Live Spot Price and OWNx Base Prices

What is a "Spot Price"?

While metals markets are open across the world, gold and silver prices can change from one moment to the next. A spot price is a snapshot at a given point in time, of the current spot market price for gold or silver.

What is the OWNx Base Price?

Each business day when the metals markets are open and actively traded, we acquire large quantities of gold and silver to replenish metal that is allocated to each client making scheduled purchases. The price we receive becomes the OWNx base price. Over the years the OWNxBase Price has averaged within pennies +/- of the London Daily Fix.

Where can I obtain the most recent and/or historical OWNxBase Price?

Where does the Live Spot Price come from?

Live pricing is obtained from a third-party data feed. A data feed is a mechanism for users to receive updated data from multiple sources. It requires structured data and a centralized data management system to collect, normalize and integrate multiple data feeds. Major providers include Thomson Reuters, FactSet, Capital IQ and Bloomberg.


What price do I get when I sell my silver and gold?

If you schedule your sell to happen at the next daily base price, your gold or silver will be exchanged at the corresponding OWNx Base Price.

You can also sell your metal using the Live Buy & Sell feature. If you choose to sell this way, you will sell at the live spot price that is quoted to you.

Taking Delivery

What is the minimum number of ounces I can have delivered to my door?

Each delivery request must consist of at least 20 oz. of silver or 1/2 oz. of gold.

How do I take delivery of my gold or silver?

From your homepage: Click on “Take Delivery
Select which account and click “OK
Specify the quantity of each form you want shipped to you
Scroll to the bottom of the page click “Submit Order
After reviewing your delivery order click “Submit Delivery Order

What are the available options for taking delivery?

Subject to individual item availability, we keep a wide selection of different items from well-known mints and refiners. Visit our Delivery page for more information.

What are the costs for delivery?

Large bars (1,000-oz Silver and Kilo Gold) are delivered at no additional cost.

For other items that have an additional cost for us to obtain, there is an exchange cost. A vast majority of this cost is for the fabrication or premium for that specific item. For example, if the market price for silver is $15 per troy ounce and American Silver Eagles cost $3.00 per troy ounce for us to obtain, that is a 20% additional fee that we merely pass along to you. The remainder of the exchange cost includes shipping, handling and insurance.

The exchange cost is currently paid as an additional amount of metal added to your delivery transaction.

How soon do you ship once I submit my delivery request?

Orders typically usually ship out within 2-3 business days. To prevent gold and silver sitting in shipping warehouses over the weekend, we do not typically ship out on Fridays. If your package is being sent to a residential address delivery time ranges from 2-5 business days from the time of shipment. For packages going to a PO Box, delivery can take slightly longer and has less precise tracking.


How much does it cost to store my gold and silver?

There is a small storage fee of 0.05% per month. This fee is deducted from your account automatically on the first of each month in gold or silver. For example, if you have 20 ounces of silver in your account, it would amount to .01 troy ounces of silver.

The OWNx base price in effect on the day storage fees are deducted from accounts may vary from examples displayed on this page.

General Questions

What are the differences between OWNx accounts and pool accounts?

There are several differences but unallocated versus allocated is the central difference between a "pool account" and OWNx.


This is how OWNx operates. Allocated silver or gold is very simple. The metal is held on behalf of the account holder under a custody agreement. It is held at a depository titled in your name as your outright property. The metal is neither the property nor liability of the depository. With this type of agreement it is not subject to any third party creditors. You initiate every transaction via OWNx.com. At the time the transaction is completed, ownership transfers from OWNx to you. At that point First State Depository has agreed to act as physical custodian of your bullion, until at your instruction you decide to sell the silver back or initiate delivery exclusively via OWNx.com.


OWNx does not operate using pool accounts, though others do. In a pool or “unallocated” account the account holder does not have title to the silver or gold he/she has "purchased." Rather, in reality what the investor has "purchased" is an asset or claim to a certain amount of silver or gold. So essentially, in an unallocated account you are promised a defined amount of silver or gold. ("Your" metal is simply a liability on the balance sheet of the bank or company). There may or may not be physical metal held to back the purchase and if there were it could conceivably be leased out to generate interest for the bank or company with the expectation of it being returned if needed. What this means is, you could find yourself standing in line with all of the other unsecured creditors in the event of financial problems or insolvency of the purveyors of this type of account.

What would happen if silver or gold becomes unobtainable in any form?

In the highly unlikely instance that OWNx is unable to replenish “big bar” inventory at a given time, OWNx would inform all account holders and temporarily suspend all scheduled incoming funding until the situation was resolved. (Remember as well, YOU have complete control to change or remove your scheduled purchases via OWNx.com at any time) This would NOT affect your metal held in custody by the depository. Your purchased silver and/or Gold would be held safely in the depository until you submit instructions via OWNx.com. When silver or gold availability is restored, we would notify all clients allowing you to re-activate your schedules.

Can I add a beneficiary to my account?

No. This must be done through a will just like any other physical asset you own.
