Gold Price Per Ounce

The above chart displays what the gold price per Troy ounce is right now in GBP. You can also see how much one ounce of UK gold cost in British Pounds over recent hours, days, weeks, months and years as well.

When traders quote a UK value for how much gold is worth at current prices, they usually say simply “gold price per ounce”, omitting the word “Troy”. That's even though a Troy ounce of gold is almost 10% heavier than a standard ounce.

The Troy weights system originated in the French city of Troyes. It was the basis for Britain's coinage in the Middle Ages. Based on the value of gold and silver, it was introduced by Henry II – who also ruled the western part of France – in the 12th Century.

A pure Troy ounce contains 31.1035 grams of 24-carat fine gold, almost 3 grams more than the cook's 'avoirdupois' measurement. One kilogram of fine gold contains approximately 32.15 Troy ounces.

The chart above enables you to view the British Pounds price of gold per ounce both now and over the last week. You can alter it to see the UK price for an ounce of gold in other time frames, from the last 10 minutes to the last 20 years.
