The price of gold

Real-time gold price chart in euros

By default, the gold price on VeraCash® is shown in grams of gold and denominated in euros (EUR). However, you can use the filters to view:

  • the price of an ounce of gold,
  • the price of gold in other currencies, US dollars (USD), British pounds (GBP) and Swiss francs (CHF),
  • the price history for up to 5 years,
  • the price of other materials, silver and diamonds.
  • The price chart displays the spot price in real time on the professional gold market, located on the "GoldSpot Price" tab. The "GoldPremium Price" is specific to VeraCash®: it consists of the spot price to which is added a variable premium explained below.

    The gold quotes shown on the VeraCash site and app represent the prices at which a member can buy and resell the gold held on their behalf in our treasury at that time. The quote is updated every 15 minutes (the price is frozen on weekends) and is always accessible.

    How is the spot price of gold calculated?

    If you want to buy gold, it is interesting to know how the gold market works. The price of gold is constantly changing and many factors influence this fluctuation. Supply and demand, current events or even market speculation all have an impact on how the price of gold is determined.

    The "spot" price is the cash price equivalent of gold at which professionals trade gold on stock exchanges. Gold and other precious metals (silver, palladium and platinum) are bought and sold 24 hours a day on the New York (COMEX + NYMEX + CBOT + CME), London (LBMA), Sydney, Hong Kong and Zurich stock exchanges. These stock exchanges influence and determine the spot price of gold.

    What is the current price of a gram of gold?

    VeraCash® displays the price of gold in grams on its charts by default, since the physical gold you buy is converted into digital tokens expressed in grams to 5 decimal places.

    What is the gold price in the United Kingdom?

    In the United Kingdom, the price of gold is determined on the basis of LBMA Gold Price, a price administered by the ICE Benchmark Administration Ltd., an independent third party provider that provides the price platform, methodology as well as the overall administration and governance for the LBMA Gold Price. The price is set in US dollars. Sterling and euro prices are available but these are indicative prices for settlement purposes only. Gold prices are set twice a day, at 10:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. This Gold Price is established on the basis of electronic auctions conducted on the ICE Trading Platform auctions, the final prices of which are then published as the LBMA Gold Price.
