Officially Designated Tax Free Gold Coins in all EU Member States

Investment-grade gold bullion is considered tax free gold (zero rated for VAT) across the EU. This applies whether the bullion is in the form of coins or bars, however to qualify for exemption, the gold must be of a fineness greater or equal to 995, or for post-1800 legal tender coins of a purity over .900

To further qualify as investment-grade bullion a coin’s sale price should be no greater than it’s intrinsic gold weight plus up to 80%. Numismatic and collectible coins are not exempt.

eu-gold-dealersThe following is a list of tax free gold coins agreed to meet the criteria established in Article 344(1), point (2) of Council Directive 2006/112/EC (special scheme for investment gold) and named in The Official Journal Of The European Union C 385/6

All listed coins are considered zero-rated for Value Added Tax (VAT) in all EU Member States.

Non-gold bullion coins and gold coins that do not qualify for zero VAT are taxed on a country-by-country basis listed at the bottom of this page.

New Silver, Platinum and Palladium bullion bars, rounds and coins, plus non-qualifying gold and numismatic coins are all rated at the full standard VAT rate for the country. Some countries treat legal tender silver coins differently, charging either zero, or a reduced rate.

This becomes an issue when one country charges VAT at 25% on legal tender silver bullion coins, whilst another charges 0% – and a thriving cottage industry now exists to enable citizens of high VAT countries to buy their investment metals in another EU-member state, take “delivery” in that country and then ship to their home country side-stepping local VAT.

Although perfectly legal, this is now becoming a grey area and some countries, notably Sweden are clamping down on this trade.

The only other way for EU bullion dealers to offer truly zero-rated silver coins – and indeed silver, platinum and palladium bullion at zero VAT, is by ensuring the metals remain vaulted outside of the EU, otherwise VAT will be payable at the full local amount.

Some EU / EFTA countries treat silver bullion differently. Estonia charges 0% VAT on legal tender silver coins. In Germany and The Netherlands, VAT is only applied to the dealer’s margin for eligible silver coins. Some UK dealers (notably Chards) sell pre-owned silver bullion bars using a similar margin scheme. Although outside of the EU, Norway is an EFTA country and like Estonia, charges VAT at 0% on silver coins when delivered in-country.

EU CAPITAL GAINS TAX ON BULLION
As with VAT, Capital Gains Tax (CGT) varies depending on the bullion product and country. Typically there is full CGT paid on all precious metals bars and rounds, however coins that are “Legal Tender” can be exempt from any CGT – this is the case in the UK.

This leads to confusing situations where legal tender silver platinum and palladium coins can be exempt from CGT, but liable for VAT. Gold legal tender coins on the other hand, are exempt from both CGT where applicable and VAT – the #1 reason UK Gold Sovereigns and Britannias are such popular coins with UK investors – even when allowing for their often higher premiums compared to bars and rounds.

Some other countries such as Spain charge additional CGT-like taxes on assets when a citizen leaves the country permanently. If you intend to leave Spain and have lived there for at least 10 years in the prior 15 years, you may face an “exit tax”, which is applied to unrealised gains on certain assets wherever they are in the world – including gold.
