I mean why would you ask such simple question? Answer is simple... People have unboxed so many unusualifiers the market has flooded with them

Long story short: Supply and Demand

Short story slightly longer: Hats in unique quality are very common and have a lot of sources: They can be crafted, dropped as random drop, bought in the mann co store, unboxed, etc. Taunts on the other hand have fewer sources, most importantly, you cant craft them. This means the only way you can get them initially is through the mann co store, unboxing, or maybe very rarely through the drop system.

 

For unusuals it's the other way around. As Crazy Mike mentioned, taunt unusualifiers are a lot more common than specific unusual hats. You can get them from every case introduced after Gun Mettle in 2015 and flood the market when a big event hits and people start unboxing like mad. Hats on the other hand only come from specific cases or in case of the old crates, have such a wide range of possibilities and combinations, it's harder to flood the market with them, even in big unboxing events.

Also, before the unusualfiers were made, unusual taunts were worth quite a bit. Even an absolute trash taunt/effect would still be worth dozens of keys. Take for example, the I See You taunt: Currently, the low tiers go for about 3-4 keys, but jump back before the unusualfiers, and they were going for closer to 35-40. And that's on the low end; Back in the taunt's heyday, something like a Conga or a Kazotsky Kick could easily sell for 300-400 keys.

Unique Hats can be crafted with 3 ref, taunts have to be bought from the Mann Co. Store or unboxed from cases worth at least a key.

My understanding is that taunts were removed from the drop system years ago, at least according to TF2 Tools stats.

You could also get them from dueling drop rewards and MvM rewards, but to my knowledge they are no longer available through those means either.
