  What should the gold/silver ratio be

In addition, changes in mine supply have some effect on the silver market, because unlike the situation in the gold market the annual supply of newly-mined silver is not trivial relative to the exis

Precious metal units of measure explained
The precious metals industry uses the troy ounce as its basic unit of measure, even in countries who have adopted the metric system. A troy ounce is heavier than the more common avoirdupois ounce.

As a result, when you see “ounce” and “oz” used in the context of precious metals, assume the reference is to troy ounces. When re
