Gold Silver Price Ratio

The gold silver ratio, simply put, is how many ounces of silver can be used to purchase an ounce of gold. For example, if the gold silver ratio is currently 70:1, one would be able to purchase 70 ounces of silver to an ounce of gold. It must be noted that, (obviously) the same unit of measurement must be used for both sides of the ratio, generally troy ounce (31.1035 grams) is used.
The live gold silver ratio is shown on this page but if there is ever a time you can only access our live prices page then the ratio is simply the live gold price divided by the live silver price. For example, the live gold price (troy ounces) is 705. The silver price (troy ounces) is 9.35, therefore 705/9.35 = 75.4 – 75.4 troy ounces of silver can be purchased with one troy ounce of gold. The figure can be shown as 75.4:1 or 75.4.

Relevance

Some sources state that the gold silver ratio is no longer relevant in today’s markets. We believe it is a worthwhile measure, but would stress that it is difficult if not impossible to state what the ratio “should” be. The higher the ratio would indicate that silver is “cheap”. If the ratio is lower, some investors may turn to invest in gold, possibly exchanging their silver in the process.

History

When the first coins were made over 2,500 years ago in ancient Greece, the ratio of gold to silver was generally between 10:1 and 13.5:1, depending on the relative proximity of gold or silver mines. In the 1930's and 1940's the ratio reached 90:1 or higher, and in 1991 it peaked at about 98:1, although we have seen one source which claims over 100:1 peak. Other sources state that the gold silver ratio is no longer relevant in today's markets. We believe it is a worthwhile measure, but would stress that it is difficult if not impossible to state what the ratio "should" be.

Gold Platinum Price Ratio

For those investors interested in the relative prices of gold and platinum, we provide this page which shows an up to date ratio of gold to platinum. We believe it is a worthwhile measure, but would stress that it is difficult if not impossible to state what the ratio "should" be.
Obviously because this is a ratio, there are no units of weight or currency needed or quoted.
