Atkinsons Bullion & Coins

2019 has (so far) given us some exciting and beautiful gold and silver coins, as well as some returning favourites. As we’re heading towards the end of the year; we thought we’d take a look at 2019’s most popular and top selling bullion coins available in gold and silver here at Atkinsons, as well as take a look to the future with some of the most anticipated 2020 coins.

This week sees the release of the 2020 UK Britannia Coins, in both gold and silver, for pre-order. The Britannia is a famous British bullion coin, exclusively minted by the Royal Mint in gold since 1987 and in silver since 1997. Since it was launched in 1987 as the first European investment coin, the Britannia has become extremely popular with both investors and collectors. But who is the strong yet graceful Britannia, who so beautifully graces the reverse of these coins? What is the allure of this popular British coin?

Civilisations all across the world have coveted and revered gold for as long as records have existed. This most precious and useful of metals features unique properties, and it is thanks to these that make it a top choice for a wide variety of industries. In this blog, we take a look at some of the many uses for gold today.

The gold price has risen by around 50% in the last ten years, and some experts believe we could possibly see our favourite precious metal soar to new heights over the next couple of years. Could we really see gold hit that magic $2,000 mark?

Are gold and silver a good investment? Everyone has their own reasons for looking to invest in precious metals, the most powerful reason being they are well known for holding their value over time - especially in times of economic uncertainty. Here are five top reasons why many investors choose gold and silver:

Global economic troubles and fears of recession over the last few months have led to the safe haven buying of gold by investors, and the last few weeks have seen the price skyrocket. Soaring debt and falling economies are a current reality, and have led to many asking: would a return to the gold standard be the answer?

For first time investors, or those relatively new to the gold and silver bullion market, it’s perfectly natural to feel a little intimidated by some of the ‘lingo’ used by those already in the know. However, this should not put you off investing in precious metals. Follow our jargon busting guide to ‘metal-speak’ and you will soon become savvy in the terminology commonly used in the gold and silver market.

The last couple of weeks have seen gold smash through the ceiling, bypassing its highest ever price and skyrocketing upwards. The early hours of this morning saw the price break £1,249 – so what is the reason for these heights, and will they hold?

Tonight, on Thursday 1st August, the gold price in GBP has broken through to reach its highest ever recorded gold price on record. As I write this, new heights never seen before have been reached tonight. There is so much to say on the matter, but it is only right that in these circumstances I give you my own personal opinions. This is in no way to influence you on how you should act, as we are not investment advisors, but we can reflect the market position and its history so far.
