A premium gold buying and selling service has launched at Liverpool’s Royal Liver Building.

Liverpool Bullion offers clients the facility to buy and sell gold coins or bullion at highly competitive prices, based on the real-time, current spot trading price of gold.

Clients can purchase all of the leading gold coins such as krugerrands, gold sovereigns, gold eagles, gold maples, Australian kangaroos plus many more varieties.

It also stocks the finest quality gold bullion bars in a variety of sizes from one gram, five gram, 10 gram, 20 gram and one troy ounce up to one kilo from gold refiners such as Umicore and Argor Hereaus.

Unlike some gold dealers, Liverpool Bullion only buy and sell physical gold and do not trade in gold ETFs (exchange traded funds) or what is known as ‘paper gold’.

The firm says staff are highly trained and have many years’ experience in trading bullion.

The new service is situated in Liverpool Vaults, the state-of-the-art £1m purpose-built vault which opened earlier this year at the iconic Royal Liver Building.

This location overcomes some of the key objections to investing in physical gold, as clients’ gold will be stored within the high-security vault and available for collection in total privacy and complete security.

Liverpool Bullion was founded by entrepreneurs Séamus Fahy and David Walsh. They operate in four other locations including Dublin, Newcastle, Glasgow and London.

Co-founder Séamus Fahy said: “After the phenomenal success of Liverpool Vaults, which has been our busiest launch to date, we are excited to introduce Liverpool Bullion to the city.

“We want to expand the bullion market in the UK and make gold trading accessible – our new service in Liverpool gives us an opportunity to do just that. We look forward to welcoming new clients and finding the best products to suit their requirements.”

Co-founder David Walsh, added: “Not only does Liverpool Bullion offer clients an environment with total security – being housed within the vault – but we also offer them the ability to purchase, collect and store their precious metals in one place.

“The vault will only deal with LBMA-approved refineries so our clients can be sure that all gold we sell is ‘good-delivery’ gold. We also have a six-level testing set-up at Liverpool Bullion, where all gold moving through us is fully tested and verified.”

Liverpool Bullion is run by parent company Merrion Vaults, Europe’s largest independently-owned safe deposit company.
