Hi Xuan,

In the lesson de l'argent can mean 'some' or 'any'. e.g.

J'ai de l'argent à te donner =I have some money to give you

Vous avez de l'argent en Euros? Do you have any money in Euros?

In what context have you seen 'd'argent'?

Normally when argent means 'silver' , we will use 'en',

i.e. Elle a un beau collier en argent= She had a pretty silver necklace.

Hope this helps!
