The daily gold price chart above shows the historical prices of Gold (or Silver) over various periods, from as little as 10 minutes ago to 20 years ago.

The current gold spot price (or that for silver, if you select that option) is shown in realtime just above the line that crosses the chart. If the line and spot price is blue, then the price of gold has dropped since the last reading. If it’s red, the price has increased.

You can also select which currency you want to see gold or silver valued against and you can export the values from the chart.

If you check the 20-year silver and gold price charts, you’ll see that gold and silver both peaked in 2011 and that prices dropped until the end of 2015. The prices of both precious metals are now rising, so this is the best time to buy.
