From the beginning of humanity, until about 30 years ago, money in most places was always linked to precious metals. Gold and silver are highly sought after for coinage, jewelry and investments.
Over the course of history some really outrageous and crazy things have been done in order to discover these precious metals. Great Southern Coins, a rare coin and precious metals firm that specializes in gold and silver coins and bullion, recently created an Infographic about ‘Gold and Silver Fever’ throughout recorded history. The Infographic provides great information on both gold and silver and the role that these precious metals took in shaping history, as well as some interesting facts on both of these metals today.
Check out the Infographic in its entirety and feel free to share it!
