The day Britons were deciding whether to Brexit, the country’s Royal Mint experienced a marked spike in its bullion trading.


The Director of Bullion, Chris Howard, commented that on the day of the vote visits to the Royal Mint’s bullion trading platform,, recorded an increase by 550 percent compared with the day before. The opening of new accounts increased by almost 200 percent over the same period.

Among the mint’s products its Signature Gold bullion service proved particularly popular. This service allows investors to benefit from economies of scale by purchasing fractions of large gold bars from as little as £20.
