What is the Spot Price of Gold?

The spot price of Gold is the market price at which one ounce of Gold can be bought and sold for instant delivery. The Gold spot price is constantly changing, making it crucial to remain updated on any performance indicators such as market condition and current events because they greatly affect the buying and selling of Gold.

The Gold price is always quoted in troy ounces but can be converted into any quantity a person is wanting to buy or sell. Gold spot prices are universal, as most Gold markets use live Gold prices listed in U.S. dollars, so the price of Gold per ounce is the same across the globe.

Gold Spot Price FAQ

When someone refers to the price of Gold, they are usually referring to the spot price of Gold. Gold is considered a commodity and is typically valued by the weight of the pure metal content. Today’s spot price of Gold, like all days, is constantly changing according to many variables. However, today’s price of Gold could also refer to the total percent change of the spot price, as calculated relative to the price at the start of that trading day.

APMEX lists live Gold prices as well as historical data related to Gold spot price. All prices are updated in real-time. View the bid, ask and spot price at any time, on any device on our website or by utilizing our mobile app.

Gold is traded worldwide across many different exchanges – the most popular being Chicago, Hong Kong, London, New York and Zurich. The COMEX, part of the CME Group in Chicago, is the most important exchange for determining the price of Gold. The Gold spot price is computed using data from the futures contracts traded on the COMEX.

Gold prices are constantly changing during market hours. The spot price of Gold is determined by many domestic and foreign exchanges, which allows the spot prices to update from Sunday to Friday, 6pm EST to 5:15 EST.

The worth of Gold is determined by the current spot price. This price is determined by many factors such as market conditions, supply and demand and news of political and social events. The value, or worth, of a Gold product is calculated relative to the weight of its pure metal content and is measured in troy ounces. However, collectible or rare Gold products may carry a much higher premium over and above the value found in its raw metal weight.

Additionally, other factors such as merchandising, packaging or certified grading from a trusted third-party may influence the final worth of the Gold product you are purchasing.

Gold bullion refers to a Gold product that is valued by and sold mostly for its metal content and does not contain any numismatic or collectible value. Gold bullion often appears in the form of bars, rounds and Sovereign coins that carry a face value and are backed by a government. These products are most commonly categorized therefore as either .999 fine, .9999 fine Gold bullion and even .99999 fine Gold, meaning the product is either 99.9%, 99.99% or the highly desirable 99.999% pure Gold.

A troy ounce of Gold is equal to 31.10 grams. It is a unit of measure first used in the Middle Ages, originating in Troyes, France. Troy weight units are primarily used in the Precious Metals industry.

The ounces Americans know in everyday life are avoirdupois ounces while the Gold price is measured in troy ounces. Troy ounces are equal to 1.09711 avoirdupois ounces. This is also true of other Precious Metals, including Silver, Platinum and Palladium.

No matter where you are in the world, the Gold spot price is the same at any given moment. Gold is traded in U.S. dollars so the price per ounce of Gold is simply converted to the local currency to reflect one troy ounce of Gold price.

The ask price of Gold per ounce is the current minimum price for a dealer to sell in the market. Dealers will offer to sell Gold to you for the ask price.

The bid price of Gold per ounce is the current highest market offer to sell to a dealer. Consumers can expect to receive the bid price when selling Gold to a dealer.

The spread, or the bid-ask spread, is the difference between the ask price of Gold per troy ounce and the bid price of Gold and represents the dealer’s profit. Dealers will offer to sell Gold to you for the Ask price, and when you decide to sell Gold back, the dealer will pay the Bid price. For example, if a dealer purchased Gold for $1,820 per ounce and then sold that same Gold for $1,850 per ounce, the spread is $30.

The premium is the additional cost of a bullion item over the spot price of the Precious Metal contained in the item. The premium typically includes the costs of production and distribution.

First, decide what kind of Gold you are interested in buying. There are several types of Gold, ranging from scrap to bullion products. Second, determine the form in which you would like to buy. If you are buying Gold bullion, choose between Gold coins, bars and rounds.

Next, do your research and identify a reputable seller. For example, The United States Mint does not sell directly to the public but offers a list of Authorized Purchasers. APMEX has been on that shortlist since 2014 and is in such good company as Deutsche Bank, Scotia Bank and Fidelitrade, to name a few.

Finally, prepare for how you will securely protect and store your Gold. There are many factors and options for this. For a small fee, you can store it with a trusted third party such as Citadel – a service offered by APMEX – or you could choose to store your Gold in your own vault or lockbox at home.

Precious Metals IRAs, which are Self-Directed IRAs, make the most of Gold values. Much like regular IRAs, any profits on your Gold investment sales can be tax deferred as long as the proceeds are kept with your reinvestment custodian or transferred to another IRA account. When you decide to place the Precious Metal in the IRA, you have a way to further diversify your portfolio and hedge against economic downturn.

Some Gold investors would prefer not to house or ship their Precious Metals, so they invest in what is known as a Gold Share with an ETF. These shares are unallocated and work directly with a Gold Fund company who back up the Gold shares or stocks, which takes care of shipping and storage. With that, the Gold buyer does not have to worry about holding the tangible asset. However, Gold investors who prefer to physically hold their investments do not care for this option.

When shopping online with APMEX, you may be required to pay state and local sales tax on your purchase, but the tax rate you pay may vary depending on the address where we will be shipping your order. For more information on individual states, visit our State Tax Information page.

When ordering with APMEX, the Gold price when your order is submitted is the locked in price. APMEX will send you an order confirmation email detailing your purchase as well as confirming the locked in price.

There are some price differences depending on the payment method you use – with certain methods there are discounts. For a full list of our accepted payment methods and discounts offered, visit our Payment FAQ page.
