If you’re interested in precious metals you might wonder if silver has ever been more valuable than gold ? The fact is that for a small instance it actually was. Here is a small passage from The commoner. (Lincoln, Neb.) December 01, 1919.
“Are the New York financiers living up to their claims of honesty that they made
so vociferously in 1896, or are they paying their debts in a cheap gold dollar?’.’ asked Mr. Bryan the other day when the bullion value of a silver dollar had soared beyond the bullion value of
a gold dollar.”
The commoner. (Lincoln, Neb.) December 01, 1919
With the current prices in gold and silver, if you would own 1 ounce of silver and the ratio changed to 1:1, you would have gotten a 8550 % increase. Not too shabby if you ask me.
