Is GBP backed by gold?

GBP is not backed by gold or any other metals; however, from the early 19th century until 1931, the UK used to operate what was referred to as the 'gold standard', in which the price of gold was fixed to the currency.


What's the relationship between GBP and the gold price?

When GBP gets weaker against USD, the purchasing power of UK investors falls. If USD strengthens against other currencies generally, this means gold becomes more expensive for investors around the world. This could lead to a fall in gold investment and reduce the gold price in GBP and other currencies.

On the contrary, when USD becomes weaker (depreciates), this usually boosts the demand for gold in other parts of the world. That’s because the price of gold in GBP and other currencies becomes more affordable, which increases the purchasing power of investors in the UK, the rest of Europe, Asia, etc, which can raise its price.


What are the current trends in gold prices in GBP?

The gold price in GBP has risen significantly over the last 20 years, steadily increasing from the mid 2000's to the early 2010's before dipping then rising again since 2018 (falling temporarily from 2020 to 2021).


What will the price of gold in GBP be in the future?

No one - even the most intrepid investors - can accurately predict the future price movements of gold in GBP or any other currency. But it’s worth familiarising yourself with some common patterns in GBP gold prices that have appeared throughout history.

Firstly, the gold price in GBP, like any asset, will go down when there is less demand for it. One of the key drivers of higher gold demand is economic uncertainty.

  • For example, when UK inflation rises quickly some investors will convert their cash and/or stocks and shares into gold to preserve their wealth.
  • But when the economy is performing well, investors may feel more confident about investing in stocks and shares, reducing the demand for and the price of gold.

How do UK-specific economic indicators impact the gold price in GBP?

  • Because gold is usually denominated in US dollars, its price is heavily influenced by US and global economic trends.
  • However, the UK is still an important centre for global banking and finance with a large London bullion market.
  • This means the UK economy is highly integrated into the global economy.

As a result, events in the UK can have repercussions on the rest of the world, including gold prices.

Gold prices in GBP are strongly influenced by the GBP-USD exchange rate.

  • If GBP weakens against USD, gold will generally be more expensive for UK investors. For example, if £1 is worth $1.20, a UK investor can buy $1,200 worth of gold for £1,000*.
  • If GBP strengthens against USD, the gold price in GBP will generally be cheaper. For example, if £1 is worth $1.40, a UK investor can buy $1,400 worth of gold for £1,000*.

(*for the purpose of these examples, we’re not taking fees or taxes into account)

The Impact of the UK's GDP on the Gold Market

When the UK’s GDP grows:

This means the economy is growing. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean the price of gold in GBP will fall. Even when the economy is performing well, investors may still prefer to invest in gold as a safety net against any future uncertainty.

When the UK’s GDP falls:

This indicates a weaker economy and the potential for a recession (if there are two consecutive quarters of economic contraction). As you might expect, this may prompt more investors to move to gold to protect their wealth, raising the gold price in GBP.

  • For example, in early 2024, when economic data revealed the UK had entered into a technical recession, demand for gold rose by 22%.
  • Interestingly, around the same time this news was announced, GBP strengthened after the US revealed weak retail sales, and the price of gold in GBP rose.

But remember: because the price of gold is usually denominated in USD, it is mainly influenced by events in the US and the global economy.

The impact of the UK’s inflation rate on the gold price in GBP

When inflation rises, the cost of living increases, and if wages rise below inflation, people will have less disposable income, as their purchasing power in GBP goes down.

  • This is when investing in gold can become more appealing, as it has a strong track record of maintaining its value over time and outperforming inflation.
  • The growth in demand for gold in the UK and across the world pushes up the price.
  • If the USD weakens, the gold price in GBP becomes more affordable (remember that gold is mainly denominated in USD).

The LMBA revealed that the World Gold Council recorded a 7% net increase in overall gold demand from Q2* 2022 to Q2* 2023, when inflation rose in the UK and many other countries.

*Q2 = second quarter of the year (April - June)

Why is gold a good diversification tool?

If you can excuse the pun, one of the 'golden' rules of investing is to never put all your eggs in one basket. For example, it's generally unwise to invest all your money in one industry, market, asset class (i.e. all cash, all stocks) or even one asset (i.e. gold).

Here’s why:

  • If you don’t diversify, your investments will be much more vulnerable to any volatility or events that reduce their value.
  • For example, if your investment strategies are dependent on the gold price in GBP increasing every year, this would be unsustainable, as such a scenario is very unlikely (commodities are subject to significant short-term price movements).
  • Furthermore, without diversification, you are unlikely to benefit from any favourable price movements that occur in multiple asset classes, regions or sectors of the economy.

Diversification is about spreading your risk across different industries, assets, regions, and so on.

  • Gold buying is a great way to do this, as it tends to increase in value when the economy is doing badly or when there is a lot of uncertainty.
  • The value of stocks and shares often fall in this type of scenario, which is why it might be worth considering allocating a portion of your investments to gold.

How to invest in gold

Investing in gold is accessible to a wide range of investors, not just experts or those with substantial wealth. While gold is a valuable commodity, it's possible to start with smaller investments and expand your portfolio over time. For instance, one could begin by acquiring a collection of 1 gram gold bars, which might cost under £100. However, it's important to stay informed about the current gold price in GBP before making a purchase.

There are primarily two approaches to investing in gold. The first involves physical gold, such as bars and coins. The second option is paper gold, which includes financial instruments like futures contracts and ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds), although it is often reserved for more experienced investors.

Ultimately, purchasing physical gold is one way to hold the asset directly.

Frequently asked questions

Read the most frequently asked questions from savers and investors on GOLD AVENUE and on how to buy gold, silver, and precious metals.

How much is 1 gram of gold worth?

The globally relevant gold price for fine gold is set internationally by the LBMA London (Bullion Market Association). This determination takes place twice daily at 10:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. as part of an auction. It is important to know that the price of gold is quoted in US dollars per troy ounce. To determine the price of gold in GBP for 1 gram, you have to take into account the current dollar-pound exchange rate and the unit of weight (1 gram is approximately 0.0321507 troy ounces). With GOLD AVENUE this conversion takes place automatically.

How much does 1 gram of gold cost?

The prices for 1 gram of gold can vary depending on the provider. While the metal value of fine gold is determined daily in an independent auction, suppliers usually sell gold at a percentage premium to the metal value. At GOLD AVENUE we offer a comprehensive selection of high quality gold products .


How do you calculate the value of 1 gram of gold in pounds?

The international metal value of gold is expressed in US dollars per troy ounce, which means that the exchange rate and various weight units must be taken into account when converting. For example, the current price of gold is $2,123.20, and 1 dollar is approximately 0.79 pounds sterling (as of March 5, 2024). Since 1 gram of gold is equal to 0.0321507 troy ounces, the metal value of 1 gram of gold is approximately £53.92 (2,123.20 x 0.79 x 0.0321507).


What affects the value of gold?

Gold values ​​are subject to numerous influencing factors such as market supply and demand, interest rates, geopolitical uncertainties, inflation expectations and the strength of the US dollar. Due to possible interactions between these factors, it is advisable even for experienced investors to follow the current news situation closely.


When is the best time to buy gold?

The decision to purchase gold depends largely on the individual needs of each investor, which is why there is no universal “one” time. Reasons why many investors purchase gold include hedging against geopolitical uncertainties, inflation, and investment portfolio diversification.
