Our firm was created because we firmly believe that gold and other precious metals should form part of a diversified investment portfolio. We also believe that investment in such a precious commodity needs a personal service.
What sets us apart
Precious metal bullion is traded like any other commodity. If acquired elsewhere, your physical assets could have been owned by many people before you, transported and vaulted in a number of locations.
At Stunt & Co. we believe that if you are investing in something as precious as gold or silver it should be treated with the respect that its value commands. So to make sure our clients have access to the finest products, we go one step further: we refine our own investment grade gold and other precious metals in the UK.
All our products carry our own Stunt & Co. stamp and the quality assurance hallmark of the Sheffield Assay Office.
If you want to make your investment truly your own we can help you design and personalise your assets. We work with craftsmen to create and design unique pieces that once approved can go straight into production.
To find out more about our bespoke service please contact us for further information.
Stunt & Co. products are independently Assayed by the Sheffield Assay Office, a UK government facility with oversight by the relevant Secretary of State.
The precious metals refined by us are the only bars and bullion that bear the Tudor Rose of Sheffield hallmark, providing the highest level of quality assurance to investors.
Everything we produce is also issued with a certificate by the Sheffield Assay Master which provides a guarantee that our products are of the finest quality.
Stunt & Co. have a state-of-the-art precious metal refining facility that process gold & silver.
Our facility is located within the Sheffield Assay Office which gives us quick access to their independent analytical and assaying services.
Our refining facilities produce bullion, bars and commemorative coins which we sell directly to our clients.
We can process 400kg of raw gold a day and cast 2,400kg investment grade gold refined bars per week.
Producing Stunt & Co. investment grade precious metals
Gold and other precious metals are rarely found in their purest form. For example, raw gold always contains impurities such as copper and silver, while recycled gold is typically alloyed with other metals. Refining removes all impurities to produce 999.9 pure or fine gold. Once it is assayed our refined material is cast into a range of investment grade products including bars and coins, bearing the hallmark of the Sheffield Assay Office.
Stunt & Co. procures unrefined gold and precious metals directly from mines and by recycling.
Our clients need to know that the raw gold and precious metals we procure is sourced responsibly.
We carry out all the background checks necessary on the suppliers we work with. This ensures that the producers themselves benefit from regulated working conditions and health and safety standards.
Recycled gold and other precious metals, when refined, have exactly the same value and are indistinguishable from newly mined metals.
At Stunt & Co. we purchase recycled gold in volume as well as investment grade precious metals which we re-cast into new Stunt & Co. bars and coins.
