Silver, one of the earliest elements discovered, dates back to 4000 BC - some experts believe it may date back to 5000 BC. In fact, at one time it was valued higher than gold (3000 BC).
Silver is easy to work with. It’s pliable - easily pressed and stretched into almost any shape.
Silver is everywhere, used artistically, industrially and for currency. Many of us have silver coins, jewelry, artistic pieces, dining utensils, etc. It is estimated that 20 billion ounces of silver are presently being used.
Many languages use the word “silver” and “money” as synonyms. In fact, silver has been used monetarily as coinage and in other forms since approximately 700 BC. In the US, it was used in circulation through 1970, but then it became too expensive. However, the US Mint still strikes various non-circulating legal tender silver coins.
