We always try to cover infographics by one of the best publishers of them, Visual Capitalist, because they present some truly fascinating information in a way that anybody with the slightest interest in the subject will find enjoyable to read.

Never patronising, or heavy going, we love them, and below is the first in their latest four-part ‘Silver Series’ called The Many Phases of Silver. Full of unusual facts about our favourite metal, we’ll cover them all as they’re released, and you can see earlier ones from the Coin Profiles menu under Precious Metal Facts.
