Our Expert Opinion
This is our best-selling gold bar. It’s the largest bar we offer while still being produced in Metalor’s impressive tamper-proof packaging. Larger Metalor gold bars are offered loose with certificates, like the 1kg gold bar. In our opinion, it offers an ideal compromise between price and size. Unless you have a very significant sum to invest into gold, then buying anything larger than 100g will severely limit your ability to sell small parts of your holding. Just imagine owning a 1kg gold bar but wanting to sell some to realise £15k of cash flow. With the bar worth over £30k, a hacksaw would be needed – not recommended to maximise the value of the bar! Alternatively, buying small gold bars like 20g and 1oz can be a lot more expensive than buying the equivalent in bullion coins, which can have the advantage of further divisibility and tax efficiency. For those reasons, 100g seems to tick most boxes for investors. In fact, it’s the most common denomination used for our clients’ Pension Gold.

The 100-gram gold bullion bar benefits from qualifying not only for your SIPP pension in the UK but also for our buyback guarantee and segregated storage facility. Our storage service is for purchases over £2,500 and suits those who want the ultimate peace of mind and security. When buying a 100g gold bar, it will be stored in the UK on an insured, fully allocated and segregated basis. Meaning your gold’s safe in any circumstance.
While gold bars can be a great value investment, the alternative when your funds stretch to this size investment and larger is gold coins. Buying a number of UK gold coins (such as gold Sovereigns and gold Britannias) also benefits from price reductions when compared to buying single pieces. These represent additional benefits over 100g gold bars, in that they’re tax-efficient when selling as well as buying.
Determining which is best, coins or bars will be based on your individual situation. After all, Capital Gains Tax is only payable when making an annual profit of more than £13k. So selling your 100g bars off strategically spread over several years, or if you only own one or two, will mean you’ll avoid the tax anyway.
