Gold and Silver Compared
|The Perth Mint is the largest gold refinery in Australia, the world’s No. 2 gold producer after China. It is one of the largest gold and silver refineries in the world.
Gold and silver prices have surged this week on a weaker dollar and as appetite for risky assets such as equities waned due to geo-political concerns in the Middle East and Asia and deepening tensions between the U.S. and Russia.
Gold is 2.6% higher and silver is 3.1% in the shortened Easter week with markets closed for Good Friday tomorrow.
Geo-political risks that were dormant are becoming more active. This is leading to renewed risk aversion which should see further gains for gold.
