Gold Price Charts

BullionByPost is the UK’s best place to view and track the gold price via our fast loading charts. As the UK’s No.1 online bullion dealer* we accurately provide you with all the real-time fluctuations and movements in the gold price updated every 5 seconds.

Whether you’re looking to follow the live price, view the gold price today, this week, month, year, or historically - we’ve got it covered. Using the chart options above and on the left hand side, there are hundreds of charts to view with a choice of variables to help you find exactly what you want. You can tailor your chart via Time Frame, Weight and Currency.

As well as the constantly updated gold spot price displayed in our charts, a benchmark is also set twice a day, known as the LBMA Gold Price, or the ‘Gold Fix’. This benchmark is set at 11am and 3pm GMT after a series of auctions between some of the major players in the gold industry. The LBMA Gold Price is used for the trade of gold and gold derivative assets by the largest traders in the gold industry including miners, refiners, and central banks. However, the majority of gold traded around the world will use the gold spot price.

Time Frame

There are ten standard time frames above to view the gold price. These options allow you to view the prices within any time period you choose from 1970 up until the live price. If you would like to view a specific time frame, simply select any one of the 1 Year, 3 Year, 5 Year and All Time options to build your own chart the way you want to see it.

This is an extremely useful tool and can be a very important aid in choosing the right time to invest in gold. While we can never be sure of what will happen in the future, looking back at the historical fluctuations of the gold price can give us a good idea of what the precious metal might do next.

Gold Weight

You can view the price via our three weight options above. These options allow you to view in Grams (g), Kilograms (kg) and Troy Ounces (T/Oz) which is the standard option.

Investors should take note that the troy ounce, a unit often used to measure precious metals, is not the same as the common avoirdupois or "kitchen" ounce. The troy ounce is around 3 grams heavier, at 31.105g.

Gold is an expensive commodity and not everybody is able to buy it by the kilo. Our different weight options allow you to view the gold price according to different quantities, allowing you to relate its fluctuations to your respective budget.

Our Investment Calculator is an excellent tool that will do the hard work for you, giving you a range of packages according to your budget, empowering you to make the investment decision that best suits you.


The gold price charts can be viewed in different currencies including British Pound Sterling (GBP), Euros (EUR) and US Dollars (USD).

Comparing the movement of the gold price in different currencies allows us to gain a better perspective of the fluctuations of the value of gold based on demand for the precious metal, rather than just the changing value of a certain currency.

The changing values of currencies is one of the major reasons investors put their faith in gold. Although we have long abandoned the Gold Standard, many central banks and private investors alike aim to hold a portion of their wealth in gold bullion, due to the universal belief in the value of gold. While fiat currencies are prone to inflation and many have come and gone throughout history, gold bullion has always been considered a highly precious commodity.
