A Brief History of Silver
Somewhere between the 5th and 4th Millennium BCE, around 7000 years ago, the element silver was first separated from lead. Around this time, mining and production largely took place around the North-Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Around 100CE, Spain became a major producer. This was likely due to the conquest of Spain by the Roman Empire and the stability and technological advancement this brought.
For a time, silver was seen as more valuable than even gold in ancient Egypt. By 1200CE, silver mining and production in Europe increased. In 1492CE, the discovery of the New World dramatically increased the exploitation of resources. By 1800CE, more than 85% of the world production came from countries like:
The 20th-century saw countries like the US, Australia, and countries in both Central America and Europe become large producers. It was estimated that 190 million Troy ounces were produced globally annually by 1920. Today, silver is used in more industrial applications as well as jewellery. With high-grade silver available too, demand continues to grow. Global annual production sits at around 670 million Troy ounces and remains steady.

What are the Benefits of Buying Silver?
Silver doesn’t carry the same value by weight as gold does, but that doesn’t make it any less of a worthwhile investment. Silver bars and coins are more speculative, making them an excellent investment option. This is especially true if you buy low and sell high.
Silver is classed as a commodity, so silver prices usually move in the opposite direction from stocks and bonds. During economic downturns and cases of political turmoil, when stock and bond values plummet, silver prices will remain constant, even increase. This makes silver a great way to counterbalance an investment portfolio vis-à-vis paper securities.
Silver has intrinsic worth – silver bars and coins hold their value long-term and come out better when interest rates fall. This makes them a more reliable investment than paper-based currencies.
To summarise, the benefits of silver include:
- More Speculative
- Resistant to Economic Downturns and Political Instability
- Counterbalances Portfolios in Relation to Paper Securities
- Has Intrinsic Worth – Holds its Value Long-Term – More Reliable Than Paper-Based Currencies
