When buying 1 oz of Gold, you will also pay a premium price, which accounts for fabrication, distribution and a minimal dealer fee, plus any numismatic or collector value. Gold coins that are highly desirable and rare have the highest Gold prices because of their numismatic value and collectability.

Whether a 1 gram Gold bar or a 10 oz Gold bar is purchased in the U.S. or across the globe, the spot price is always the same. That is because a 1 oz Gold bar is based on the spot price of 1 troy ounce of Gold in U.S. dollars. The Gold may come in 1 gram Gold bar increments or a full kilogram of Gold, but the price is still based on the troy ounce measurement. A troy ounce of Gold is not the same as everyday ounces we are accustomed to. One troy ounce of Gold equals 1.09711 avoirdupois ounces the ounces we are most familiar with. The price of Gold bullion bars and rounds may also be sold in the local currency but is always converted from the U.S. dollar price.
