A chart of historical silver prices is a list of what silver was worth each year up to the present date, according to Silver Price History. The site has recorded the data and processed it into charts so any user can see the price of silver for a particular year.
For example, the historical silver price charts for the past 20 years show that silver's worth peaked between 1980 and 1981 and between 2010 and 2012, when it was worth more than $48 an ounce. Silver Price History charts show that, during the last 30 years, the price of silver has been as low as just under $4 an ounce. The value of silver depends on the market at the time and place of the sale.
