Do I pay VAT on gold bullion coins or bars?
All of the gold bullion offered from Royal Mint, including coins, bars and DigiGold, is VAT free for non VAT registered private individuals. Silver bullion coins and silver bullion bars are subject to standard VAT, currently 20.0%. Similarly, Platinum bullion coins and platinum bullion bars are subject to standard VAT, currently 20.0%. Digital Silver and Digital Platinum are also liable to VAT at the standard rate. For dispatch to countries outside of the EU, VAT will not be charged. These packages may, however, be assessed for import or customs fees, depending on the laws of the particular countries.
