Ionic bonds and Metallic bonds are different from each other..
In ionic bond, bonds are formed between the ions of any compound or its salt. Like NaCl, CuCl etc.
Tne metallic bond in metals is sometimes described as a lattice of ions surrounded by a cloud of electrons. Which is a first order approximation.
