Silver front-surface mirror.
The most reflective of all elements is silver, so mirrors where it is placed on the front surface are the most reflective known objects. Common mirrors where the reflective surface is on the back side suffer from the fact that the light has to go through the glass twice, and are thus much less reflective overall. On the other hand, they don't scratch nearly as easily.
