Should you buy Queen’s gold coins and bullion?

3 June, 2022

In today’s Exponential Investor:

  • Queen Lizzie’s gold
  • Buying gold that isn’t gold
  • Is a cat as heavy as a £600,000 bar?

It is the Queen’s Jubilee long weekend, which (according to The Royal Mint) means, “shared lunches, street parties and concerts.”

We’re not so sure about the whole “shared lunches” thing, but we are sure there will be plenty of celebration here in the UK.

It also means that due to there being a two-day bank holiday, the markets are closed.

That doesn’t mean you should stop thinking about your investments.

In fact, for many people this weekend is a good reminder that perhaps setting some money aside for some bullion coins or bars isn’t such a bad idea.

It’s something we’ve been looking at for a while and may very well action this weekend.

After all, if you pop on to the Royal Mint website, you’ll find everything from James Bond 1OZ gold bullion bars to special gold “proof” coins celebrating “Queen Lizzie’s” longest reign in British history.

However, if you’re thinking about getting some gold or silver collectible coins, or perhaps some of the more expensive gold bars or coins, what do you need to know?

What are the things to look out for? What are the things you need to understand?

And if you’re looking around the market for bars or coins, what are some of the dangers to look out for to ensure that you’re not getting ripped off?

To celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee in our own unique way in today’s Exponential Investor podcast, we look at all these things and more.

If you’ve ever thought about buying silver or gold coins or bars, then today’s episode is a must watch (or listen).
