Gold Spot Price FAQ

What is the price of gold today?

The gold price today will update every 60 seconds in real-time during the trading day based on the market. To see the current gold price, please reference the gold price chart above.

What is the gold spot price?

The current market price of gold which can be bought for immediate delivery is called the gold spot price. The gold spot price is the price of one troy ounce of gold in US Dollars. Our website shows the real-time gold spot price, in addition to the historical gold price in the chart above. The gold spot price can fluctuate throughout the day, based on market factors such as supply, demand, economic events, and geopolitical events. The actual gold price you may pay to purchase gold in the form of gold bars or gold coins may differ from the gold spot price, based on costs of production, procurement, supply, and demand.

How is the Gold Spot Price Set?

The gold spot price is calculated from gold futures contracts on the Commodities Exchange (COMEX) to determine the price of gold today. The price of the contract is set by gold supply and demand.

What is the Gold Bid Price and the Gold Ask Price?

The gold bid price and the gold ask price are the prices at which gold can be bought and sold, respectively.

The gold bid price is the highest price the buyer is willing to pay for gold. When selling gold, a dealer will purchase gold at the bid price.

The gold ask price is the lowest price the seller is willing to sell gold. When buying gold, a dealer will sell gold at the ask price.

The difference between the gold bid price and the gold ask price is called the bid-ask spread, which can vary based on the current supply and demand in the market, transaction size, as well as other factors.

How often does the price of Gold change?

Gold is an actively traded asset, and is bought and sold constantly by traders, investors, banks, which causes the price of gold to change frequently. The gold price changes throughout the trading day and is updated in real-time on our website to provide the current gold price, whether you are interested in buying or selling gold.

What can affect the Gold Price?

The gold price is influenced by many factors, including economic factors such as interest rates and currency exchange rates. A rise in inflation could lead to an increase in gold demand, as the purchasing power of the currency decreases. Historically, gold has held its value over time. Non-economic factors also influence the price of gold, such as global events, political unrest, or wars which can lead to an increase in gold demand as a safe haven asset.

Can I buy Gold at the current spot price?

The price of physical gold is based on the current market gold price, as well as a premium over the gold spot price. Physical gold has a cost to procure, manufacture and distribute, which is why you cannot typically purchase gold for the gold spot price.

What is premium over spot?

The premium over spot is the markup an investor will pay above the raw gold value of a product. For example, if the gold spot price is $2,000 per ounce and an investor purchased a 1 oz gold product for $2,100, the premium over spot is $100, which is the difference between the $2,100 gold product and the $2,000 gold price.

How can I buy physical Gold?

You can buy physical gold from a reputable dealer online or from a local coin shop. Gold bullion are products are typically purchased for their gold content, and are in the form of gold coins, bars (ingots), or rounds, while collectible coins are typically purchased for both the metal value and the numismatic or collectible value.

There are several gold coins produced by sovereign mints around the world, including the American Gold Eagle and American Gold Buffalo from the United States Mint, the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf from the Royal Canadian Mint, the British Gold Britannia from The Royal Mint, the Australian Gold Kangaroo from The Perth Mint, and the Austrian Gold Philharmonic from the Austrian Mint. You can check out our selection of Gold Coins here.

The most popular size of gold bars is the 1 oz gold bar, also produced by renowned mints such as Pamp Suisse and Valcambi Suisse. Gold bars are produced in a variety of sizes to provide options for investors, including several gram sizes, up to a kilo. Our full selection of gold bars can be viewed here.

How much should I invest in Gold?

The amount you invest in gold depends on your overall investment goals. Gold is considered a safe-haven asset that could be a hedge against inflation, global tension, market uncertainty, as well as currency fluctuations, due to its finite nature and historical evidence of holding its value over time. We recommend working with a finance professional for any investment advice. Gold and other precious metals can be a way to diversify your portfolio.

What is the Gold/Silver ratio?

The gold/silver ratio is the price relationship between the current price of gold and the current price of silver in the market. The calculation is the price of gold divided by the price of silver. This ratio is tracked historically to see when silver may be relatively inexpensive relative to gold, and vice versa.
