The Royal Mint’s live precious metal price charts offer you a chance to view the UK gold, silver and platinum price in pounds, euros and dollars. One of the most important factors when investing in bullion is the price, and by using the information displayed on each chart, you are able to calculate the live price of gold, silver or platinum, but also look at historical prices to gain a better understanding of how each metal price varies over time. You can also use the live precious metal price to calculate the value of your current investment portfolio or the value of any bullion products you are interested in investing in.

Put simply, the gold fix is a pricing mechanism which is in action throughout the day. It arrives at a value based on the buying and selling movement within the marketplace on a particular day. The London Bullion Market is the international home of gold pricing. Twice a day - at 10:30 and 15:00 GMT - prices are officially fixed.
