When you buy gold online with Physical Gold you have a number of options about the form of gold you buy. The choice will depend on whether you want to buy gold in the UK for investment or as a collector. Each form of gold for sale on our site offers different benefits.

Gold Bars

When considering a large investment, a convenient way to buy gold online is with gold bars. Cheaper than the equivalent in bullion or coins, bars can be purchased in a variety of denominations and are easy to store either at home, bank held safety deposit box or within our own offshore vaults. When you purchase gold bars with Physical Gold we can arrange storage options for you depending on the size of your investment.

Gold Bullion

When compared to bars, gold bullion coins are available at a lower buy in cost and allow investors the opportunity to spread their investment as they can be purchased over a period of time to build a gold holding gradually. They are also a flexible way to buy gold online and offer this same flexibility when selling your assets. You can purchase VAT free gold coins as well Capital Gains Tax free gold coins with the Britannia Sovereign. Bullion coins produced for the investment market differ from pre-owned, rare and collectible coins that may attract more of a premium and are available at a lower cost.

Gold Coins

It may cost more to buy gold in the UK when you are considering coins that are not bullion. This may be because they are rare and/or collectible. Also available as limited edition and commemorative coins many of these coins are a way to buy VAT free gold. Collectible coins retain a historic value and the resale of this kind of gold can retain a collectors premium.

VAT Free Gold

To benefit from VAT free gold, certain criteria must be met including a minimum millesimal finesse (0.995 for gold bars and 0.900 for coins), minted after 1800 (coins) and has been, or is, legal tender in the country of issue or is specified by the HMRC in Notice 701/21A Investment Gold Coins. At Physical Gold, we can advise on which products meet the criteria to qualify as VAT free gold.

Capital Gains Tax Free Gold

When you purchase gold from Physical Gold, we can offer products that also qualify for exemption from Capital Gains Tax. Effectively meaning that all profits made on your investment are tax free, gold sovereign coins like the Britannia are CGT free.

Monthly Saver

In a similar way to paying into an ISA on a regular basis, customers can gradually build a nest egg with regular deliveries of gold coins using our Gold Bundle monthly saver. Ideal for those individuals who want to build a gold holding in an affordable way. A flexible way to save for financial security, a monthly saver provides a stable investment with market prices being levelled out across a longer period.

Pension Gold

You can invest gold in your Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) as a way to save for your retirement. Similar to the way in which traditional pension funds are managed, gold for sale as part of a SIPP is held securely for liquidation in retirement years. Again, pension gold is a way to spread the risk of future investment and adds diversification to offer greater protection over a longer period.
When you purchase gold from us we can either deliver direct to your door or (for sizeable investments) arrange for secure storage in our LBMA certified vaults. Fully insured and managed by our partners, Loomis International, your gold holding will be kept separately and securely with a statement of account providing proof of ownership.

What is the Director’s Pick?

Benefit from our experience and expertise as we hand select a mixed portfolio of UK Tax free coins. This will consist of coins picked at PGL’s discretion from the selection of Enhanced Performance coins. All coins are Royal Mint issued and pre-owned.All our pre-owned coins undergo strict quality checks by our team of experts to ensure their condition is excellent. The idea is two-fold. If you’re unsure which coins to go for and feel you’d benefit from our year’s of experience and knowledge, then leave the choosing to us. We know which coins offer the most value, upside potential or are currently trading cheap to their usual levels. Secondly, it’s the perfect way to create a varied, balanced and mixed portfolio of UK coins. The entire portfolio will be tax free, and depending on investment amount may vary in monarchy and age, size of coins and numismatic level. In other words, you’ll get coins large and small, nearly new, and more historic. The slightly older UK coins move up in value just like brand new coins, but because they’re not issued any more, or less abundant. They may also be of limited issue and enahnced desirability due to a combination of scarcity and historical interest. This additional value, makes them worth more than their equivalent brand new coins, and returns can be greater if their historical premiums rise. It’s a great way to own an appreciating asset and a piece of history.

Who is the Director’s Pick for?

A growing number of investors are buying gold for the first time as they realise it’s the missing component in their portfolio. For most UK residents, Tax free gold coins are the best option.

Coins issued by the Royal Mint are both VAT exempt and Capital Gains Tax (CGT) free. However, choosing the right coins, and the optimum mix isn’t easy. It’s important to achieve a varied portfolio to maximise returns, buy coins which are liquid and easy to sell, and those which are perhaps offering additional value at the time of purchase. That choice can be verwhelming which is why we created the Director’s Pick, which is a free service to all our investor’s, new and old.
