Common uses today - Electronics, photographic and imaging equipment, coinage, jewelry, superconductors,
and water purification processes. Silver is also the most plentiful and least expensive of the "precious metals".
From Wikipedia -
"A soft, white, lustrous transition metal, it has the highest electrical conductivity of
any element and the highest thermal conductivity of any metal.
The metal occurs naturally in its pure, free form (native silver), as an alloy with gold
and other metals, and in minerals such as argentite and chlorargyrite.
Most silver is produced as a by-product of copper, gold, lead, and zinc refining."
