Records show that silver has been extracted and separated from lead as early as 3000 BC. This was in Anatolia, modern day Turkey and the Aegean Sea islands of Greece.
Rarely do mines extract only silver from the earth. Often silver is found in deposits of gold, copper, lead, and lead-zinc.
The largest silver productions are found in Mexico, Peru, China, Canada, Poland, Russia, Chile, Argentina, United States, Bolivia, and Australia.
“To 250 million persons in 51 countries the word for money is the same as the word for silver and silver literally means money.”
- Jerome F. Smith
In Spanish the word for both money and silver is "plata". As many of the silver mining countries are Spanish, and silver has been the worlds sound money for 3000 years, this makes perfect sense.
In the periodic table of the elements, silver is Ag. This stems from the Latin word for silver, "argentum". "Arg" meaning shiny. Hence, the name for silver rich Argentina.
