On Monday, the price of gold in Pakistan reached an all-time high of Rs169,650 a tola as investors continued to seek refuge in the safe-haven metal due to growing worries that the country’s economic situation will become worse.

According to Geo, the rates of gold increased by Rs2,350 per tola and Rs2,016 per 10 grams, respectively, according to statistics supplied by the All Pakistan Sarafa Gems and Jewellers Association (APSGJA). These prices eventually reached an all-time high of Rs169,650 and Rs145,448.

Gold has reached many heights recently and concluded the week at Rs167,300 per tola after rising by Rs4,000, or 2.49 per cent, during the week that ended December 10.



In the meantime, silver prices rose over the key Rs1,900 per tola mark. Price increases of Rs80 per tola and Rs68.58 per 10 grams brought the price to an all-time high of Rs1,970 and Rs1,688.95.

Investors’ attention has switched to gold as a result of the dollar scarcity since the price of yellow metal is also increasing on the global market.
