Why buy British Royal Mint Bullion?

English mint products produced by The Royal Mint are some of the most purchased and well recognized bullion coins and bullion bars in the world.

Unlike many other government bullion mints around the world, The Royal Mint not only produces bullion coins but also many varied sized silver and gold bullion bars.

Official England mint bullion coins carry legal tender face values while The Royal Mint bullion bars also enjoy a government guarantee of authenticity enforced by the United Kingdom, and specifically the British government.

British Gold Sovereign Coins

The Royal Mint’s Gold Sovereign Coin is a 22k gold flagship coin of the UK mint. These 0.235 oz gold coins bear Benedetto Pistrucci’s original design with the patron saint of England, St. George, atop a horse as he slays a dragon.

This .916+ purity gold bullion coin has been a long term investment piece whose weight and quality is verified at the Trial of the Pyx - an independent trial of weight and size specifications dating back to 1282 with The Royal Mint.

In its current form, the Gold Sovereign Coin has been minted since 1817. Its history, however, goes back to 1489 and the reign of King Henry VII.

Since 886 AD, The Royal Mint has been producing coinage. This historic British mint is the world’s oldest mint producing some of bestselling modern bullion coins and bullion bars in the world.

This more than 1,100 year old UK mint produces exquisite silver and gold coins as well as silver and gold bullion bars both of which are highly traded throughout the physical bullion market.
