The Royal Mint Physical Gold ETC

Fund Overview

The Royal Mint Physical Gold ETC (RMAU) is designed to offer investors an effective way to access the gold market as it tracks the spot price of physical gold.  

It is the first financial product to be sponsored by The Royal Mint and the first gold ETC custodied with a European Sovereign Mint.

The ETC is backed by London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) Good Delivery bars held on a segregated basis.  The gold will be stored and guarded  in The Royal Mint's highly secure vault in Llantrisant, Cardiff.

The value of your investment may go down as well as up and past performance is no indication of future performance. Your capital is at risk.


The Royal Mint won Best Physical Gold ETP Issuer (USD100m+) at the ETF Express European Awards 2021 following its launch in February 2020.
