About Silver

Silver is one of the world’s most indispensable elements. It far from just useful in jewelry or as an investment, but is almost ubiquitous in our modern world. Silver is incredibly strong, ductile and malleable. It is one of the best conductors of both heat and electricity, can withstand extreme changes in temperature, and is highly reflective and sensitive to light. With these unique properties, silver is used extensively in photography, science and industry.

At the highest classification, silver had three primary uses which account for over 95 percent of global silver demand - industrial applications, art (including jewelry) and investment. More than 62 percent of the world's silver demand can be accounted for by industrial applications, jewelry and other artistic decorations account for approximately 21 percent, while investment products, such as coins, ingots and medals, account for around 12.5 percent.

Mexico, closely followed by Peru and China, are by far the biggest silver producers in the world, accounting for almost 50 percent of global supply. Mexico alone accounts for almost 21 percent.
