Internationally, the price of gold is currently trading at $2178.8 per ounce, while silver is priced at $24.31 per ounce on Sunday. This surge in precious metal prices is attributed to various global economic factors and geopolitical uncertainties, driving investors towards traditional safe-haven assets like gold and silver.

The Federation of Nepal Gold and Silver Dealers’ Associations is closely monitoring the market dynamics as the prices continue to set new records, keeping stakeholders informed about the ongoing trends in the precious metals market.
