A'cfe.— In the above valuations, standard gold is estimated at 77s. lOJd., and silver at 6s. 6dper ounce,
an overvaluation at present, but in countries with a silver standard, such as India, the relative sterling value
of money changes with the current price of silver, which, in November, 1892, was 3g. 3d. per oz., the nipe«
being at that date about Is. 3d. of sterling value. No account is here taken of the value of paper notes
having a forced currency and only convertible from the nominal value to gold at a greater or less dIscouHt.
