How is gold and silver priced?

open

All precious metals prices are based on the spot price for that metal in Sterling. This rate is only available to large banks trading in huge London Good Delivery Bars and does not include any brokerage fees, transportation, storage or insurance. Smaller bars and coins are always sold at a premium to the London spot price to reflect the additional costs of producing and testing smaller items. The value of coins may also be increased through their scarcity, design, historical value, collector’s value, and general market demand. Our premiums are extremely competitive and reduce as you buy larger bars or higher quantities of coins.
