When compared to silver bars, tax-free coins provide greater flexibility when it comes to selling your silver. Due to coins having a higher cost of production, bars offer better value for your money when you are purchasing a greater volume of silver but do not allow divisibility of your assets in the same way as coins. Also, coins (other than silver bullion) offer a chance of achieving greater returns when you factor in collector’s premiums. Old British coins, for instance, can have a scarcity value that may appreciate more than the price of silver alone. There are several options to choose from when buying through Physical Gold and other silver coin dealers:
You can easily buy silver coins in the UK and international releases with Physical Gold orders are delivered directly to your door using our fully insured courier service. Also, remember due to the gold/silver price ratio that gold coins are far more expensive (e.g. gold sovereign coins) to buy than silver coins.

You can buy silver coins for sale in the UK sourced internationally. We supply a range of foreign silver coins including the Austrian Philharmonic 1 oz, Silver Maple Leaf and 1 kilo Australian series. We can offer economies of scale when you purchase greater volumes of these coins. The 1 kilo Australian series is a popular choice of silver coin for sale in the UK as its large size offers value for money. A weighty piece that whilst not offering good divisibility retains a collectable premium. This size of coin negates the premiums of manufacturing costs for the equivalent value of coins in smaller denominations. Offering similar economies of scale to silver bars (such as 1KG), the 1 kilo coin comes in a variety of designs to celebrate native Australian wildlife and includes the silver Kookaburra and Koala.
If you are investing specifically to avoid Capital Gains Tax (CGT) then the Silver Britannia is the best option. An iconic bullion coin, the Silver Britannia is issued annually with 2017 marking its 20th Anniversary and is also available in a variety of sizes to appeal to the collector’s markets. The 1 oz coin offers the best value for investment purposes, but collectors may be drawn to this coin for numismatic reasons; particularly as the design of the Britannia changes regularly. Exempt from CGT, the Silver Britannia (and the gold Britannia) is a great way to future proof the profits from your silver investment.

Collectable series of silver British coins such as the Queen’s Beast, Lunar and Landmarks range, issued by the Royal Mint, are limited in number and have attracted a good deal of interest from both the domestic market as well as foreign markets. One of our best silver coins for sale is the 2oz Dragon silver bullion coin, the third in the Queen’s Beast series, it is a popular choice with both investors and collectors.
