Long used for Silver bullion and jewelry, Silver is a versatile Precious Metal that is also used in industries ranging from nuclear energy to water filtration. The same Silver in Walking Liberty Half Dollar rounds is also used in many electrical applications because Silver conducts electricity the best out of all Precious Metals. Though you may not buy Silver for its antimicrobial properties, many physicians do because Silver can be used to treat burn victims, heal bone infections and keep surgical equipment free from pathogens.

Why are 1/2 oz Silver rounds measured in troy ounces?
When purchasing 1/2 oz Silver rounds, you need to know the difference between a troy ounce and an ounce we are accustomed to. Fractional Silver rounds and other Precious Metals products are commonly measured using the troy ounce, while food and other items are measured using the more familiar avoirdupois ounce. Though the troy system most likely originated in France hundreds of years ago, the troy system used to measure Silver bullion dates back to the 1400s in England. When buying Silver, the main difference you need to be aware of between the two measurements is that troy ounces are heavier than avoirdupois ounces.
