He lived and worked in many different countries, as that is the nature of the construction business. The demand for silver coins and bars has more than quadrupled since the early s, and the coin sales of Canadian Maple Leafs and American Eagles have been soaring for years. It is also interesting to note, especially at a time of such market vulnerability, that the ratio of silver to gold ounces bought in the market increases. This ratio peaked recently during the Global Financial Crisis in , and in the last 12 months it has jumped up to comparable levels.
Jewelry is also a crucial market for silver, and the category is considered by some to serve as an investment and store of wealth as well. Lower prices for silver in recent years have helped jewelry rebound in Asia and the United States in particular. Globally, silver jewelry fabrication experienced its second year of consecutive growth, increasing 1.

Gold mining is a global business, with hundreds of mining companies digging for the precious metal in dozens of countries. The 10 largest gold mines are located across nine different countries in North America, Oceania, Africa, and Asia. Share of global gold production is based on 3, tonnes Only two other mines—Grasberg and Olimpiada—produced more than 1 million ounces of gold in Grasberg is not only the third-largest gold mine but also one of the largest copper mines in the world.
Olimpiada, owned by Russian gold mining giant Polyus, holds around 26 million ounces of gold reserves. Polyus was also recently crowned the biggest miner in terms of gold reserves globally, holding over million ounces of proven and probable gold between all deposits. This graphic lists all minerals that are deemed critical to both the economic and national security of the United States.
The U. The American green economy will rely on renewable sources of energy like wind and solar, along with the electrification of transportation. However, local production of the raw materials necessary to produce these technologies, including solar panels, wind turbines, and electric vehicles, is lacking.
Understandably, this has raised concerns in Washington. In this graphic, based on data from the U. Geological Survey , we list all of the minerals that the government has deemed critical to both the economic and national security of the United States. This can be due to geological scarcity, geopolitical issues, trade policy, or other factors. In , the U. Department of the Interior released a list of 35 critical minerals. The new list, released in February , contains 15 more commodities.
The challenge for the U. For instance, in there was only one operating nickel mine in the country, the Eagle mine in Michigan. The facility ships its concentrates abroad for refining and is scheduled to close in Likewise, the country only hosted one lithium mine, the Silver Peak Mine in Nevada. Perhaps unsurprisingly, China is the single largest supply source of mineral commodities for the United States.
Cesium, a critical metal used in a wide range of manufacturing, is one example. There are only three pegmatite mines in the world that can produce cesium, and all were controlled by Chinese companies in They are essential for a variety of products like EVs, advanced ceramics, computers, smartphones, wind turbines, monitors, and fiber optics.
After China, the next largest source of mineral commodities to the United States has been Canada, which provided the United States with 16 different elements in According to the International Energy Association, the rise of low-carbon power generation is projected to triple mineral demand from this sector by The shift to a sustainable economy is important, and consequently, securing the critical minerals necessary for it is just as vital.
But the rise in silver demand from the solar PV sector could receive a boost over the coming years that could support the silver value in the future.
