Gold and Silver Price by Weight

Track the gold and 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 per gram in the UK last week" or "how much is a kilogram of gold worth". 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 forgot to use our metal ratios page to compliment the live metal graphs.

Price of Gold in Different Currencies

Keep track of the gold and 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 on 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 inherit 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.

Gold Silver Price Ratio

The gold silver ratio, simply put, is how many ounces of silver can be used to purchase an ounce of gold. For example, if the gold silver ratio is currently 70:1, one would be able to purchase 70 ounces of silver to an ounce of gold. It must be noted that, (obviously) the same unit of measurement must be used for both sides of the ratio, generally troy ounce (31.1035 grams) is used.
The live gold silver ratio is shown on this page but if there is ever a time you can only access our live prices page then the ratio is simply the live gold price divided by the live silver price. For example, the live gold price (troy ounces) is 705. The silver price (troy ounces) is 9.35, therefore 705/9.35 = 75.4 – 75.4 troy ounces of silver can be purchased with one troy ounce of gold. The figure can be shown as 75.4:1 or 75.4.

Relevance

Some sources state that the gold silver ratio is no longer relevant in today’s markets. We believe it is a worthwhile measure, but would stress that it is difficult if not impossible to state what the ratio “should” be. The higher the ratio would indicate that silver is “cheap”. If the ratio is lower, some investors may turn to invest in gold, possibly exchanging their silver in the process.

History

When the first coins were made over 2,500 years ago in ancient Greece, the ratio of gold to silver was generally between 10:1 and 13.5:1, depending on the relative proximity of gold or silver mines. In the 1930's and 1940's the ratio reached 90:1 or higher, and in 1991 it peaked at about 98:1, although we have seen one source which claims over 100:1 peak. Other sources state that the gold silver ratio is no longer relevant in today's markets. We believe it is a worthwhile measure, but would stress that it is difficult if not impossible to state what the ratio "should" be.

Gold Platinum Price Ratio

For those investors interested in the relative prices of gold and platinum, we provide this page which shows an up to date ratio of gold to platinum. We believe it is a worthwhile measure, but would stress that it is difficult if not impossible to state what the ratio "should" be.
Obviously because this is a ratio, there are no units of weight or currency needed or quoted.
