Gold hits 50

The continuing war in Ukraine has seen all commodity prices increase and gold especially has seen investors and savers alike turn to the yellow metal as a safe haven. The price has continued to run uphill and today broke the magic £50/gram mark which it has only ever done once before - briefly in the summer of 2020. 

Silver continues to rise, although not quite so stridently, and has gained 12.5% since the invasion began 13 days ago and broke the £20/oz mark today.
