Gold has been prized and treasured by civilisations for centuries. The precious metal has been coveted throughout the ages primarily due to its rarity and scarcity, with the world producing more steel in a single hour than all the gold poured in recorded history.
Collecting commemorative gold coins offers you a way of honouring a certain theme or significant milestone in the most precious possible way. You might also be interested in historic coins, telling rich stories about the period in which they were struck. You could also be viewing gold as an investment, as it is consistently considered a reliable addition to portfolios with the view of preserving or protecting wealth. Investing in gold now could build the foundations of a nest egg for your family and loved ones in years to come.
Of course, you might not always wish to buy gold for yourself – perhaps there’s a special anniversary coming up for a family member or some of your closest friends are getting married. Celebrating the occasion with the gift of gold is a wonderfully thoughtful and poignant gesture. With a proud heritage that spans more than 1,100 years, we are an established authority on precious metal coins and bars, and there’s no one better placed to help you collect, discover or invest in gold than The Royal Mint.
