Looking to purchase.

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to add to my stack tomorrow, I've been thinking about buying a sovereign or a 1/4 brit, which would be my first ever gold purchase. I've noticed a few threads discussing each coin and I'm sort of leaning towards the sovereign and I've been looking on the internet for the best prices I can find. I'm just wondering if anybody could point me in the right direction and maybe tell me the maximum I should be paying for either coin and where I could get one at a fair price. Also, if I want to make a silver purchase at the same time should I buy my silver and gold from one of those European sites, so that I don't need multiple deliveries. Sorry for my naivety!

Coin cost is going to vary due to daily spot changes. I wouldn't worry too much, just buy from a trusted dealer like atkinsons or chards for your gold. Atkinsons prices include delivery, chards don't ( I think). You won't go far wrong with either of them. Some people like Hatton garden metals too.

Just don't over think this, if you buy from the above you can be pretty sure you are getting close to the best prices out there from a high st dealer.

Should say the above advice is for gold. For silver it's probably cheaper to buy from European mint or silver to go. It really depends how much you are buying though as delivery costs come into play

Considering the fact, that 1/4 gold Britannia is harder to find, I'd recommend buying sovereign. The prices fro 2019 are fairly nice, look at this price comparison

Atkinsons has the cheapest one + free delivery
