Report How To Buy Gold? in Gold and other precious metals Posted August 27, 2008 There are many web sites where you can buy gold, bars or coins and have it shipped to you. There is no vat or import duty so you don't worry about that. I wouldn't trust wiring my money to a Nigerian coin shop though . If you don't want to do that you can show up in person at a bullion dealers and walk out with it. They will ask for id and proof of address though (only criminals and terrorists buy gold). Hatton garden has everything you could want with shiny metals and sparlky stones. you won't get asked for id in hatton gardens.
