Gold price FAQs
To better understand how the Gold price works and what products to buy, knowing a few facts can be useful.
What is the spot price of gold?
The spot price of gold is the current price gold can be bought and sold for on the market. It is usually calculated in Troy ounces but can also be given in grams or kilograms. The price of a gold product is the spot price plus the margin (also called “premium”), which is the part of the price covering our production, and operational costs.
What is a troy ounce of gold?
A Troy ounce of gold is the official unit of measurement in the professional gold market. One troy ounce represents 31.1 grams of gold. Unless stated otherwise, the gold price will always be indicated in Troy ounces.
What moves the gold price?
The gold price moves depending on a combination of supply, demand, and investor behavior. Its value tends to increase along with demand. Its supply, however, tends to remain rather constant, making it a famous hedge against inflation when the supply of paper money starts increasing.
The spot price fluctuates throughout the day, making it important to follow current events and market conditions, as they will affect your buying and selling price for precious metals.
How are gold coins prices set?
Gold coins are a very unique investment. They are sometimes considered legal tender and are produced and recognized by the issuing government. The coins are always labeled carefully with the correct year of issue, the gold purity, and the weight of the coin. Gold coins prices fluctuate daily, as they move separately from the stock market.
Gold coin prices can be affected by several different factors. Factors like rarity, shifts within the money market and the stock market, a recession, or the threat of a recession, elections, political movement, or even geopolitical issues. These are all factors that can influence the price of gold coins.
How are gold bars prices set?
Currently, there are many types of gold bars circulating the world's precious metal market - meaning there are endless possibilities to pick from. Buying Gold Bars is the most popular way of investing in the precious metal market. Their price is set based on their quality, craftsmanship, weight, and sometimes year of issue and rarity.
The price of a gold bar contains three main elements: the metal price, the premium, and the VAT. However gold is exempt of VAT in most European countries. The metal price is directly based on the spot price which is the most recent gold price on the market. Depending on its weight and quality, a gold bar will have a higher or a lower metal price.
Finally, the margin (also called “premium”), is the part of the price of your gold bar that will come back to GOLD AVENUE to pay for production and other costs related to selling the bar. The margin can vary for each product depending on its level of craftsmanship for example. This is why minted bars tend to have slightly higher premiums than cast bars, as it takes into account the bar’s artistic value.
