Buckinghamshire BS has launched the third issue of its Chiltern Gold Mine account, proving you can never get enough of a good thing.

A one year fixed term fixed rate regular savings account, it pays 5.10% on maturity, one of the highest rates in its field.

A minimum monthly investment of £25 (maximum £250) is required over 12 consecutive months to earn the advertised rate: missing a payment will see the rate on its Easy Access account being paid for the full term, which currently stands at 0.10%.

Payments cannot be amended during the term, while no additional investments are accepted either. All payments into the account must be new money to the institution.

Early access is also not permitted, so it's essential that the payments you decide to make can definitely be spared for the one year term.

This account has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
