Marking the anniversary of a successful first year for the Bullion trading website, The Royal Mint has announced the addition of a new Kilo Gold Cast Bar to its offering. With a 57% increase in bullion sales since the launch of the trading site in September 2014, the 1,000-year-old organization is expanding both the bullion range and that of its Royal Mint Refinery (RMR) brand.
While The Royal Mint remains a very British institution, its bullion customers are truly international. With customers that span nearly 35 countries, including the USA, India, China, and Canada, the new Kilo Gold Cast Bar presents a high-value purchase opportunity for serious investors and those who wish to own and trade larger amounts of gold.
Revived earlier this year after an absence of 47 years, the world-renowned bullion Royal Mint Refinery (RMR) brand expanded the bullion range to offer gold and silver minted bars bearing the historic marque. The kilo bar, like all Royal Mint bullion bars, bears the branded RMR logo, established trademark since 1852.
In today’s diverse and competitive bullion market, RMR branded bars are a trusted and economical way of owning gold and silver with The Royal Mint offering bullion bars of 999.9 fine gold and 999 fine silver in a variety of weights, from one gram to 100 grams.
Customers will be given the option of having the bullion delivered direct to their home through an insured postal service, or to store their gold in The Vault™, The Royal Mint’s on-site precious metal storage facility – which is protected at all times by the Ministry of Defence.
By purchasing bullion direct from www.royalmintbullion.com and storing it in The Vault™ customers can benefit from a Buy Back Facility, assured that their physical Bullion will be held securely outside of the banking and London Clearing System. This means it can be liquidated, at customer’s request, at any time.
The Royal Mint’s trading website provides constantly updated live prices for gold and silver at a rate linked to the current precious metal price so that customers can confidently buy at the best possible price.
Chris Howard, The Royal Mint’s Director of Bullion, says, “We launched royalmintbullion.com a year ago, which opened up gold trading to an audience that may previously have been put off by the perceived complexities of the market. To date, we have already attracted more than 12,000 customers from across the world.
“Our 1,000 year history and world-renowned heritage means that we are globally recognised as a reliable authority on precious metals. As royalmintbullion.com passes its first anniversary and begins to mature, we wanted our offering to reflect this and felt the Kilo Gold Cast Bar adds depth to our range and will appeal to the serious investor”.
The Kilo Gold Cast Bar is 53mm x 118mm with a thickness of 8mm. The cost of the Kilo Bar, as with all bullion products, will vary depending on the price of gold at the time of purchase.

About The Royal Mint
The Royal Mint has an unbroken history of minting British coinage dating back over 1,000 years. By the late 13th century the organization was based in the Tower of London and remained there for over 500 years. By 1812 The Royal Mint had moved out of the Tower to premises on London’s Tower Hill. In 1967 the building of a new Royal Mint began on its current site in South Wales, UK.
While The Royal Mint’s finest traditions are always respected, it continually innovates in order to stay at the forefront of world minting, embracing the latest production techniques and technology in order to offer excellence to our clients across the globe. By underpinning our proud heritage with a highly progressive outlook, The Royal Mint produces coins that remain a byword for trust and reliability the world over.
There were estimated to be 28.9 billion UK coins in circulation at 31 March 2014 , with a total face value of over £4 billion, all manufactured by The Royal Mint. In total, nearly 2 billion UK coins were issued during 2013-14.
As well as over 1,000 years of producing British coinage, The Royal Mint has long been trusted with the currencies of other countries. It has served more than 100 issuing authorities around the world and currently meets approximately 15% of global demand, making us the world’s leading export mint.
The Royal Mint has been making official military campaign medals since it was commissioned to make awards for soldiers who fought in the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. The year 2012 was of particular significance for The Royal Mint’s medal-making team, with the manufacture of all 4,700 Victory Medals for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The Royal Mint has recently introduced a new fineness of Britannia bullion coins and a highly-secure on-site bullion vault storage facility, building on the gold Sovereign’s long-standing reputation for integrity, accuracy. This positions The Royal Mint and its bullion products as a premium proposition in this marketplace.
