What Is a Troy Ounce Of Silver?

Silver along with other precious metals is typically measured in troy ounces. One troy ounce is equal to 32,151 grams of silver in the metric system of grams and kilograms. There are however other units of measurement used worldwide. Troy ounces are slightly heavier than conventional ounces.

Inflation concerns are again mounting with energy price hikes and the cost of food increasing. Inflation typically leads investors to consider silver as a safe option against economic unrest and may be a reason why silver is trading higher since July 2020. Coronavirus concerns have coalesced with investors’ need to accumulate during troubled times.

Moreover, demand for silver is set to grow in the coming years particularly following the 2030/2035 move towards electrification and clean energy. Silver has unique properties in electronic circuit boards, which may boost its attraction for manufacturers to propel their energy transition to electric vehicles.
