Silver is a metallic chemical element with the chemical symbol Ag (Latin: argentum) and atomic number 47.

Silver is a metallic chemical element with the chemical symbol Ag (Latin: argentum) and atomic number 47. It is the second element of the copper group and is, therefore, a d-block element or as commonly referred to a transition element or . (compare IUPAC Red Book 2005, IR-3.5)
Unrecognized by the IUPAC is the still sometimes used name "coinage metals".
