LONDON (Reuters) - Gold hit record highs in euro and sterling terms on Wednesday after a wave of central bank and fund buying on the back of fears over the dollar outlook boosted interest in the precious metal as an investment vehicle.

Euro-priced gold hit a high of 805.25 euros an ounce, while bullion priced in sterling reached a peak of 732.38 pounds an ounce, according to Reuters data.

Spot gold earlier touched a record high of $1,215.45 an ounce, against $1,196.00 late in New York on Tuesday.
