TOKYO -- The price of silver has softened as industrial demand fell in China due to the country's rigid pandemic restrictions, with benchmark contracts touching a two-year low in recent weeks.

In New York, benchmark futures for silver ended at $18.23 per troy ounce on July 14, the lowest level since July 2020, with the price dipping as low as $18.01 at one point that day.
