Buy 10 Gram Gold Bars
Ten gram gold bars can be a great investment for those looking to diversify their portfolio or add to their collection. Each bar contains roughly 0.3215 troy ounces of pure gold, struck in at least 0.999 fineness (24 carat).
The dimensions of a typical 10g gold bar will vary depending on the brand, with an approximate length and width being 26.00 mm x 15.00 mm respectively.

Are Small Gold Bars Worth Buying?
For investment purposes, it makes the most sense to purchase gold at the lowest possible margin over the live spot price. Small gold bars in new condition, usually sized under 20 grams, have more expensive premiums because of the costs associated with their production. However, pre-owned gold 10 gram gold bars can be excellent value for money, often being cheaper per ounce than gold coins of a similar size. If you buy several bars, you also have the option to sell on part of your portfolio at a later date. This isn't possible if you buy just the one larger-sized coin or bar.

Other considerations which you should keep in mind are capital gains tax implications and the ability to liquidate part of your gold portfolio. You can read more about this in-depth in our Buying Gold Bars vs Gold Coins article.
Tax Free Gold
Investment gold is exempt from VAT in the United Kingdom as a result of an EU directive commencing in January 2000. This law is still currently in force in the UK.
All gold bullion bars sold by The Britannia Coin Company meet the definition, which means they are sold without any VAT. The sale of physical silver, platinum and palladium products are still liable for VAT at the standard rate, which makes physical gold an attractive investment option.
