Bullion

Palladium


Gold and silver are rare metallic chemical elements that fetch high and durable economic value. They're less reactive than most elements and therefore are made distinct by their luster as well as their high melting points. The very best known metals are silver and gold whose uses range widely from jewelry to coinage to art, as well as in yesteryear years, happen to be renowned for their industrial significance as well. Platinum, which was basically a waste product, is now becoming one of the most widely traded gold and silver and include ruthenium, rhodium, palladium, osmium, and iridium. The nature of gold and silver might be derived from the fact that they are very scarce and unique among other commodities that also account for their quality to be judged to become of effective value, thus, a measure of wealth. It is also important to take into account that not all gold and silver stay precious forever. This relies on their availability and new ways of refining or even creating such. Take aluminum, for example, once difficult to separate from ore, it was once the most difficult metal to obtain despite being one of the most common. Its status, which once put it above gold, dropped significantly when a simple aluminum extraction method was discovered in the late 1800's.


Fluctuations as to the rarity of metals depend on demand. Silver, for one is in a supply deficit, using more silver than it is mined, and is then projected to cost even more than gold soon.


Apart from rarity, other common characteristics of metals such as uses, easy storage, similar origin and historical value are considered as criteria for being distinguished as gold and silver. It is also hard to deny the industrial purposes of precious metals which will make them even more appealing. Finding new uses for them increases their market value in the trade and commodity market.
