Lead is a strategic metal because it is a component of electric batteries (3/4 of its global consumption). It is also used in the chemical industry for pigment manufacturing and in many other industries: manufacturing of arms, pipes, hunting and fishing equipment ...
It can be very sought after in the case of a nuclear accident because it is used as a bulwark against radioactive waves. The 1kg lead bar is ideal for storage. It doesn't lose its industrial properties over time, it does not rust.
