Buy gold bullion coins directly from institutional physical precious metals markets worldwide through our dedicated and bespoke online bullion trading platform, MetalDesk.
Please Note: These coin contracts will be temporarily suspended from 5pm AEST Friday 29 July 2016. This is to help us focus on providing greater liquidity on our remaining products, as per client demand. See here for our remaining products.
Because the global bullion markets you access are institutional and wholesale, the physical precious metals are priced with lower than normal premiums and probably the narrowest Bid-Ask spread in the industry.
These markets are fully accessible to both private investors and corporate entities that are looking to buy gold bullion coins at the best possible value across the world.
Our 16 physical precious metals markets span 11 countries and 4 continents. They are all encompassed under the massive and global institutional Allocated Bullion Exchange.
We offer the world’s most liquid & recognised 1 ounce gold coins which are produced by globally leading and respected mints.
We also offer silver and platinum bullion in 1 troy ounce coins too. For a full list of our products go to our main products page. The physical contract specifications for the gold coins are found in our bullion products catalogue.
All of the 1 troy ounce gold coins available to be purchased from our markets, reach the purity minimums of 99.9 which is now pretty much the international norm required for gold to be classified as ‘investment grade’ and all 5 of gold bullion coins meet or exceed that minimum.
Therefore when you buy gold bullion coins through us to be part of an investment portfolio, such as self-directed IRAs or physical bullion funds, you can be confident that your purchases meet minimum quality / purity requirements.
Please be aware that gold coins are not eligible for investment as part of your UK SIPP. The only form of precious metals that you can invest into are gold bars or wafers that have a minimum purity of 99.5%
Many UK firms are offering gold investment accounts, however, several don’t make any distinctions between a standard investment and a pension investment. This means that there are no built-in restrictions on the types of products you can buy through them, which opens up the possibility that you could buy gold products that aren’t eligible for pension investment.
Whilst the gold coins are pure enough to not be subjected to VAT or Capital Gains Tax, they are absolutely not eligible for a UK pension plan.
If you add gold coins to your UK pension plan you will be hit with a massive tax bill of 55% + an unauthorised payment surcharge which will push your pension tax bill up to 70% of your investment!!
If you have already bought gold coins for your UK pension plan you need to seek immediate tax advice.
When you buy gold bullion coins through us you’re free to choose whether you want to have them delivered to you or to keep them safely and privately vaulted with us.
The MetalDesk system default is set to have your items vaulted as they need to be delivered to the Allocated Bullion Exchange first from the refinery or liquidity provider.
Once your bullion is in the vault you can immediately make a request for delivery (or collect it directly from the vault). Withdrawal requests are initiated by you from within MetalDesk.
