British lunar coins are a great alternative to sovereigns and Britannias. Struck in 24 carat gold, these one ounce coins are a popular choice for investors looking for quality gold bullion at low premiums above the spot price of gold. Investment gold is tax free in Great Britain and the lunar coins have the added advantage of being exempt from Capital Gains Tax, making them particularly attractive for investors resident in the United Kingdom.
