What is Silver?
Silver is more abundant than gold. The advantage of silver over gold is its affordablility. Its price rise over the last two years has been breath-taking, so it will not stay as affordable for long.
Silver has a high demand from industry and this underpins the price. It is used in everything from photography, mobile phones & even in airline seats because of its anti-bacterial qualities. It is commonly accepted that as demand for gold exceeds supply, silver will come into its own as a precious, investment metal.
