Best Value Gold Sovereign Five Pound

British Five Pound Coin containing 38.5g of 22ct gold are amongst our most sought after coins with investors focused on buying at the lowest prices. The British coins are Capital Gains Tax Exempt and Tax Free.

The first British Five Pound Coin struck was in 1820, however at this time, the coin was only produced as a proof version. It wasn't until 1887 for the event of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee that the British Five pound coin was produced for circulation. The British Five Pound coin also benefits a VAT free status and is Capital Gain Tax free and is often referred to as a Five Pound Coin as it contains exactly the same gold equivalent at 5 gold sovereigns. This coin has been minted in an array of designs and for celebratory occasions such as the 2003 50th Coronation Anniversary, 2012 Olympic countdown, Diamond Jubilee, and Queen Elizabeth’s II 90th Birthday to name but a few special occasions that this coin celebrates. The gold five sovereign coin has an actual weight of39.94g and is minted in 22 carat (91.67% pure gold). These coins are very popular with investors looking to add to their sovereign collection and in celebration of the special dates that this Five Pound Sovereign recognizes.

Quick Tips For Investors

A good tip for investors looking to expand or even start a gold portfolio is to compare the premiums that you are paying over the market price of gold. It is often the case that gold coins have a lower premium over the pure gold value than other items. Essentially, the lower the premium % the more gold you get for your money.

Gold coins also have the added advantage that they are often manufactured at a lower cost than small denominations gold bars, making them a cheaper alternative to the same equivalent of weight in gold bars. For example you might find that some of our most popular 1 Ounce Gold Coins are slightly lower in price than the 1 Ounce Gold bars. You might also want to sell off in potentially smaller amounts, making gold coins the more advantageous purchase.

Note to potential investors

Our advice usually follows that for a pure investment purchase you should compare premiums and go for the lowest possible. These are often, but not always, on coins rather than bars. Remember that coins also have an advantage when you come to sell as you can sell part of your collection. Say for instance you have 30 gold 1 oz coins instead of a 1kg gold bar. You can sell say 5 of these when the price is right and it suits you whereas you would have to part with the full gold bar in a single transaction.

Bullion Grade

Bullion Grade coins are our most popular and sought after coins amongst investors focused on buying at the lowest prices. Retaining their gold value perfectly, these coins are mixed dates and circulated. Coins that are bullion grade show wear consistent with the heritage of the coin, and are the best value coins that you can buy for their weight and purity.

Better Than Bullion

Any coin rated higher than bullion grade will show less surface scratching than expected for a coin of its minted year, will have fewer knocks to the surface. These coins may have been in protective packaging for some time during their circulation and must be considered aesthetically better than bullion grade. Most likely these coins will be later minted years or very good quality older coins.

As Good As New

These coins are essentially as good as new, little to no surface scratches beautiful in quality and no knock or noticeable scuff marks. Coins rated at this point in our scale are most likely to have been capsuled or contained within packaging for the majority of their circulation. Just a little lower than the official rating of Mint Condition as they will have been handled more frequently than mint coins, however please note these coins have still been in circulation.

Mint Condition

These coins are mint condition, fresh of the press and perfectly preserved from print to packaging. Please note that Mint Stock, does not mean untouched by hands- but this condition coin ranking is as good as a gold coin comes to perfection.

All investment products displayed on our site are priced based on the live precious metal price and allows our customers to purchase metal in relation to how gold is trading as a commodity. Prices will be fixed once the item has been added to the basket and recalculated just before checking out. Please note, that items in your basket are not reserved at any price, and our still available to purchase by other customers. Your order is only confirmed once you have securely checked out and received confirmation through our site.

All our bullion is carefully checked and no coin is knowingly sold that has more than expected wear and tear for a coin of its age. If your product is not a graded coin, or sold as ‘mint condition’ then bullion is to be considered as a bullion item. It should be noted that our bullion grade coins, especially those of an earlier year may have knocks to the coins, these knocks or marks do not affect the specification of the coin in terms of its bullion value.

For any orders relating to bullion that Hatton Garden Metals order on your behalf please read the below carefully:

In the event that you wish to cancel an order for an item which you have paid for prior to its coming into bullion, in consequence of a price fluctuation, the cancellation charge will be 2.5% of the total order value, plus any consequential loss owing to the fluctuation in the price of the metal.

The right to cancel any order once accepted under Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 of the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 does not apply. This is because the price of all goods that we sell is dependent upon fluctuations in the financial markets that are beyond our control. If any customer wishes to cancel an accepted order, Hatton Garden Metals would be happy to buy this back from the customer.
