How to Calculate Gold Margin?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Gold Margin.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the gold sell price ($). 
    • The gold sell price ($) is given as: 1000.
  2. Next, determine the gold purchase price ($). 
    • The gold purchase price ($) is provided as: 800.
  3. Finally, calculate the Gold Margin using the equation above: 

GOM = (GSP – GPP) / GSP * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

GOM = (1000 – 800) / 1000 * 100 = 20 (%)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

gold sell price ($) = 600

gold purchase price ($) = 400
