British Gold Coins

For those who want to safeguard their hard-earned money, British gold coins are the most sought-after investment precious metal. The British Royal Mint Gold coins are a great way to invest in gold and gain financial stability and rich personal history. Royal Mint, the oldest mint in the World, has produced some of the most unique gold bullion products like the British Sovereign Gold Coins and the British Half Sovereign Gold Coins since 886 A.D.

British gold coins are one of the most sought-after in a world that combines investment-worthy bullion with gold collectors’ goods. British gold coins are prized possession that investors and collectors ave been long been interested in. They feature beautiful craftsmanship and high purity standards.

Royal Mint

The Royal Mint has a long track record of producing excellent quality British gold coins. The British Royal Mint was established in 886 as the London Mint. It is the oldest operating facility in the world. Because of its vast size and coverage, the Royal Mint is one of the most commonly used coins worldwide. The Royal Mint produced coins that were once used throughout North America, Europe, Australia, Africa, Southeast Asia, and Africa.

The Royal Mint is still one of the most important facilities in the world. The London Mint has been in existence for over 500 years. However, growing operations necessitated more space. In 1812, the minting plant was transferred to Royal Mint court across from the Tower of London. However, demand grew and the new site proved insufficient. Queen Elizabeth II inaugurated the new mint in 1968. It was moved to Llantrisant, a small town in Welsh that offers plenty of space for expansion.

British Gold Bullion Coins

The British gold coins have a long history and are well known for their classic designs and high levels of gold content. Some of the popular British Gold Coins are as follows:

1. Britannia Gold Bullion Coin

In 1987, the Royal Mint introduced Britannia Gold Bullion Coins to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II’s 25th anniversary on the throne. The rights to these coins were first given as a gift by her Majesty herself and they are still produced today in commemoration of her diamond jubilee. These gold bullions coins have been made available for purchase every year since their release date; 1977 marks just one exception when production was halted due to an economic crisis brought on by excessive spending.
Britannia Gold Bullion coin was first introduced in 1987 which had a purity of 0.9167, which is 91.7% or 22-carat gold. The Royal Mint increased the fineness of these gold coins to 0.9999(24-carat) gold in 2013.  The Britannia(24-carat gold) is a popular choice for collectors and investors due to its iconic design.
The Gold Britannia’s Obverse is dedicated to Queen Elizabeth II. she is the longest-reigning British monarch. Jody Clark(Royal Mint engraver) created this beautiful portrait of her Majesty.  This is the fifth effigy for the Queen that will be used on UK coins. Each portrait depicts the Queen in a different way throughout her reign.
Britannia, proudly standing with Poseidon’s sword, shield and olive branch on the reverse is depicted. This international icon is the female embodiment of the  British Isles. It represents strength and integrity. Her name is derived from the ancient Greek term meaning “region” in Greek. Britannia has been featured on the coinage since under the rule of Emperor Hadrian, Now she graces the nation’s modern bullion products.
Britannia Gold Coins can be issued in fractional sizes: one-half, one quarter, and one-tenth of a troy ounce. They also have face values PS50, PS25, and PS10, respectively.

2. British Sovereign Gold Coins

The British Gold Sovereign is the official gold coin of Great Britain. It was first produced in 1817 by Royal Mint, London. It is one of the most well-known bullion coins around the globe. The coins were also produced by South African mints, Australian mints, and Canadian ones in the past. Today, these coins are only produced by the Royal Mint. Each coin contains .2354 troy oz of 91.67%-gold and has a face value of 1 pound sterling. Each coin is insured by the British government for its weight, purity, content, and authenticity.

The unique history of this coin began more than 500 years ago in 1489, when the first British Gold Sovereign was made to celebrate the country’s stability following a long civil war. These famously minted gold coins were in circulation until they were discontinued during James I’s early reign. Collectors today can purchase modern coins because they were brought back into production after the Great Recoinage of1816. The dates shown on the coins could vary. These will be determined randomly by what stock is available.

Each coin has a profile image of the reigning British monarch on the obverse. Over the years, coins have featured profile engravings of Queen Victoria at three different points during her long reign, images of King Edward VII, and King George V. Every British Gold Sovereign minted since 1957 has featured the correct profile of Queen Elizabeth II. Three versions have been produced over the years that are similar to those depicting Queen Victoria. On each side of the coin, the title and name of each monarch is engraved.
The reverse side of the coin always features a depiction of St. George, a horse-mounted figure of St. George fighting ferocious Dragons. Benedetto, an Italian engraver/medalist, designed the famous image. The coin’s image has been changed many times over the years, but the original image is still visible today to keep the British Gold Sovereign as easily recognizable as possible.

Each British Gold Sovereign Coin contains.2354 troy Ounces of Gold. The coins are 22.05mm in diameter by 1.52mm thick.

3. Gold Queen Beast’s Bullion Coin

In the last few years, the gold Queen’s Beasts collection has been a popular choice among collectors and investors. The collection is comprised of 10 heraldic staties that were present during her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s coronation ceremony in 1953. Each “Beast” was adorned with the badge of the family associated with her Majesty. It was a symbol of power and lineage, handed down through generations and many centuries.
In total there are 11 different Queen’s Beast Coins: Six heraldic animals – lion(2016), Griffin(2017), falcon(2018), the unicorn(2019), and dragon(2020); three sections from her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Coat of Arms which represent England, Scotland and Ireland – lion(206), the unicorn(2019) and harp(2021); two Queen’s Beast chariots – a unicorn light-skinned horse with a white mane. They have become an overwhelming favorite for not only collectors but also investors. There are 10 distinct beasts as well as a fuller coin. They’re a popular choice for collectors and investors. The beautiful design of these coins is a joy for both investors and collectors.
The Queen’s Beast gold coins are available in both 1 oz and 1/4 oz sizes. This permits those who have different financial and investment objectives to buy into the series. These coins are struck to the exact specifications of the Britannia series and the Queen’s Beast Gold coins are struck with pure 999.9 quality(24k) gold, and carry a face value of PS100 or PS25 depending on the size of the coin.

Benefits of Owning British Royal Mint Gold Coins

Some of the benefits of owning Britain Gold Coins are as follows:

  • Owning British gold coins diversifies, balances, and stabilizes the investment in your portfolio with the backing of the Britain government. 
  • The British gold coins provide a piece of history, are simple to resell for cash, and no coin looks or feels better than one made of real gold.
  • In contrast to other investments, the price of European gold coins rises in lockstep with the price of gold, which has climbed regularly and continuously.
  • Many British gold coins that were minted prior to World War I are still in circulation. This makes them scarcer and more valuable.

The risk factors include political development, war, pandemics, demand, and supply. It is important to keep this in mind when transacting with BULLIONTRADING LLC.

The Ordering Process

BULLIONTRADING LLC. Does Not speculate on the prices of precious metals. This means that we don’t make profits by buying gold when the prices are low and selling when prices go up. BULLIONTRADING LLC generates revenue through premium spreads. This is the difference between what Bullion Trading LLC pays & sells these items for.

Orders and inquiries can be made through our website, phone, or other suitable channels. Contact Us for information.


Inquiries are made by customers who are not ready to transact immediately. Customers can contact us or go online at to get current market prices. The price quote and quantity available are subject to change. They can also contact us for guidance on buying and selling bullion coins and bars. You should note that the Price Quotations you receive when inquiring are Estimates because the prices of bullion coins and bars fluctuate daily, and the number of our stock changes all the time.

For example, The U.S Mint sets premium and minimum prices for American Eagles. Prices for American Eagles are determined by the current price of gold, silver, platinum, or palladium. The mint also charges a modest premium to cater to the cost of distribution and marketing. Consequently, the price of bullion coins and bars changes daily as the markets for gold, silver, platinum, and palladium fluctuates. Refer to the United States Mint’s Charges for Authorized Dealers.


Orders are made when customers are ready to transact immediately. The prices you get when ordering bullion coins and bars from us are an accurate reflection of the current market prices. Note that once you place an order, the prices are locked and are no longer subject to market conditions.

An order is placed when you finalized negotiations with our agents and an invoice is generated, not when the payment is made. Ordering and then bailing out or canceling after an invoice is generated makes BULLIONTRADING LLC incur losses. We incur losses because when you place an order, we consider the bullion coin or bar sold and will have hedged ourselves accordingly.

Disclaimer: To protect our company from losses, BULLIONTRADING LLC has implemented a Market Loss Policy.

Market Loss Policy Explained

An order starts when you finalize the deal with our agents, not when the payment is made. We generate an invoice immediately the deal is sealed either through our website or phone. We also count the bullion coin or bar as sold and will have hedged ourselves accordingly.

Customers who place orders, have invoices generated, and then cancel thereafter make us incur losses. To protect ourselves we have implemented a market loss policy. This means that you will incur penalties for ordering, having an invoice generated, and then bailing out. Once an order is placed, prices are locked and not subject to market conditions.

The moment you place an order an invoice is generated. If you cancel, and then gold prices decline you make us incur a loss. It is your responsibility to offset this loss if your order is canceled and your funds are returned. If this happens you will pay for the loss caused by a decline in the price of gold after a sale is made plus a cancellation fee of $35.00. This is our market loss policy.

To remain transparent and protect ourselves from risk we might require credit card information from every customer even if payment will be received through a different channel. We also will ask for immediate confirmation of the amount locked in. This gives us an avenue to compensate ourselves for losses in the event a customer places an order and then fails to pay.

However, if the price of bullion coins and bars stays the same, we usually don’t enforce our market loss policy because we don’t incur losses. If the price goes down we charge a market loss fee which is equal to the amount BULLIONTRADING LLC would have lost because of the unpaid order.
