The two main British gold coins available to bullion investors and collectors are the Sovereign and the Britannia. Their value is relative to the live spot price of gold.

The gold Sovereign is considered the flagship coin of The Royal Mint and its 2017 commemorative edition has a finesse of .916 fine gold.

The 2017 gold Britannia has a purity of .999 and features the female embodiment of Britain, the iconic figure of Britannia.

Why invest in British gold coins?

One big reason UK investors choose English gold coins over those from other internationally renowned mints is that the current years are usually exempt from both VAT and Capital Gains Tax (CGT).

On top of this, the quality, accuracy and craftsmanship of British gold coins are superb, and the long and significant history of British coinage leaves many investors and enthusiasts hooked.

All bullion coins are sold at a small premium which covers the cost of production and packaging.

The best British gold coins to buy in 2017

Dating back to 1817, the modern gold Sovereign celebrates its 200th anniversary in 2017 with a commemorative coin that features the fifth definitive portrait of Her Majesty the Queen on the front and the traditional George and the Dragon design on the reverse.

The gold Britannia coin, which was first introduced to the bullion investment market in 1987, celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2017.

These commemorative coins are a popular choice not only because of their special designs and mint marks but also because they signify important milestones as they mark major anniversaries.

This could make them more valuable than non-commemorative coins in the future, especially if sold at the right time to a buyer who has a particular interest in the history or is close to making a full set.

How to buy British gold coins

Those new to buying English gold coins should take care to conduct research before making a purchase.

When shopping online, it’s important to use trusted and well-established distributors who have a strong track record and plenty of positive independent customer reviews.

Be sure to check a dealer’s delivery policy and find out which courier they use before you place an order. If it’s not a courier you’ve heard of before, find out more about them.

When it comes to pricing, remember that the price of any gold bullion coin should be linked to the live price of gold. Respectable distributors will display real-time pricing on their website that is updated throughout the day to reflect the live gold market.

Buying any high-priced item online is risky when you don’t take the time to find out more about who you’re buying from. So remember – read those reviews, find out about the delivery policy and compare prices to the live market price.
