Capital Gains Tax Free Gold
British Sovereign and Britannia coins are capital gains tax (CGT) exempt due to their status as UK legal tender. If you are a CGT paying investor, or anticipate it being an issue for you in the future, then buying British coins could be the best option for you.
CGT is only payable if an individual realises a profit in excess of £12,000 in a single tax year. British gold coins tend to attract slightly higher premiums than bars and some other international coins, but could provide large savings in the future when you decide to sell.

Gold coin prices and premiums vary. In general, coins attract slightly higher premiums than investment bars due to the higher associated manufacturing costs of minting coins. Despite the higher costs, buying gold coins provides a much more flexible option than larger unit size bars.
Gold coins are a highly flexible method of owning physical gold due to their convenient and widely recognised 1oz unit size. All the major international mints opt to strike the bulk of their coins in this size due to global demand. The South African Rand Refinery were the first mint to produce bullion coins (Krugerrands) in 1967 and still account for a large percentage of all global gold coin purchases, with the US Eagle and Canadian Maple and British Britannia coins also popular.
