The chart above tracks the US Dollar price for an ounce of silver over the course of the past forty years. The very beginning of the chart shows the end results of the infamous 'Silver Thursday' in which the Hunt brothers attempted to corner the silver market. The following years saw a bear market for silver and gold, before the financial crisis drove prices up.
