Earlier this year we started tracking the silver to gold sales ratio as measured by the sales of physical gold vs. sales of silver bullion at the U.S. Mint. We track the sales of one ounce American Gold Eagles vs. one ounce American Silver Eagles. We now provide this data from 2008 through October 2013 and compare it to the gold/silver ratio that measures how many ounces of silver it takes to purchase one ounce of gold.
