Best Value Gold Bars
The 100g investment gold bars we offer are usually offered loose, without any outer packaging. 100g gold bars are a very popular method amongst individual investors to own the precious metal because of their low premiums. They're common in both 'cast' format and 'minted' format, with the cast bars generally being slightly cheaper to produce. The Britannia Coin Company doesn't differentiate between the two types as they both contain exactly the same amount of gold.
'The brand and style of your gold bar can vary as it's allocated on a random basis from the stock we currently have. This allows us to offer them at very low premiums.'
Our team of experts have the latest XRF technology on site, using it to check the metal composition of each bar we come across. This ensures you get a genuine, correct-weight gold bar every time. You can read more about our XRF machine on our sister website, Gold Traders UK.

Pre-Owned Gold Bars
Pre-owned gold bars are an excellent choice if you're looking for the cheapest premiums on gold bullion.
'We acquire these bars from the secondary market, which allows us to offer them at really low premiums.'
They're sold purely for their precious metal content, irrespective of brand. Some bars may have very slight blemishes on them, which is perfectly normal on second-hand bullion bars. We guarantee that all these bars will contain exactly one hundred grams of pure gold.
All the pre-owned 100g gold bars we offer for sale come from highly regarded and reputable precious metal refineries. This is a list of a few examples of pre-owned bars we stock:
- PAMP Suisse
- Baird & Co
- Royal Mint Refinery
Authentic investment gold bullion bars should be stamped with the weight, purity and refinery. Most 100g gold bars have a unique serial number as well, but it should be noted that a minority of brands chose to omit this. This doesn't affect the bullion value of the bar.
VAT Free Investment Gold
One of the most compelling reasons to purchase investment gold bars is the fact that the precious metal has VAT-free status. Investment gold has been exempt from VAT in the UK and the EU since January 2000.
All gold bullion bars sold by The Britannia Coin Company meet this definition, meaning HMRC will treat them as VAT-exempt, therefore allowing you to buy gold tax free.
