The most common thing that Silver is associated with is wealth. Silver has long been used for monetary purposes. Just look at the coins that have been made from it by Americans: Quarters, Nickels and Dimes – not to mention all of the collectible coins also made from Silver. Another reason wealth is associated with Silver is because in previous centuries it was customary to display one’s wealth by holding fancy dinners where the family’s finest dishes, often silver, were used. This is still practiced today among the wealthy.
The metal Silver is a hardy mineral and has been proven to stand the test of time. Likewise, the color Silver has became a timeless color that is used to depict the same.
