Tax Free Gold allows you to invest in and grow your physical gold investment without paying tax on your gains.
USING LEGAL TENDER GOLD COINS
Investment-grade gold is 22ct or higher, does not attract VAT and can be in the form of gold coins or gold bars. However, Tax-Free Gold carries the additional benefit of you not having to pay any Capital Gains Tax on the growth of your investment, depending on individual circumstances (and this tax treatment may be subject to change in the future)
Investing using our Tax Free Gold option is tax free because certain UK gold coins minted by the Royal Mint are regarded as legal tender.
If you were to present to the bank a gold coin, such as a Gold Britannia or Gold Sovereign, the bank would class that coin as being worth its face value, e.g. £1, rather than its retail value, e.g. £250. This illustrates the coins’ status as a form of currency.
TAX FREE INVESTMENT
It is a firm principle of UK law that we do not pay tax on the flow of currency, and therefore you do not have to pay tax on transactions involving Royal Minted gold coins.
This means that if you are a UK resident that pays tax, depending on individual circumstances you may qualify for and can benefit from Tax Free Gold. In the same way, as ISA gains are not taxed, gold gains on certain gold products are not either. In addition, you won’t be exposed to counterparty risk and you can liquidate whenever you need to.
BENEFITS OF TAX FREE GOLD COINS
Demand for tax free gold coins is much higher than most other types of gold. This means they are easily liquidated.
Because tax-free gold coins come in different sizes and denominations, customers have more flexibility when choosing to sell a specific amount of gold as opposed to having to sell more than they want to and be left with cash that they would otherwise want in physical gold.
In general, there are fewer issues with authenticity with coins than there are with gold bars.
FINANCIAL SAFE HAVENS
In these uncertain financial times, having a balanced portfolio will help manage risk. Safe-haven assets are expected to retain their value or even increase in value during times of market turbulence.
Physical gold has been valued as an investment and store of wealth (safe-haven) for millennia and continues to be a major strategic asset for nations all over the world.
Gold and silver can be great investments if you’re worried about the future of the economy or the stability of your finances. With potential economic downturns and financial crises on the horizon, it’s a good idea to have a safe-haven asset to store your wealth.
Purchasing tax free gold is a simple four-step process. Simply contact The Pure Gold Company to arrange a consultation with one of our experienced advisers and select a gold product that is right for you. Once you’ve selected your gold, you then sign a purchase order authorising The Pure Gold Company to purchase investment-grade gold on your behalf.
The Pure Gold Company will then provide delivery to a location of your choice via fully tracked and insured couriers, or assist you in arranging storage in our London Market Bullion Association-approved Loomis International vaults.
Gold bars, the most common form of gold bullion, are supplied in larger quantities of gold per unit and are more difficult to liquidate and store. Bars are cost-efficient, as they don’t carry the additional cost for the design of the metal that gold coins do, and it’s easier to get them in investment grades. However, gold bars are not considered legal tender, and are therefore not a capital gains tax-free investment.
Gold coins like the US Silver Eagle or the south African Gold coins like the US Silver Eagle or the south African Krugerrand, on the other hand, are easier to store as they can be bought in smaller amounts. These coins are not minted by the Royal Mint and do attract capital gains tax.
Legal tender gold coins like the Britannia and the Sovereign, minted by the Royal Mint, are exempt from Capital Gains Tax, making them ideal for investment despite the higher premiums they fetch compared to bars.
STANDARDS AND MEASURES
To qualify as ‘investment’ grade, gold bars must be no less than .995 purity and of a weight accepted by the bullion markets, or minted after 1800 and some form of legal tender (past or present) if in coin form. (For more details, see VAT Notice 701/21: Gold – The Pure Gold Company’s advisers will be able to assist with enquiries of this nature.)
All gold supplied by the Pure Gold Company will conform to these standards as it is intended for tax-free gold investment.
GOLD PRICE INCREASES
The price of physical gold has increased dramatically over the past two decades. Over the short term, gold can rise and fall like many other investment types, but over the long term, it has consistently risen.
Many countries around the world are net purchasers of gold. National central banks gold reserves are an important part of their financial reserves and serve to diversify their assets and provide a natural hedge against inflation. With demand comings from national governments and corporate institutions as well as retail buyers purchasing coins, bars and jewellery, gold demand remains strong and underpins its long term growth prospects.
As with any financial asset or instrument, past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.
The global pandemic has highlighted the unpredictability of life, and its effect on global economies was unprecedented. It’s always recommended to hold a balanced portfolio to mitigate these unexpected events. Gold is seen as a long term safe-haven asset that holds its value even when other assets are being buffeted by global or local upheaval. When considering buying gold, bear in mind that selling it for profit might be less important than keeping it as a safe haven.
Even with normal gold bars and coins, the Capital Gains Tax doesn’t apply to the first £11,000 made by an investor in a financial year. Consulting with the Pure Gold Company will help you understand what type of gold is right for you.

I decided to make my first tentative steps into investment in gold with the help of The Pure Gold Company due to the good reputation they have dealing with the less experienced investor such as myself. I feel their reputation is well deserved. I was kept informed, anything I didn’t understand was explained well. I have no reservations in recommending The Pure Gold Company to those looking to buy gold or silver.
