To qualify as VAT free investment quality, gold coins must be: ‘minted after 1800 with a Gold purity of at least 900 parts in 1000. Such coins must be or have been legal tender in their country of origin and are normally sold at a price that does not exceed 180% of the value of the Gold contained in the coin.’
What is The Best Way To Buy Gold Coins?
The worst way to buy gold coins is through an online auction site. We have heard many horror stories from people who have bought goods at apparently bargain prices only to find that they have ended up with sub-standard and counterfeit coins and a seller who has disappeared.
