Gold's Historical and Ongoing Performance

Since 2007, gold has been on the increase rising steadily through the banking crisis to a peak in 2011. It has remained fairly high since and smashed records once again in 2019 and 2020. The periodic political upheavals, such as but not limited to, Brexit, Donald Trump’s presidency, and Coronavirus, have an impact on gold price. We often see an increase in gold price and in the demand for gold from our customers. We have an active page for market news where you can keep up to date with current affairs affecting the price of gold. Often when there is a significant change in price, both buyers and sellers rush to take advantage.

Gold Price over Time

Historical Gold Price

Historical performance is not, however, a predictor for the future price of the yellow metal. We advise all of our customers to research their gold investment plan thoroughly and not use a single source of information. We publish all of our advice in our gold investment advice blog. We also offer a live price graph with historical data back to the 19th century and offer a range of best value products for those interested in buying gold right now. 

If you are a firm believer that political and economic uncertainty pushes the price of gold up it would appear that now is a good time to invest. Everywhere we look, be it in the print media or on-line there appears to be no end in sight to political upheavals, wars and global financial crisis. With this said, gold price looks likely to remain buoyant and should be a viable option for your investment portfolio.

Note: We are one of the very few bullion dealers offering historic gold prices back to the 1800's and historic silver prices earlier still into the 18th century!
