Nickel is used as a super alloy in stainless steel, coins, and plating

Nickel is a metallic element that is corrosion resistant, hard and ductile. It belongs to the transition metals and is found mostly in combination with sulfur and iron.

Nickel is a silver- white metal that takes on a high polish and finds many uses as an alloy and as plating. Some of the uses for nickel are coins and plating due to it’s permanence in air and it’s inertness to oxidation.
