Buy Gold and Silver Bars or Coins

We are delighted to provide you with our online gold & silver bullion service. This page has a direct link to Sharps Pixley’s online trading platform, which will allow you to purchase gold and silver bars and coins directly from one of the oldest names in bullion broking.

You can instruct Sharps Pixley to make your gold available for collection at our Knightsbridge or St John’s Wood branch by selecting the ‘In-Store Pickup’ shipping method option at the checkout stageSharps Pixley will contact you once your order has been received to establish your preferred Metropolitan branch for collection. You can then safely place the purchased bullion in your own safe deposit box in the security of our London vaults.  

Sharps Pixley has a long and illustrious history dating back to 1778 in the UK. Today Sharps Pixley provides a leading-edge web platform, from which customers can research, as well as buy and sell small bars and coins. In 2013, Degussa Goldhandel of Germany acquired Sharps Pixley, resulting in a merger of two leading historical names in precious metals.

Sharps Pixley will be acting as your counterparty to any bullion transaction. Our role is purely introductory, for which we shall receive a commission from Sharps Pixley. You will not, in any way, be disadvantaged on price, which will be the same live price regardless of whether you access their online shop directly or via this website.

Our recent editorial “Why store your gold in a safe deposit box?” outlines the advantages of keeping your gold (and other valuable items) in your own safe deposit box. It was the increasing desire by individuals to take physical possession of their gold, combined with the growing fears about the risks of home storage, which prompted us to provide this new service.

Please note that Sharps Pixley will be responsible for all aspects of the bullion transaction, including conducting anti-money laundering checks on prospective clients where appropriate. Metropolitan Safe Deposits will simply look after your storage needs (and insurance, if required, whilst in our custody), just as we have been doing for many decades.
