If you're more of a chart person, here's a resource

If you're more of a chart person, here's a resource (among many others) to track this ratio:

It's currently flirting with the 60ish (clearly in favor of gold owners, still).

The video I shared makes a good point, IMO, that history seems to tell us that depressions (disguised or not) or war times give the advantage to gold, with a ratio much higher than 12:1 or 16:1 before the 19th century.

While in peace, true recovery and prosperity times, that seems to be the opposite, and the ratio going lower give the advantage back to silver owners.

Gold is the money of kings, silver is the money of gentlemen, barter is the money of peasants – but debt is the money of slaves.
