Silver also declined by Rs 200 to Rs 37,100 per kg on reduced offtake by industrial units and coin makers.
Traders said a weak global trend where gold retreated from three-month high as signs of a buoyant US economy revived expectations that the Federal Reserve may raise interest rates, mainly put pressure on precious metals prices.
Globally, gold declined 0.5 percent to USD 1,171.38 an ounce and silver lost 0.9 per cent to USD 15.90 an ounce in Singapore.
In the national capital, gold of 99.9 percent and 99.5 percent purity declined by Rs 100 each to Rs 27,150 and Rs 27,000 per 10 grams, respectively. It had gained Rs 100 on Saturday's trade.
Sovereign, however, held steady at Rs 22,400 per piece of eight grams.
Following gold, silver ready traded lower by Rs 200 to Rs 37,100 per kg and weekly-based delivery by Rs 415 to Rs 36,980 per kg.
