On the obverse of the 1 oz Antique Leviathan Finding Silverbug Island Silver Round youll find the sea serpent known as the leviathan. The leviathan is mentioned in the books of Job, Amos, Pslam 74, Pslam 104, and Isaiah. Sea serpents such as the leviathan feature prominently in the mythology of the Ancient Near East, and featured in tales from as far back as the 3rd millennium BCE.
The leviathan drew comparisons to the dragon or a world serpent, and was often referred to alongside the land-monster known as Behemoth. The leviathan was to be served to the righteous people at the end of time. Leviathan is said to live over the Sources of the Deep.
For the reverse of the 1 oz Antique Leviathan Finding Silverbug Island Silver Round, the North American Mint uses the same design for all of the silver rounds in the collection. The Silverbug Island itself appears out of the waters as a pile of silver rounds forms the landmass. In the foreground youll notice a ship wrecked on the outer banks of the island and engravings on the round denote the weight, purity, and metal content.
North American Mint was founded in 1986 by William J. LaMere Sr. Striking privately minted coins, medallions, and bullion, today the New York mint is run by his sons Billy, Brad, and Michael.
