Visualizing Silver Bullion

Here’s another neat info-graphic from the folks at Demon-ocracy, this one depicting a variety of mostly silver (with some gold) bars, balls, and blocks of bars from which the image below was culled.

As detailed here, silver is a very dense metal, but gold is even denser (though not as dense as platinum) which explains why the gold cube above is slightly smaller than the silver cube. Interestingly, while the value of the gold cube above is about $52 million $51,000, the silver cube is worth less than $1 million $1,000.

    I get $51,200 for the kilo of gold (32 troy ozs) and $960 for the silver. I’m real rich if your right.

      I stand corrected - I was thinking of the 1 tonne cubes at the bottom of the larger graphic when I did the calculation.

        Hi Tim

        It might just be a matter of time before those values become real if Ben keeps printing.

        I was rich for a moment! And it felt good.

        Take care
