufactured by London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) approved refiners. As such, you can trust in the quality of the gold bars and their reliability as investment purchases when you buy gold bars from us.

What Gold Coins Are Good for Investment?

If you are looking into gold coins for investment, you will want to make sure you are making the right choice for your investment portfolio. Well, almost all British gold coins produced by The Royal Mint are exempt from VAT and capital gains tax, meaning that these gold coins are available for investors at a lower price point. 

This is because you won’t pay VAT and tax on top of the gold value. And, when it comes to investments, the lower your gold is purchased for, the higher your return on investment can be. 

So, if you wish to buy gold coins for investment purposes, you will want to keep your costs down to potentially increase your return on investment. This is why we recommend purchasing gold coins produced by The Royal Mint, and these would be the Sovereign and the Britannia gold coins. At Gold Investments, we have a selection of these gold coins for sale on our site, with our Sovereign and Britannia coins including: 

  • 1 oz Britannia 2023 
  • 1 oz Britannia (Mixed Dates) 
  • ¼ oz Gold Britannia 
  • 1/10 oz Gold Britannia 
  • Sovereign (Various Dates) 
  • Sovereign (2022) 

However, we do offer other gold coin options should you prefer to purchase coins that aren’t produced by The Royal Mint. We have gold coins produced by both The South African Mint and The Royal Canadian Mint too, so there is sure to be an option to suit your investment needs.
