    Frequently asked questions

    What's the difference between buying gold coins vs bars?

    Although largely similar, gold coins and bars do have their differences. Unlike bars that come in set amounts, gold coins are significantly smaller, meaning they offer more flexibility and control upon sale. As gold coins come in small packages, it's easy to sell parts of a gold coin collection over time. On the flip side, gold bars are better suited to those looking to make larger acquisitions. Bars of gold have the same benefits as gold coins regarding maintenance requirements and retaining their value, but they have lower premiums. This is due to the higher production costs for coins.

    How should I store gold bars?

    To ward off erosion, keep your gold bars in a cool, dry setting. We'd also recommend storing your gold bar somewhere secure – like a safe or safety deposit box at a bank. It's a good idea to insure your gold coins too, just in case.

    How do I buy gold coins or bars?

    If you're ready to purchase a gold coin or bar, doing so with us is easy. Simply browse our collection of gold coins and bars and add them to your cart. Then, once you're ready, check out and we'll handle the rest.

    What different gold bar sizes are there?

    Gold bars come in a range of different shapes and sizes. In the UK, gold bars generally start at around 1g and can be purchased in any weight up to 1kg. 100oz and 400oz are also available. However, these tend to be reserved for banks, funds, or institutional investors. The most common gold bar sizes include:
    • 1 gram
    • 2 grams
    • 2.5 grams
    • 5 grams
    • 10 grams
    • 20 grams
    • 50 grams
    • 100 grams
    • 250 grams
    • 500 grams
    • 1 kilogram

    Can I buy gold bars from the bank?

    No, you're unable to buy gold bullion bars from the bank. The Bank of England holds more than 400,000 bars of gold but stopped their sale in the 1930s. Buying gold bullion bars from the internet from well-known distributors such as H&T is the best way to guarantee the quality and authenticity of the gold bars you purchase.

    What should I look for when buying gold bars?

    The most important thing to look for when you're buying a gold bar is the purity level. Genuine bullion gold bars will always feature the name of the manufacturer, the purity, and the weight. Where possible, you should look for gold bars with a purity rating of at least 99.5%. As a reputable gold bar dealer in the UK, you can rely on us to stock only the best gold bars. Our commitment to stocking only the best quality gold bars means we've got an "Excellent" rating on Trustpilot.

    What is meant by the purity level of gold bars?

    The purity level of a gold bar is measured in carats or fineness. When referring to gold fineness, this is stating the percentage of gold in a bar vs other components. Although you might be more familiar with carats, fineness is a more precise scale. This makes it the preferred metric for measuring purity. Roughly speaking, a gold bar with a purity rating of 999.9 fineness (or 24 carats) is considered the purest form of gold. This is because it is generally accepted it is impossible to achieve or prove 1,000 fineness, in other words, 100% pure gold.

    How much is a 5g gold bar worth in the UK?

    A 5g gold bar is on the lower weight side, but you'd be surprised at how much it's still worth. In fact, 5g bars of gold are valued upwards of £280.

    How do I know if a gold bar is authentic?

    The best way to test whether a gold bar is authentic is by conducting the 'ping' test. Genuine gold will make a high-pitched pinging noise when it comes into contact with another type of metal. If you hear a dull thud, there's a good chance your gold is mixed with other metals. Another way to guarantee that your gold bar is authentic is by shopping with us. When you buy from Est1987, you can be sure that you're getting legitimate, superior-quality gold bars.

    How soon can I receive my gold coins or bars?

    If you're based within the UK (including the Highlands and Islands), you'll receive your order within 5-7 working days.
    All gold coin orders worth over £150 will be sent using a secure courier. Below that, we'll use Royal Mail's 2nd Class delivery.
    If, for any reason, your delivery is going to be delayed, we'll notify you as soon as possible. See our delivery and returns policy.
