What is the chemical symbol for silver?


Chemical symbol for silver The chemical symbol for silver is Ag, coming from the Latin word for silver – Argentum .

Interestingly, it is the same root word for the French word argent , which means both silver and money, telling us a lot about the historical affinity between wealth and precious metals.

Silver’s chemical structure makes it the most conductive of all metals known to man and is why it is used in so many different industries and technologies as well as investment bullion. The precious metal can be found in circuit boards, batteries, solar energy technologies and much more. This is reflected in the silver price, which can be much more volatile than gold due to its large variety of industrial applications.
