Product Overview

The Royal Mint Responsibly Sourced Physical Gold ETC (RMAU) tracks the spot price of physical gold and is designed to offer investors an effective way to access the gold market, whilst also being shariah compliant.

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

It is custodied at the Mint rather than a bank’s vault. Uniquely retail investors can redeem for physical bars and coins. 

Part of the gold custodied by the ETC will be 100% recycled gold bars. Recycled gold is less carbon intensive than mined gold.

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

The bars held are 100% in compliance with the LBMA’s 2019 Responsible Sourcing guidelines. The highest responsible sourcing standard available.

The Royal Mint won Best Physical Gold ETP Issuer (USD 100m+) at the ETF Express European Awards 2021 following its launch in February 2020

Following the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, all gold bars of Russian origin were removed from the ETC.

Responsible sourcing of gold

RMAU aims to source all of its gold bars from the LBMA’s Responsible Sourcing program to assure investors that the gold is from conflict-free, legal sources.

The Royal Mint commissions external, third-party audits twice per year to verify that ethical procurement standards have been adhered to which is published on this site.

About The Royal Mint

The Royal Mint has an unbroken history of minting British coinage dating back over 1,100 years. Based in the Tower of London for over 500 years, by 1812 The Royal Mint had moved out of the Tower to premises on London’s Tower Hill. In 1967 the building of a new Royal Mint began on its current site in South Wales, UK, to accommodate the minting of UK decimal coinage.

Throughout history The Royal Mint’s name has been synonymous with precious metals and bullion. The organisation trades physical and digital precious metal worldwide via www.royalmintbullion.com and a global network of distributor partners.

The Royal Mint has also diversified into a number of other complementary businesses, building on the values that have been at the heart of the organisation throughout its history - authenticity, security, precious metals, craftsmanship and design.
