Throughout history, silver bullion has served mankind as a primary monetary metal. It is durable, divisible, convenient, has utility value, and cannot be created out-of-thin-air like paper money.
However, unlike its fellow monetary metal—gold—silver is most commonly used today as an industrial commodity. Industrial demand for silver has grown consistently for the past three decades because of silver’s many unique properties, including its strength, malleability, and ductility…its unparalleled electrical and thermal conductivity…its sensitivity to and high reflectance of light…and its ability to endure extreme temperature ranges.
In addition to its industrial uses and qualities, silver is also used in numerous health care products because of the unique antibacterial characteristics it possesses. The “Silver Bullet” is used by hospitals to prevent bacterial infections in burn victims. Wound dressings and other wound care products incorporate a layer of fabric containing silver for prevention of secondary infections. In a world that is showing increasing concern about the spreading of disease and potential pandemics, silver is increasingly being tapped for its antimicrobial qualities.
Because of the values associated with silver, some of the world’s leading financial analysts believe that silver is one of the world’s most important commodities, with unparalleled investment opportunity for the future. Silver’s unique properties, which make it ideal and essential for global industry, create a situation where there is simply no substitute.
