Silver Price & Calculation
Silver prices are very critical when it comes to valuation of silver. Silver prices in India are always high due its duty & taxes structure. Silver rates are International market driven mainly controlled by London Bullion market association (LBMA) & Newyork stock exchange (NYE).
Silver rates fluctuate 24X7 depending on Asain / Europe / Newyork markets & also local markets based on the demand & supply. In India we don't have a uniform rate system as it is a diversified market.
Online Gold rate - there are many websites online which display gold commodity prices, but none of them can be accurate as they are not involved in local trade. Market rates are the ones to be considered when selling your silver. The Market rates are a computation of World spot price + Duties & Taxes + Insurance + shipping + local demand & supply + dealer margins & a reference from MCX India contract rates.
At DGold we follow a very transparent rate system which is displayed on our home page www.dgold.in (*Buying prices may differ)
Calculation / Valuation
Valuation process differs from articles to bars & coins, so not all will be evaluated the same way. Silver articles will have a mixture of other alloy contents like zinc, lead, tin & other metals. These alloys are the key to manufacturing the article as it cannot be made in pure silver. Our Valuation process will determine the actual silver content in the articles. In the case of Bars & coins it is again imperative to determine the purity, if the silver is 999 purity then it means that there is no other alloys present in it.
