Frequently asked questions

DigiGold is a simple and cost-effective way to own physical gold, silver and platinum in quantities to suit all budgets, allowing you to purchase and own a fractional amount of large gold, silver and platinum bars that are held securely in The Vault®.

These large bars allow us to offer economies of scale and pass on the savings to customers. Unlike buying coins or bars, it enables you to purchase gold, silver and platinum based on value rather than weight e.g. £25.00 instead of a 1 ounce coin or bar, providing you with control and flexibility. Please note that DigiGold products cannot be delivered.

DigiGold offers direct ownership of real physical gold, silver or platinum without the delivery or fabrication fees associated with coins and bars. Unlike coins and bars, DigiGold enables you to purchase gold, silver and platinum-based on value rather than weight e.g. £25.00 instead of a 1 ounce coin or bar.

As you purchase fractions of a large bar, DigiGold cannot be delivered. Subject to a minimum order value of £25.00, you can purchase any amount you choose in 0.001 ounce units, and unlike larger coins and bars, you can spend exactly what you choose.

The Royal Mint buys large bars and stores them securely within The Vault. Subject to a minimum order value of £25.00, you can purchase fractions of these bars to the nearest 0.001 ounce, but unlike buying coins or bars, it enables you to purchase gold, silver and platinum-based on value rather than weight e.g. £25.00 instead of a one ounce coin or bar.

When you purchase DigiGold, you own it and have legal title to it, with The Royal Mint acting as a custodian only. This means that we don’t have any direct claim on the gold you’ve purchased, and you have the assurance that your gold, silver and platinum are protected.

DigiGold allows you to purchase and own individual ounces of large 400-ounce gold, silver and platinum bars, that are held securely in The Vault. These large 400-ounce bars allow us to offer economies of scale to our clients and pass on the savings. Please note that DigiGold cannot be delivered.

DigiGold is a product offered alongside our existing investment coins and bars. If you already have an Invest account on royalmint.com, then you simply need to log in to purchase digital gold, silver and platinum.

If you haven’t opened an Invest account, this process only takes a few minutes to complete. Once your application is approved, you can add funds and begin trading.

DigiGold management fees are charged at 0.5% + VAT per annum based on the average daily market value of your total holding that is stored in The Vault.

When you choose to purchase DigiGold from The Royal Mint, we offer:

  • No hidden charges
  • No minimum monthly fee
  • Zero vault extraction fees

Invoices are issued quarterly and must be settled immediately or you will be liable to interest charges thereafter. For example:

For your piece of mind, The Royal Mint guarantees:

  • Every ounce of gold, silver and platinum on your account is backed up by an ounce of fine gold, silver and platinum in The Vault.
  • Your gold, silver and platinum is stored securely in The Vault, which is reconciled and accounted for each day.
  • The product is fully insured, protected by trained security staff and remains within the custody and security of The Royal Mint at all times.
  • The Royal Mint always holds more gold, silver and platinum in The Vault than is held by our clients.
