LBMA Precious Metal Prices
Gold, silver, platinum and palladium price auctions take place daily in London and we publish prices with a delay to midnight London time on the day they are set. Real-time LBMA Precious Metals Prices are available from market data redistributors or the administrators, IBA (gold and silver prices) and LME (platinum and palladium prices).
IBA independently administers the price and provides the auction platform on which the LBMA Gold Price is calculated, while LBMA own the intellectual property rights. The platform is electronic, tradeable, auditable and in line with the IOSCO Principles for Financial Benchmarks. Any party using the LBMA Gold Price for valuation and pricing activities requires a usage licence with IBA.
There are sixteen direct participants who have been on-boarded to contribute to the LBMA Gold Price.
