Why RMG?

RMG combines direct ownership of gold with the efficient price discovery and trade execution offered on a trading platform. These features, coupled with zero on-going annual management or storage fees, set RMG apart from other gold-based investments.

Higher Return on Investment

This chart compares the value of a hypothetical investment of one thousand US dollars ($1,000) in RMG vs. a gold bullion security ETF as of January 2007. The traditional gold ETF is assumed to charge an average 0.4% annual storage and management fee. Over time, these fees for the ETF add up, giving an investment in RMG a projected higher return than physical gold. The additional RMG projected return is shown as a percentage of the initial investment.

Benefits of RMG

RMG is offered in a landmark partnership between the world’s leading export mint, The Royal Mint, and CME Group, the world’s leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace.

Cost of Ownership

Fees can add up and eliminating them can make a difference to your return on investment. RMG will have no on-going management or storage fees and efficient price discovery through a digital trading platform, providing one of the lowest cost and most flexible forms of direct gold ownership.


The physical gold that the RMG in issue represent will be held in The Royal Mint's vault, a highly secure, on-site bullion storage facility. The gold will be reconciled daily by The Royal Mint and will be physically inspected and certified by independent auditors regularly.

Direct Ownership

One RMG represents ownership of 1g of fine gold, stored securely within The Royal Mint's vault and allocated exclusively for RMG holders, where RMG holders have full title to their gold holdings at all times. RMG holders have the flexibility to request physical delivery of their gold from The Royal Mint.


RMG is an alternative way to invest in and trade physical gold. It aims to provide the investment performance of the London Gold Market with the transparency of an exchange-traded asset. Each RMG represents direct ownership of physical gold bullion.

Transparent Trading

Investors will be able to trade RMG with real-time pricing 24/7, 365 days a year, in the secondary market. With simple exchange fee structures and public order book trading, investors have access to the full depth of liquidity and price information.

Limited Issue

A set amount of RMG will be released through the initial offering and we have clear policies about any further issuance. With our commitment to the market, we will support premium pricing through buying demand and provide investment managers with a stable, known and controlled base of gold in which to invest.
