Individual Major Currencies
First, we have existing pages tracing all-time high gold bullion prices in three major currencies, as follow. It is worth at least a glance at each of these before reading the rest of this page.

  • All-Time Dollar Highs
    Latest - 2nd August 2011 $1637.75 (p.m.)

  • Highest Ever Gold Price in Pounds Sterling
    Latest - 2nd August 2011 £1005.800 (a.m.).
    Gold fixes over £1,000 per ounce for the first time ever!

  • Highest Ever Gold Price in Euros
    Latest - 2nd August 2011 €1147.370 (a.m.)

    Why Differentials?
    Obviously, the reason why most peaks do not coincide is because of fluctuations in each individual currency relative to the other three. Occasionally a triple top is achieved, but often gold only peaks in one or two currencies. Most of the international media ignore all but the dollar price of gold. In our opinion this is an oversight. In other countries such as India, gold prices in their local currencies are given at least equal weight with the dollar gold price.

    Next Bubble?
    The gold price increase between 1967, the last time was freely exchangeable at $35 per ounce, and the $850 price peak in January 1980, was a factor of 24.29 times. We regard this as having been a "bubble", and argued back in 2001 that it should "only" have peaked at between $350 (10x) and $450 (13x).
    If we were to apply the same increase from the 1999 bottom, $256.20, to an imaginary next bubble, the price would be $8967! If it "only" went up by a factor of 10, we would still see a price of $2,560. These figures should only be treated as a flight of fantasy, but then again, when gold had risen from $35 to $42, we dismissed talk about $100 per ounce gold as idiotic.

    Bull Market?
    Does the drop after this price peak mean an end to the gold bull market, we believe not, more of a correction.

    Highest Historical Silver Bullion Price & Lowest Recent Silver Price
    The all-time high price for silver was hit on 18th January 1980 at $49.45 (21.65) per troy ounce fuelled by Nelson Bunker Hunt's cornering of the market.
    Silver then hit a post Bunker Hunt low of $3.54750 or £1.83250 per ounce on 25th February 1991.
    In late 2010, silver has broken through a 30 year high of $30 per ounce.
