What is a Gold Britannia?

Gold Britannias are the UK’s leading 24 carat gold investment coin produced by The Royal Mint at Llantrisant in Wales. Each coin contains 1 Troy Ounce or 31.1035 grams of fine gold.

The Britannia was first produced in 1987 from 22 carat gold as an alternative to the popular South African Krugerrand but the growing popularity of 24 carat gold investment coins led to a change of the gold purity in 2013. Britannias minted from 2013 to the present day were manufactured from 24 carat 999.9 gold.

Why Should I Buy Gold Britannias?

Gold Britannias are legal tender in the UK with a face value of £100. Their gold content is therefore guaranteed by the Royal Mint on behalf of the UK Government.

Due to their legal tender status, Gold Britannias are CGT exempt which means that any profits made by an investor when the coins are sold will not be taken into account when assessing a Capital Gains Tax liability. This can make for an attractive incentive for investors with a diverse portfolio who wish to liquidate a range of assets during a short period in the future.

The market for Gold Britannias is very liquid, they are easily sold when an investor wishes to cash in an investment.
