Carrying Gold bars from Dublin(Ireland) to London(UK)

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what are the restrictions? How much weight/ value of gold bars or coins can I carry from Dublin to London without having to pay custom duties or cause any issues.

Rather be safe than sorry..

Thanks in advance!

I'd not risk any more than 4 Britannia one ounce coins. No more than £10K value, across your entire party/group/family beyond which all your/group/family 'money' could be confiscated. VAT exempt gold (purity/legal tender). Preferably with receipts/proof of source of funds/purchase (otherwise potential risk of confiscation on the assumption of it being the proceeds of illicit activities). Even then I'd be more inclined to ferry/rail (drive) rather than fly. Many years since I last drove/ferry (London-Holyhead-Dublin/return), the 20 mph Welsh speed limit must be a real pain nowadays, so I'd probably use the London-Liverpool-Dublin/return choice if driving.
