Pre-owned best value one gram gold bars are a brilliant gift option and a great entry-level to possess gold at really affordable prices. Bullion such as the gold wafer bars offered here are affordable for all budgets. Because each bar is pre-owned from the secondary market, we're able to offer them at competitive premiums over the live gold spot price. Each 1g gold bar has been checked in detail by our bullion experts using an XRF machine to determine authenticity, which ensures you get the genuine article every time. Due to this testing process, the gold gram bar you receive may be loose without its original assay card. Dimensions for each individual 1g gold bar can vary on the brand issued, with a rough baseline being 15.00 mm long by 8.50 mm wide - smaller than a decimal penny coin.

Gold Bar Brands

Each gold bar brand has different designs which some investors find desirable.

  • Metalor
  • Baird & Co

'We acquire these bars from the secondary market, which allows us to offer them at extremely low premiums.'

Investing In Small Gold Bars

At the Britannia Coin Company, we have gathered a significant amount of knowledge from the years we have been in business, so we believe we can provide useful information for investing in gold for the interested layperson. A question we occasionally get asked is if buying small gold bars is a worthwhile option. 

For investment purposes, it's prudent to purchase gold at the lowest possible margin over the live spot price. Small gold bars, usually sized under 20 grams, have more expensive premiums because of the costs associated with their production. Pre-owned gold 1 gram gold bars tend to be bought as gift options or novelty items, with investor attention drawn to bigger sizes which are more economical to purchase.

That shouldn't deter you from considering 1 gram gold bars though! If you buy several bars, you 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. 

'If you're looking for small gold bars at the cheapest premium, then our pre-owned one gram gold bullion bars can be an excellent choice.'

Other considerations to think of 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. Please note that we don't provide financial advice and our informative blogs shouldn't be interpreted as such.

Best Value Gold Bullion Bars

These investment gold bars may be either loose or in their original outer packaging. Nearly all 1g gold bars come in a 'minted' format.

'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 competitive premiums.'

Each pre-owned gold bar we have has been properly tested by our in-house team of experts, which occasionally means we have to remove any plastic packaging to properly examine it. We possess the latest XRF technology on site to check the composition of each bar in our inventory, ensuring 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.

Tax Free Gold

An enticing reason 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 since January 2000. All gold bullion bars sold by the Britannia Coin Company meet this definition, meaning HMRC will treat them as VAT-exempt.

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.
