## Return on Gold Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Return on Gold.

ROG = (CVG – PPG) / PPG * 100

• Where ROG is the Return on Gold (%)
• CVG is the current value of gold ($/ounce) • PPG is the purchase price of gold ($/ounce)

## How to Calculate Return on Gold?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Return on Gold.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the current value of gold ($/ounce). • The current value of gold ($/ounce) is given as: 1,200.
2. Next, determine the purchase price of gold ($/ounce). • The purchase price of gold ($/ounce) is provided as: 1000.
3. Finally, calculate the Return on Gold using the equation above:

ROG = (CVG – PPG) / PPG * 100

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

ROG = (1200 – 1000) / 1000 * 100 = 20 (%)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

current value of gold ($/ounce) = 600 purchase price of gold ($/ounce) = 400
