Royal Mint Official Partner

Chards is an official partner of The Royal Mint. Our 2018 Britannia Half Ounce Gold Coins, among other Royal Mint products, are sourced directly from their mint headquarters in Llantrisant, Wales.

Gold Britannia Coins

Gold Britannia coins are the UK's most popular CGT exempt gold bullion coin. Britannias were introduced by The Royal Mint in 1987. These British gold coins have a face value of £50.

Between 1987 - 2012, the coins were struck in 22 carat gold (0.9167 fineness); from 2013 onwards, the coins have been struck in 24 carat gold (0.9999 fineness). The coins all contain one troy ounce of gold, whether they are struck in 22 carat gold or 24 carat gold. 

Fractional Ounce Gold Coins

Fractional ounce gold coins typically offer higher premiums than the full one ounce gold coins, due to the 1 oz coins being so popular as an investment gold product.

What Is Capital Gains Tax?

Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is a form of levies imposed on the profit garnered from the sale of assets, such as real estate, investments, and collectibles. In the United Kingdom, the present CGT allowance is £3,000 per annum per individual, which implies that one can earn up to £3,000 from the sale of assets prior to being subject to CGT.

For UK residents, bullion coins which are UK legal tender pound sterling coins are exempt from capital gains tax (CGT).
