Import of gold and silver bullion to the UK

Max Jepcott made this Freedom of Information request to HM Revenue and Customs

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear HM Revenue & Customs,

1. Your website says any information regarding the importation of Krugerands, or gold and silver bullion (IHTM21024 - Types of asset: Krugerrands, gold and silver bullion) has been withheld because of exemptions in the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Why?

2. Does HM Revenue and Customs levy charges on the individual bringing into the UK their own personal collection of coins and bullion, namely:

- Bullion coins (both silver and gold), produced by foreign Government mints, which have a face value in the currency of the country they were minted in.

- Bullion, in the form of small minted bars, produced by private mints.

If the answer to these questions is yes, what are the charges?

Yours faithfully,

Max Jepcott
