Silver also zoomed Rs 1,096 to Rs 47,957 per kilogram. In the previous trading, silver closed at Rs 46,861 per kilogram.

"Spot gold price for 24 Karat in Delhi was trading up by Rs 460 to Rs 38,860 on a weaker rupee. The spot rupee fell by 52 paise against the dollar on higher oil prices," said Tapan Patel, senior analyst (commodities), HDFC Securities.

Globally, gold was trading in the green at $1,504 an ounce in New York, while silver was also quoting with gains at $17.87 an ounce.

International gold prices rallied on safe-haven buying amid geopolitical tensions in the Middle East, he added.

"Gold prices traded higher on Monday with COMEX international spot gold prices gaining 1 percent to $1,504 on higher risk premium on Middle East tensions," Patel said.

The rupee tumbled 68 paise to 71.60 against the US currency in early trade on Monday, as a sharp jump in global crude oil prices dampened investor sentiments.

Crude oil prices witnessed a sharp spike after a weekend drone attack on Saudi Arabia cut into global energy supplies.
