Are Silver Coins Exempt From Capital Gains Tax?

Some coins are, some coins aren't. Pound sterling coins are exempt from capital gains tax (CGT). One ounce silver CGT free coins include the Britannia and the British lunar series.

CGT Exempt Silver Coins

British residents can benefit from coins which are free from CGT when they come to sell them. To find out more, read our blog Capital Gains Tax on Bullion – Do I pay this? and the Capital Gains Tax section of the HMRC website.

Is There VAT on Silver Coins?

Yes, in the UK, investment silver is subject to VAT at the standard rate of 20%*.

However, the unattractive VAT element on silver doesn't put investors off. The low price of silver compared to gold makes this a favourite precious metal for investors who are prepared to see it as a long term investment. The live price of silver tends to be more volatile than gold and is often seen by analysts as having the potential for large scale gains.

Should I Buy Gold or Silver?

Many investors like to combine silver with gold to build their investment portfolios. You will not pay VAT on investment gold but the price per ounce is higher than the price of an ounce of silver. So, look at the gold silver ratio to help you decide when to buy silver and sell gold. 

You can see our 1 ounce gold coins here.
