Why Glint ?

Glint’s new global gold currency is making money fairer.

Our Mastercard and smartphone app lets you pay with gold, the most independent and reliable form of money, at the electronic point of sale, protecting you from systemic risk and inflation.

The Problem


The value the pound has lost since 1913.

Central bank policy erodes the purchasing power of paper money.

(Office for National Statistics)


UK bank account interest is lower than inflation.

When banks risk your money, the return doesn’t even cover the loss caused by inflation.

(Bank of England)


UK Retail Price Index inflation.

Your money is not worth what it used to be, depreciating over time.


27 years

The estimated average age of paper currencies.

All paper money returns to its intrinsic value of zero.

(The New Yorker)

£500 billion

The amount of new money created by the Bank of England in the last 10 years.
This extra money supply will lead to inflation.

(Bank of England)


Of people believe a global financial crisis is coming.



Of people do not trust banks to keep their money safe.


$247 trillion

Worldwide debt has risen to a record $247 trillion – more than three times global annual economic output.


The Solution

We felt it was unfair that money is prone to depreciate in ways we have no control over. We believe the ready-made solution has existed for millennia, it just hadn’t caught up with modern life – that solution is gold.

So, we built Glint to reintroduce gold as money,
as a global currency that can be used in today’s electronic payments world.

3000 years

Gold has maintained its purchasing power for millennia. Tried and tested, it has outlived all other forms of money.


Gold is only created when neutron stars collide and cannot be corrupted by humans or their institutions.


Gold is durable. It will still be here long after the last computer dies and humans leave the planet.


The value of gold is accepted by everyone, everywhere and at any time.


Gold has maintained its purchasing power over time while the value of paper money has been eroded. This has translated into an average increase in the sterling value of gold of around 8% per annum


Gold is held in independent, secure and insured vaults, protecting you from systemic risks & financial crises.


Glint enables gold to now be used in real-time electronic point of sale payments via Mastercard.


Glint will soon enable gold to be used for payments to and from bank accounts.
