Like other gold bullion coins, they sell for a small premium above the live spot price of gold to cover the costs of production and packaging.

The current year, full 1oz versions of the coins are exempt from VAT and Capital Gains Tax (CGT), offering an added incentive for buyers in the UK.

Who buys gold Britannia coins?

Gold Britannia coins are bought by investors and collectors.

Investors buy them for their quality and value. With the worth of a Britannia coin relating directly to the live price of gold, they have the potential to increase in value based on this alone.

As gold has a strong track record of holding its value even in times of economic downturn, it is popular with investors looking to diversify their portfolio. Gold coins play a role in this.

Coin collectors also buy Britannia coins to add to their collections. Collectors have pursued gold coins for decades, seeking Britannia gold coins for sale in all the various designs, years and weights available.

Who is Britannia?

Britannia is a fictional character and the female embodiment of Britain. She adorned the coins of Roman emperors and has featured on every British monarch’s coinage since the 17th century.

Which are the best Britannia gold coins for sale?

To celebrate 30 years since the first Britannia bullion coin was produced, The Royal Mint released a commemorative edition for 2017.

Adorned with the iconic standing Britannia and available from The Gold Bullion Co. in 1oz or 1/4oz weights, the 2017 coin features a speckled radial sunburst design.

The Gold Bullion Co. also offer this special 30th-anniversary edition in a luxury presentation box, ideal for those buying it as a gift.
