Gold bullion prices move in accordance with the gold spot price, because gold bullion items are traded at premiums that are based on the active COMEX spot price. If you decide to buy or sell gold bullion, your price will be based upon the live spot price at that time.

Gold bullion bars are usually the most affordable way to purchase physical gold bullion, and bullion bars range from 2.5-4% over the gold bullion spot price. Gold bullion coins are another popular way to purchase gold bullion, and gold bullion coins vary from 4.5-14% over the active gold spot price.
