Those	
  attracted	
  to	
  the	
  precious	
  metals	
  markets	
  are	
  often	
  curious	
  about	
  the	
  various	
  
ratios	
  existing	
  between	
  gold	
  and	
  silver,	
  as	
  well	
  as	
  what	
  these	
  ratios	
  might	
  reveal	
  
about	
  the	
  relative	
  fair	
  values	
  of	
  these	
  key

analysis.	
  
	
  
     Above

           • Investment	
  grade:	
  The	
  ratio	
  of	
  investment	
  grade	
  gold	
  existing	
  in	
  bullion	
  
                 form	
  is	
  as	
  much	
  as	
  five	
  times	
  that	
  available	
  for	
  silver.	
  
     	
  
           • Everything	
  else:	
  All	
  the	
  gold	
  ever	
  mined	
  has	
  been	
  estimated	
  at	
  160,000-­‐	
  
                 170,000	
  tons	
  of	
  gold	
  or	
  roughly	
  5	
  billion	
  Troy	
  Ounces.	
  A	
  reasonable	
  
                 estimate	
  for	
  the	
  total	
  amount	
  of	
  silver	
  mined	
  is	
  56	
  billion	
  Troy	
  Ounces.	
  	
  
                 This	
  makes	
  the	
  “ever	
  mined”	
  ratio	
  roughly	
  11.2	
  to	
  1.
