Why is the Price of Gold and Silver Coins and Bars Higher than the Spot Price?

As you explore the joys of investing in precious metals, you will likely come across the term "spot price" and wonder why the prices of bars and coins, regardless of where you purchase them from, are higher.

To understand this, you first need to figure out what "spot price" means. Take a moment to refer to Islamic Monetary Council - Gold and Silver chart, which lists the prices of your favorite precious metals. "Spot price" refers to the value of an ounce of a specific precious metal at that exact moment in time. Please note that this chart changes frequently throughout the day, so it's essential to check it frequently.

So, why is the spot price lower than the bullion retail price?

Getting Precious Metals from “A” to “B” Takes Times and Money

If only life were as simple as buying precious metals at the spot price. Unfortunately, life is not always that straightforward, or affordable. Whether you buy your precious metal from Sunnah Currency or directly from a mint, such as the Royal Mint, there will be costs involved in acquiring that gold or silver coin or bar. These costs include transportation, marketing, labor, storage, and customer service expenses. Sunnah Currency also (only for Gold products) add a margin for affiliates and influencers who get commission and coupon codes for their audiences.

It's also important to note that some mints, such as the Royal Mint, have designs and messages on their products that do not align with our beliefs or values. For instance, can we be comfortable purchasing products from mints that support certain political or social movements, such as those related to the LGBT+ community. Therefore, it is crucial to consider these factors and compare prices before making any purchase. Some of these mint companies have shirk designs and idols too.
