The most 5-star reviews of any New Zealand dealer.
Across precious metals, gold and silver are the most popular in terms of investment. Gold is key in times of crisis because it is viewed as the natural 'safe hedge' against financial risk. The metal performs well in times of global geopolitical uncertainty, economic turbulence and major disruptive global events. Recent years have seen a mix of these, from the Global Pandemic, the Ukraine war, Chinese aggression against Taiwan and an unpredictable US presidency. In times like these, both large institutions and private individuals increase their exposure to gold, which is seen as a stable commodity, is a tangible asset and has no counter party risk.
As a more affordable alternative to gold, silver is also very popular. While silver's nature is more speculative, the metal performs similarly in times of crisis.
What Mints & Refineries does MyGold® work with?
MyGold® work closely with the world’s leading mints and refineries in the precious metals industry. This ensures that every MyGold® investor is assured of the highest levels of quality, in terms of purity of metal, quality of workmanship and choice, across both bullion and collector products.

- Gold has a proven track record of serving as an inflation hedge.
- Gold is a highly effective method of portfolio diversification.
- Gold has a history of holding value over time despite global growth and periods of crisis.
- During periods of currency fluctuation gold performs well, such as when the US Dollar was weak between 1998 – 2008. This also occurred when money supply increases substantially, such as quantitative easing.
- Gold and silver are finite resources. This is particularly the case with gold where existing mine feeds are diminishing, whilst new mines are often inaccessible.
- The rising middle classes in countries like China and Southeast Asia are driving a new demand for gold, which is forcing up prices.
- Gold and silver are real and tangible.
- Metals can be passed down from one generation to the next.
Customers are responsible for assessing and evaluating any transaction considering their current financial situation, investment goals and unique requirements. The established advice from various experts has been to allocate approximately 10% of your net worth in precious metals. However, gold and silver ‘bulls’ hold positions of 50% or greater. We would advise all customers to have an investment strategy, plus a budget in mind to invest in precious metals, as this enables us to suggest products that fit within your objectives and longer-term needs. No order is too small or too large.
The manufacturing techniques, complexity, premiums, manufacturers, and transportation locations of various products vary. For instance, the machinery, expertise, time, and skill required to produce coins is significantly greater than that required to produce cast ingots (which are created by pouring molten gold into moulds, which are then chilled and stamped). Both bullion and proof coins have a higher production cost due to their finishes, which can result in higher premiums than cast or minted bars.
Yes – we have a special Bullion insurance policy for precious metals stored at home, underwritten at Lloyds of London. Click here for more information.

Documentation: Maintain records, including receipts and photos of your bullion, for insurance and verification purposes.

The gold spot price is the current price at a given moment used to determine the rate for a single troy ounce of gold. The spot price is dictated by market factors; speculators, world events, currency values or an array of other variables. The gold spot price serves as the basis for bullion dealers and gold traders to pinpoint the gold buying and selling price for a specific gold bar or coin. Such prices tend to be dynamic, changing every few seconds when the markets are open.
When the price of gold is quoted as ‘live’ on gold price websites, it is generally quoted per troy ounce in US Dollars. The MyGold® website displays prices in both U.S. and New Zealand dollars.
The gold and silver prices listed on our charts are ‘spot prices’ (quoted in US dollars and NZ dollars). Spot prices are used in relation to the pricing of futures contracts of securities, typically commodities and are not the prices applicable to physical gold.
Both gold and silver have to be mined and then refined, often separating out other metals in order to get 99.9% purity. Once refined, the metals are then made into bars and coins, distributed globally and then sold to individual investors. The prices quoted on the MyGold® website reflect these costs which are over and above the spot rate.
For more information visit our charts and prices page.
Gold and silver bullion are traded above international spot prices. Gold and silver must be mined, refined, made into bars and coins, marketed and sold to individual investors, the costs for which contribute to the premium between ‘spot’ and our selling prices. Some bullion products trade with an additional premium due to being internationally recognised or simply rare or desirable. MyGold® prices are not set at a specific percentage above spot for these reasons.
Occasionally MyGold® offers special deals on gold and silver bullion, therefore we recommend signing up to the MyGold® Newsletter to be notified immediately of any special offers.
You can view live gold and silver ‘spot’ prices on our charts and prices page in NZD / USD.
Price ranges to buy gold and silver products can be found on each respective page (in NZD). For an overview of all types of coin and bars we offer, please click here for gold bullion products and here for silver bullion products.
Due to the live nature of the market, gold and silver spot prices, as well as foreign exchange rates, fluctuate constantly. In order to secure your product and lock in prices, we must immediately establish prices to avoid issuing a new invoice.
In New Zealand there is no GST on the sale of pure gold bars/coins, and pure silver bars/coins. Bullion products that are not fine gold (99.9% / .999) incur GST. This includes American Eagles (22ct / 91.6%), South African Krugerrands (22ct) and British gold Sovereigns (22ct). Taxes ultimately depend on your country of residence. We recommend you consult a financial advisor for any tax related enquiries.
The value of gold and silver has increased over the past forty years. By example, despite the rises and falls in gold prices the metal rose in price from NZ$689 per ounce in March 2004 to NZ$ 2653 in November 2021. In March 2023 it reached NZ$3150. Past performance can be a good indication of future performance. No one can fully predict the future for gold prices or exchange rates, yet historically gold and silver bullion offers investors an excellent way to diversify and secure their wealth.
