How to buy gold bullion the safer, cheaper & easier way.

Paul Tustain (Founder of BullionVault) and Robert Glynne (CEO of BullionVault) take you on a tour of a working gold vault and explain how BullionVault can offer you the safest, cheapest and easiest way to own physical gold, silver and platinum bullion.

Until BullionVault, most people could only invest in gold, silver, platinum and palladium in the form of coins or small bars, which come with a significant mark up. BullionVault lets users buy any amount of bullion at the lowest possible prices – previously accessible only when making large-scale purchases in the wholesale bullion markets.


How to buy gold, silver, platinum and palladium on the BullionVault order board

You'll be amazed how quick and easy it is to buy gold, silver, platinum and palladium on BullionVault's live order board just by following our step-by-step guide.

Buy immediately at the prices shown, or set your own price and compete in the market to find a seller who will accept your price. When you’re ready, you can sell back in exactly the same way. It's like a stock exchange, but for pre-vaulted investment gold, silver and platinum, not for shares.

By allowing peer-to-peer trading and cutting out the middleman, BullionVault gives you better prices and faster trading.
