Sell gold Britannias to Gold-Traders.

3 April 2020

PLEASE NOTE that we ONLY sell gold that we PHYSICALLY have in stock. Our position is changing all the time, so you will need to call us for up-to-date availability. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to offer wholesale deals to the trade - strictly retail only. We have Krugerrands and Sovereigns available for immediate delivery.

Coronavirus Statement

Our POSTAL service remains FULLY operational.

In-line with UK Government instruction, our counter service is now CLOSED until further notice. If you have recently purchased bullion from us, we will be in-touch to offer you the option of UK vaulted storage until such time you're able to collect it, or shipping to you via Special Delivery. Please DO NOT try to collect it.

If you are selling scrap gold, silver or gold bullion, our postal service remains operational for sales of standard scrap, bullion and coins. We are unable to offer a 'melt & assay' service until further notice. Advice from Public Health England confirms that Coronavirus does not survive for long on parcels and packaging, therefore our online service will continue to operate. We can also confirm that Royal Mail has extensive contingency planning in place to ensure their delivery network remains operational. You can read their statement here.

Gold Britannia

There are two versions of every coin created: the proof and the bullion. Proofs are often more detailed and have contrasting colours through the use of mirrored and matt surfaces. Bullion versions don't have the matt detailing; they were not made for collecting in design. Most of the proofs are included in sets. The £100 Britannia coin is one of these. Proofs are issued with a box and certificate of authenticity. While many of the other weights have been consistently issued in sets, this coin has also been issued as a single coin.

Weighing it at a full ounce of gold, older versions of this coin along with the newer versions have become a sought after investment coin.

After the year 2000, Britannia's sitting image was exchanged for the standing Britannia image that is still used on the coins today. The £100 Britannia coin is slightly over 32 millimeters in diameter and weighs a full troy ounce. It has a ratio of 31 grams of gold to .92 grams of alloy. 1989 and earlier coins are made from copper alloy. Coins made in 1990 and up are made with silver as the alloy.
