Information

If you're looking to buy gold or silver why not review our range of one ounce coins. Firstly review the spot gold price above and then view our entire gold range by clicking here or you can find silver on this link here.

Weekly Gold Price

Track the live gold price and live silver price in the following weights: troy ounce (tr/oz), grams (g) and kilograms (kg). You can answer questions such as "what is the value of an ounce of gold yesterday?", "what is the price of gold UK?" or "what is the sterling gold price?". Find answers to your own questions by using the filters next to the graph.

Gold and silver investors tend to use the troy ounce as the unit of measure. For ease, this is abbreviated to "ounce" on the charts but it should be noted that the troy ounce is not the same as the avoirdupois ounce and in fact is 3 grams heavier at 31.1035g. The origin of the troy weight system is unknown although there is speculation that it is linked to Champagne fairs at Troyes in France. A second hypothesis is that the troy system is in fact of Muslim origin by way of the Gold Dirhem. Do get in touch if you have any more information on the source of the weight system as we would like to know more! We offer grams, kilograms and troy ounce as options so you can use the graphs to fit your budget and even the items you wish to buy or sell. Don't forget to use our metal ratios page to compliment the live metal graphs.These will tell you the price of gold UK. 

Spot Gold Price

"Spot Gold Price" or "Gold Spot Price" is a term used when referring to specific coins or specific weight. It is the exact intrinsic value of gold at a moment in time.

Gold Price in Pounds

You can view the sterling gold price on our live gold price charts. If you're not looking for the gold price in pounds, you can also view the gold price in US dollars and the gold price in euros. 

Spot Silver Price

"Spot Silver Price" is the same as spot gold just for silver. You can view our page on the spot price of silver in ounces 

Price of Gold in Different Currencies

Keep track of the live gold price and live silver price with our popular live feed bullion charts. Gold prices are displayed in three currencies, US Dollars, Pounds Sterling, and Euros. Use the filters to select weekly gold price, monthly gold price, all time gold price. All data can be shown in either gold price per ounce, gold price per kilogram or gold price per gram. Our charts can help you make informed decisions on the best time to invest in gold, silver, platinum and palladium. For the most part of documented human history, fiat currencies such as the Pound and Dollar were always backed with physical gold bullion. This, in theory, meant that you could trade in your coins for real gold! Fractional banking systems have since taken over as there was not enough gold to actually back up the money for ever expanding economies but this does not mean that gold and other precious metals are unaffected by currency fluctuations. For example changes in the price of gold in Pounds may occur when the value of sterling rises and gold will drop. If you then look at the price of gold in other currencies you may be surprised to find out that this is not replicated. For those investors able to buy and sell in a range of currencies you can use this to your advantage.

Even though we are long gone with the gold standard many central banks and investors still like to own physical gold bullion due to its inherent value and as a hedge against inflation. As we all know currency systems are very prone to inflation and deflation and owning gold is a way to protect and secure wealth during these periods. When various other investments and currencies show weakness and are under threat gold price will tend to rise indicated the precious metal is still holding its own as a stable investment choice.

The London Bullion Market Association Gold Fix

What is the "gold fix" or "gold fixing"? The LBMA "gold fix" occurs twice a day and is a benchmark for the industry. How is the price of gold and silver determined you may ask. The price fix is set at 10:30 and 15:00 GMT after auctions between some of the biggest traders in the gold industry. The fix allows for a more streamlined process of buying and selling and is used by gold mines, refineries and central banks. Most retailers and smaller businesses still operate on the live gold price and on this site the price you see for a gold coin or a gold bar at the live current gold rate.

Gold Price over Time

Does gold hold its value? How does golds intrinsic value change? Using the dropdowns you can select different times to view the fluctuations in live metal prices. You are in control and can build the chart that you wish to see. It may also be worthwhile to favourite the graph in your browser so you can come back to it at your convenience. Here at Chards, we cannot be sure what will happen to the price of gold or the price of silver tomorrow or gold in the future. It is common proactive to analyse history and try to make sense of relationships between various drivers such as currency, precious metal ratios (e.g. gold to silver ratio) and world affairs both politically and economically. We hope our graphs and dataset help you to understand gold price going up or gold price going down to reach a better informed decision about the right time to buy gold or silver.

Gold and Silver Price Projections (Forecasts)

We often get asked questions such as "will gold rebound?", "Can we predict price movements?", "is gold price climbing?", "are silver prices going down?" but we don't have an answer to any these questions as we cannot see the future. You can obviously view the historical gold and silver price data, link it to political movements, terrorism, banking decisions and other world events to try and make sense of the price changes. This way we invite you to understand and reach your own conclusions on why gold prices are falling or why silver prices may be increasing. If you want to know why the price of gold went up in 2012 please use our data with your own research to draw conclusions and similarly why it dropped in 2013 only to increase in price again in 2016.

In conclusion, we cannot offer any investment advice or see into our crystal ball. We cannot provide gold and silver forecasts for tomorrow, the next 5 years, in 2020 or even next week but we do offer historical data should you compare the gold price over the last 100 years or 5 years. Our data stretches back to 1833 for gold and 1791 for silver.
