The concept of the one ounce bullion coin was to provide an easy way to purchase small quantity of gold and silver in the form of coins. Britannia gold bullion coins were introduced in 1987 in four different weights : 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz and 1/10 oz (for the face values of £100, £50, £25 and £10). From 1987 to 2012, these coins were produced in 22 carats gold. To be in line with the majority of other bullion coins from world mint, the Royal Mint decided in 2013 to change the alloy of the gold Britannia bullion coin to 24 carats 99.99 %%.

One ounce gold coins are popular in the gold bullion market. They are a great way to split your precious metal holdings in smaller fractions. In fact, a large gold bar is not always the best option.
