Silver production from 1500 to 1750

Spanish colonial America and Tokugawa Japan led the world in silver production from 1500 to 1750. In the early 1570’s, the Ming Chinese government required that all domestic taxes and trade fees be paid in silver.

How ‚Real de a ocho' (Peso) became the first global currency after Spanish Conquest and exploitation of the silver mines in the New World.

The rate at which global silver production increased over the past century is quite astonishing. When Columbus arrived in America (1492), the world was only producing 7 million oz of silver a year. Today, the world’s largest primary silver mine, Fresnillo’s Sauicto Mine, produced three times that amount in just one year (22 million oz, 2016). Yes, we have come along way in 500 years. The discovery of massive deposits of silver in New Spain and Peru from the mid-16th century set in motion a chain of events that reverberated across the globe. Large-scale silver production in Spanish America not only transformed local, regional, and colonial economies across large parts of the Americas. What was the source of Chinese demand for silver from ~1500-~1600 CE? I have recently begun reading Charles C. Mann's book 1493. In the book, he makes the point that Chinese demand for silver caused, in part, a global trade network to develop between Asia, Europe, the Americas, and Africa. Furthermore, the silver to gold production ratio increased even higher in the 17th century (1600-1700). World silver production jumped to 1,272 million oz versus 897 metric tons (29 million oz) of gold. This pushed the silver to gold production ratio to a staggering 44 to 1. The increase in ratio was due the huge ramp up of Mexican silver With silver production at 1,200 metric tons in 2019, Argentina ties with Bolivia for the crowded ninth-spot on this list. Last year saw its silver production increase by 17.6%. The discovery of large quantities of gold and silver in the New World following the voyage of Christopher Columbus had a major impact on the subsequent history of the world economy. These two precious metals together with copper were regarded as the standard and measure of value in all societies throughout history.

The rarity of silver production was seen as an opportunity for China to control the currency's value and support its own national currency. Silver was one of the only accepted trade items from Europeans and its value in China was astronomical compared to rest of the world. In fact, its value was twice that of Spain in the 16th and 17th centuries.
