CORRECTED-TABLE-Holdings of SPDR Gold unchanged, iShares Silver rise (May 22)

 (Corrects holdings of ETF Securities ex-US funds for gold, silver, platinum, and total figures in table)
    May 22 (Reuters) - Holdings of the largest gold-backed exchange-traded-fund (ETF), New York's SPDR Gold Trust, remained unchanged on Thursday from Wednesday, while the
largest silver-backed ETF,  New York's iShares Silver Trust, rose 1.76 percent during the same period.
    Exchange-traded funds, the most widely recognized type of ETP, back each security issued with physical stocks of a given commodity, creating a product they say is free from
counterparty risk.
