Coins/Currency Silver Gold Platinum/Palladium
First Ime in 30 Years:$30/ozt Silver (12/06/2010)


SILVER PRICE NEWS – The silver price reached the $30 level for the first time since 1980, as the March futures contract climbed as much as $0.835, or 2.9%, to $30.115 per ounce in mid-day trading.  With today’s rally, the price of silver extended its year-to-date gain to 78.7%, as the metal has outperformed virtually all asset classes in 2010.

The last time the silver price traded above $30 came as the Hunt Brothers tried to corner the market, sending the metal toward $50 before it quickly tumbled lower again.
