Spear’s Review

The Royal Mint’s head of bullion investments Toby Osborne offers a ‘bespoke’ service for clients looking to invest in precious metal approved by the Queen. Osbourne, who is also a presenter and commentator at Bristol City Football club, can assist with all bullion matters. ‘Be it through gold, silver or platinum, investment in bullion has long been a chosen means of protecting one’s wealth – especially in recent years,’ says the firm. ‘The Royal Mint serves as a trusted entity, offering a reliable way to buy and sell bullion, as well as personal services such as account management.’

Of particular note is the firm’s commitment to ESG principles and only working with suppliers that comply with their ‘strict criteria’.
