Does anyone know how much $5 million could buy back then ...
Obviously they are talking about Spanish dollars. I did some research and the Spanish dollar contained 387 grains of silver, which is .88457 ounces. Times 5 million = 4,422,850 ounces of silver, which in todays silver price would be $88,722,000.
