There are numerous investment options available when you buy gold online with Physical Gold Limited, we go on to discuss these below. Each type of gold brings different benefits and advantages, which will be of interest to both investors and numismatists.

Gold Bars

Undoubtedly a great way to buy gold online is through gold bars. Due to the lower costs of manufacturing gold bars are cheaper per oz to buy than other forms of bullion or gold coins. The price of the bar will vary depending on the current gold spot price, multiplied by the weight of the bar. We are specialist providers of Metalor bars and offer a range of denominations, which are 5g, 10g, 20g, 1oz, 50g, 100g, 250g, 500g and 1KG. The bars can be conveniently stacked and stored at home in bank safety deposit boxes or you could choose to use our offshore vaults. Depending upon the size of your investment, we will be able to provide a number of cost-effective storage solutions for gold bars.

Gold Bullion Coins

Offering a lower level of investment requirement, gold bullion coins provide investors with an excellent opportunity to invest in gold, whilst also having an asset, which is of more interest than just looking at a bar! Many investors choose to invest in bullion regularly and build up a holding gradually. Gold bullion coins offer great divisibility and are as easy to buy as they are to sell. Physical Gold have tax-effective solutions to buy gold online, which are both VAT free and CGT free. It’s important to remember that gold bullion coins are primarily produced for the investor market and are not aimed at being rare and collectable coins. These tend to have a premium above the gold spot price based on scarcity and desirability.

Gold Coins

Other types of gold coins, which are not bullion include rare, collectable, limited edition and commemorative coins. Many of these coins can also be supplied as VAT free gold (call us for details). Rare and collectable coins usually have a historic value and inbuilt premium, which is also true of limited edition and commemorative coins, which tend to have an inflated price over and above their value when compared to their weight in the gold spot price.
There are two types of tax free gold we can supply when you buy gold online from Physical Gold Limited, these are VAT free and CGT free, we go on to discuss these below.

Pension Gold

Investors can also take the opportunity to invest in our Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP), this is a very cost-effective way to save for your retirement.
