For a long time it has been known that silver is an antibiotic.

Casanova used silver nitrate to treat his venereal infections.

The saying "born with a silver spoon in his mouth" comes from upper class families that were able to afford a silver pacifier for their children. Such children suffered far less infections.

So naturally certain 'mystic' properties have been attributed to silver as well.
