What is the price of gold today?

The gold price today is shown here on The Gold Bullion Co.’s live gold price charts. Prices are in GBP and show the gold price in UK.

These charts show the current pure gold price per troy ounce, the traditional unit of weight used for precious metals. 1 troy ounce = 31.1034768 grams.

We base all product pricing on the twice daily LBMA (London Bullion Market Association) Gold Price Fix. This ensures our pricing remains competitive across our huge range of gold bullion and gold coin products and in line with market valuations.

Be aware that gold bullion products are charged at a small premium above the live price of gold. This additional fee covers the cost of production and packaging.

The value of gold

Gold is often regarded as a safe haven with investors, who trust its long history of stability even in times of economic uncertainty.

Because gold is well-known for holding its price, many investors who buy gold do so with the intention of holding on to it for a long time.

Which products you buy and how much gold you invest in will depend entirely on your own budget and personal circumstances.

How to compare gold prices

You can view and compare gold prices using our historic gold price charts, which allow you to analyse trends and fluctuations in the price of gold over time.

These charts show the previous week, month, quarter, half-year, year or year to date, as well as from 1970 to the current year. Use the buttons just above the chart to switch between views. If you’re looking for specific dates, enter them in the date boxes to the top right of the chart.

Our historical gold price charts show the evening fix price as set by the LBMA for each business day. All gold price data is correct at close of business on each day as indicated.

Is it a good time to buy gold?

Unfortunately, we’re unable to give personal recommendations or advice. If you’re new to investing in gold, our investing guide will provide you with a detailed overview of everything you need to consider.

Other than that if you’re wondering if now is a good time to buy gold or not, our best advice would be to keep a close eye on the gold price charts yourself for a few weeks (or preferably months) until you feel confident enough to make that judgement for yourself.
