Glint is rooted in the belief in financial fairness for all. Glint was invented to liberate everyone from our current monetary system.
For millennia, gold has been the trusted store of wealth. In today’s world, it’s a secure hedge against inflation and a stable currency when stock markets are volatile.
Glint offers an alternative to fiat currencies enabling our clients to buy, spend, save and send allocated gold with the flexibility of Mastercard.
Buy gold safe in the knowledge that it is allocated gold, owned by you.
You can purchase any amount, any time, at market rate with our low fee at 0.5%
Gold is also available to buy on weekends at 1% fee.
Holding gold is a great hedge against inflation and offers stability during stock market volatility and global conflicts.
Your gold balance is secured by physical gold held in Brink's Vault in Switzerland, insured by Lloyds of London.
You can now share US Dollars, between Glint accounts, instantly, securely and for free.
Using the Glint Debit card you can buy a coffee, your groceries or your next flight with gold. Spend with ease and confidence anywhere you see Mastercard®
The Glint Mastercard® is accepted globally in 210 countires.
Some banks loan gold to make money. Cryptocurrencies that are backed by gold are a digital token that has a claim on gold, so you don’t own the gold directly. An exchange-traded fund (ETF) doesn’t allow you to own the gold directly either.
At Glint, we’re different. All gold is allocated gold, owned by you and held in Brink's Vault in Switzerland.
In addition to holding your assets in Gold, we also offer our clients the freedom to save and spend at home and abroad in three of the world’s major currencies: USD, GBP and EUR.
The Glint App allows you to hold multi-currency accounts spend in currency and transfer between them and other account holders.
