The Royal Mint’s own bullion

Royal Mint Gold Bar

The Royal Mint is perhaps best known for being the sole producer of all legal coinage for the United Kingdom, however they operate a refinery and vault for customers who wish to purchase gold bullion in a variety of forms. For instance they regularly release special edition gold sovereign coins to mark a particular date, royal anniversary or historical event. These can often carry a higher premium compared to bars, meaning they have a higher value than the intrinsic weight of the gold they are formed of. Regardless of which type of solid gold you purchase from the Royal Mint you can choose to store it in their highly secure vault which is built to the highest security standards. Storing your gold in their vault is advantageous as they will purchase your gold back from you in accordance with London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) rules.

Contact the Royal Mint

You can contact the Royal Mint for gold sales enquiries on their UK phone number 0345 600 5014 where you can ask for their latest prices, to liquidate (sell) your existing gold holdings and for details on which products are exempt from value-added tax (VAT). Here you can also enquire about their “Signature” products which allow you to invest in physical stocks of gold and other precious metals without having to store them at your property. Calls are charged at standard UK rates which means you can phone them for free if you have inclusive minutes as part of your tariff agreement.
