Silver price reaches record highs. Prices of raw silver have shot up to a record 18 year high. Alex Brogan - chief silverstall mines operator said "we cannot peg prices any more particularly as the demand for both gold and silver has escalated. Chinas' demand for example has increased by 200% in the past six months! - i think the big jewellery market prices will rise by at least 30% over the next 12 months". Luckily for silverstall customers we stockpiled enough silver supplies for the next 2 months so we should be able to absorb the increase until xmas without having to increase the price of our silver jewellery although if you compare our prices with competitors we are already too cheap.

shipment of silver on board old galleon

Researching old records revealed an old bill of lading dated 26th November 1482. A shipment of silver was bartered in exchange for some salt (subsequently sold to fishermen in Plymouth). The bill of lading is endorsed with what many thought was the US flag but which transpires to be the coat of arms of the customs officer - namely Richard 'Amerike.' What's bizarre is that it is 17 years before Vespucci sailed with Columbus which led to the 'new continent' being called America. So the name 'America' including its flag could have evolved years before Vespucci sailed to America.

work continues at updating this site however due to exceptional demands it may take longer than anticipated.
