Yes. If you have an airspace and venting from top to bottom, put the foil facing the underside of the metal roof. Where is the home located?

Eric You said put the foil facing the underside of the metal roof, isn't the foil suppose to be facing the inside of the attic? Perhaps it's different for metal roofs....in any case I'm planning on reroofing my house with metal, I'm going to put plywood between the rafters and the metal roofing. What's the best material to place between the plywood and the metal for sound dampening and as a water barrier? Thanks

If you are created a vent space, the radiant barrier faces the hotter surface.
