Where are the Best Places to Buy Gold in the UK?

Where are the best places to buy gold in the UK?

The UK is one of the best places in the world to buy gold. This is in large part because of the various quality controls and hallmarks that can be found in the British marketplace. This means that in practice, there should not really be any difference in the gold quality between the various sellers.  What you may find however is a difference in finish, packaging, quality of service and to some degree price.  So with that in mind what else should you be looking for when asking the question “Where are the best places to buy gold in the UK?”.

Jewellery Quarters

There are many benefits to shopping in places such as the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter or London’s Hatton Garden if you are looking for gold jewellery.  There are a huge number of options available and you are also able to compare prices between different retailers.  However, in terms of buying investment-grade gold, or brand new, uncirculated gold coins, it is just as easy to buy from online specialists.  The benefits of buying gold investments in the store are limited to being able to take the product away that day, but often this is outweighed by having to make the journey to the store.

Specialist Dealers of Gold Bullion and Gold Coins

Using a specialist gold dealer such as The Gold Bullion Company will also ensure expertise and competitive pricing and a low premium against the raw market rate for the raw material that is contained in the products.  Gold bullion and gold coin dealers tend to be found in similar clusters to jewellers.  This is because of a few factors such as community support and the ability to find a critical mass of skilled and knowledgeable staff.  This is why our base in Wolverhampton is a part of our success.

Whilst you could visit in person to a storefront, for the most part, the best deals are to be found online.

This is partly because we can pass the savings on to you of not having that expensive real estate and overheads of operation in a city centre location, whilst also being able to maintain the same specialist knowledge in buying and setting up complex distribution agreements with some of the world’s best-known gold refiners such as Metalor, Umicore, Emirates Gold and Valcambi Suisse.  Unlike many dealers who fix the prices in use each morning and add in a percentage to cover the variance over the trading day, we offer live metal prices, so you can be sure that our prices will be amongst the most competitive in the marketplace.
