Silver's Two Purposes
in the Monetary Markets




Silver's primary role in the monetary market is as a store of value and its other role is as an investment asset.

As a monetary metal, silver shares the same asset principles that gold possesses.

Gold and Silver are 'de-centralized' forms of money, they have no liabilities and they will never be worth zero.

This is the greatest monetary reason individuals purchase precious metals because they protect the purchasing power of money.





Silver's other monetary role is as an investment asset. 

All investor's invest in an asset to receive the greatest return and it is for this reason alone that silver bullion is a greater investment asset than gold, platinum or palladium bullion.

Silver possesses this power of an asset because it is valued so much less than the other precious metals.

It is this investment property that allures many investors who are willing to brave the risk to receive the reward.

The rest of this page will help you learn more about how silver serves as an investment asset. 

In addition, this link to this guide's Gold Market page will help you understand how gold and silver serves, its primary role, as monetary insurance.

Understanding the
Gold to Silver Ratio




Silver is known as the "Poor Man's Gold", but for many of those who invest in physical silver bullion, they consider Silver to be the "Smart Investors Gold." 

The reasons behind silver's 'Poor Man's' label is this simple truth;  Silver is priced less than gold and other precious metals.

This fact doesn't devalue silver's relationship to other precious metals, it simply states the obvious, that silver is more affordable. 

For those who want to invest in silver to receive the greatest return, want to watch the Gold to Silver Ratio.

When the Gold to Silver ratio is above 60, silver has the greatest possibility of multiplying in price.

A reading of '60' in the Gold to Silver ratio means that it takes 60 ounces of Silver to be equal in price to 1 ounce of Gold.

In monetary comparison, from 1100 to 1700 A.D., the Gold to Silver Ratio was as low as 12 to 1.

The current mining ratio of the Gold to Silver ratio - measures to be about 8.3 to 1. (8.3 oz. of silver mined to 1 oz. of gold mined)

If the 12 to 1 ratio were true today, the price of silver would be around $100.00 an ounce, or if silver traded near the mined gold to mined silver ratio, silver's price would be around $150.00 a troy ounce.

gold to silver ratiosHistoric & Present - Gold to Silver Ratios

A few other reasons behind silver's capacity to multiply have to do with the size of the physical silver market, it is extremely small in comparison to other investments. 

In addition, in physical terms, each year, about one billion ounces of silver are mined and traded. 

That makes the physical silver market equal in size to just One Large-Cap Stock. (Over $10 Billion in market capitalization) 

On the other hand, silver's paper market is much larger, in 2014, Bloomberg valued the paper market of Silver around $5 trillion (see article here). 

Furthermore, Silver's paper to physical silver ratio sits around 250 to 1, meaning that for every ounce of physical silver, there are 250 ounces of paper silver. (paper silver = silver futures contracts)

"If the price of silver were based directly on the real physical silver market, silver’s price should be at $5,000 an ounce."  - Gold Broker

Silver's Volatile Market

The chart below offers you a glimpse of silver's volatile market, in relation to the gold market.

The gold and silver markets react to different variables, Gold acts more as a currency than a commodity, in addition, gold is a safe haven currency, meaning it will never be worth nothing.

This is also true for silver, however, silver has more industrial uses and trades more as an industrial commodity, than it does a safe haven currency, in the markets.

Violent fluctuations in some markets are unusual, but in the Silver Market, it is the norm.  

If you choose to purchase silver as an investment vehicle, the volatility in the Silver Market should be known and expected. 

Patience is required if you choose to invest in silver bullion because the  violent swings in price can cause anxiety.

Investors who want to buy silver, should follow the silver market and understand what causes these fluctuations in price.
