Precious metals are rare and naturally occurring metallic element commodities that are of high economic value. Historically utilized as currency, these commodities are now held mainly for investment and industrial purposes. Commodities such as gold and silver are generally regarded by the finance industry as safe-haven investment instruments, serving as solid hedges against economic uncertainty and political strife, as well as investments with potential for price appreciation.
