Gold for millennia has been a secure store of wealth, a global currency and a sought-after metal. There are many reasons to buy gold including to diversify an investment portfolio, to hedge against inflation and a banking crisis, for long-term capital gain, etc. If you’d like to research the topic further, here are some of our topic insights about reasons to buy gold (1oz coins in particular):
Collectable gold coins attract a premium, over and above the global spot price, here are some reasons why:
Collectors tend to keep their gold coins for a long-time (often decades) and maybe pass them down in a will. For this reason, the collector’s market is (frequently) ignorant of the market price for gold and will retain their prized collection irrespective. For the reasons given the market spot price for gold will always be lower, this is because of the collectability premium.
Benefitting from being legal tender in the UK, these 1oz gold coins are both VAT free and Capital Gains Tax (CGT) free. This is a major advantage when buying 1oz UK gold coins.
