We offer a wide range of gold bars available at low premiums above spot. Buying gold bars tends to offer investors the cheapest way to invest in physical gold. All our bars are brand new, pure 24-carat gold (999.9) and come supplied with a certificate of authenticity direct from an LBMA approved refiner.
Gold bars are also VAT free and can now be added to your pension portfolio. All our gold bars are available for secure vaulting at Brink's or FREE fully insured delivery direct to your door.
At GOLD.co.uk we only supply fully certificated gold bars from London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) approved refiners. We are an official stockist for the world's most reputable bullion bar manufacturers including PAMP, Metalor, Heraeus, Umicore, and Valcambi.
Buying gold bars usually offers investors the most cost-effective way of purchasing physical gold due to the lower manufacturing costs compared to striking coins. The only exceptions may be the smaller 1g to 5g bars, often bought as gifts.
In general, the larger the gold bar, the lower the percentage premium above spot an investor will pay. For example, it is cheaper to buy 1kg (1000g) of gold in a single 1kg gold bar than to purchase 4 x 250g bars. Although cheaper, it is not necessarily the best option for you. This brings us onto another key consideration, flexibility.
When buying larger bars upwards of 100g, often the percentage premium difference is relatively slight. For example, purchasing 10 x 100g gold bars rather than 1 x 1kg bar would offer ten times the flexibility for a relatively small additional premium. This option is often preferred as it gives individuals the ability to release part of their holdings as opposed to having to sell all of their gold at once, offering greater control over your investment.
Finding the ideal level of flexibility will differ from investor to investor depending on an individuals' total holdings and wider investment portfolio. For most, our best-selling 1oz and 100g gold bars tend to offer the ideal balance between flexibility and value. For larger investors spending £100k to £1 million, the 1kg bars prove the most popular.
Those who anticipate CGT potentially being an issue may also wish to consider tax free British gold sovereign and Britannia coins. Please note CGT is only payable if an investor realises a profit of over £11,000 in one tax year. Click to learn more about CGT.
