Something furry, fabulous and silvery ... such as Eriophyton wallichii perhaps?
{Eriophyton wallichii Benth. is an accepted name
Eriophyton wallichianum Hook.f. {Spelling variant} Synonym }

Here's  a photo from the forum from Magnar Aspaker, one of the many generous forumists happy to share his pictures with the IRG :

I've been racking my brain to find a suggestion that could be as suitable as this. Failed  :-[.

I would be tempted to save Magnar's amazing photograph for the 'Platinum' Jubilee, Maggi.

How about Brian and Shelagh's very silvery Celmisia longifolia?   :D

That's a beauty, Cliff. 
The MOST silvery plant I've ever seen/grown is the Hawaiian silversword Argyroxiphium sandwicense subsp. macrocephalum - it has a sheen on it that would shock you.

However.... any silver treat will have to wait for another time.... we should have had a silver cover for Nr. 25... and we've missed that boat. :-\ :'(

Probably be a snowdrop !!!!

Given the price fetched this very day by the yellow snowdrop found in Scotland, Galanthus woronowii 'Elizabeth Harrison' ( 725.10 )- that might well be a good choice!

In IRG 17 of 2011, there was a piece from ZZ about the English Primula specialist, David Philbey -
you may be interested to see more of David's primulas and glasshouse display, shown by his step-son, the photographer, Jon Evans, in the AGS website :

There was talk of finding a "golden" plant for the 50th issue of the IRG - well, next month, February 2014 will see that milestone - but for the January issue the IRG is overflowing with golden flowers  as part of Wim Boen's article on Eranthis.  ;D 8)

Maggi,(or someone else),
Could you please explain in short what exactly is this IRG Index and how could this be useful to me?
I am a newbie, and I really have no idea what all these names and numbers are  ::)
Looks like a way of finding stuff. But where?
Some of my creations :)
