There arent many online communities that can say theyve had an major impact on the precious metals marketplace, but the Silverbug community on Reddit is one that can make that claim. The Silverbug series of silver rounds are popular beyond the community that inspired their design, and make a great investment vehicle or collectors item for numismatists. Today, the 1 oz Finding Silverbug round is available from JM Bullion.
- Contains 1 oz of .999 pure silver.
- Fourth design in the Silverbug series.
- First Version design of the Welcome to Silverbug Island Series.
- Created by Silverbug community members.
The online Silverbug community from Reddit is back with a new round design, and this time its inspired by the subreddit communitys Welcome to Silverbug Island. This round is the first in a new series of eight round designs that will track a pirate ship that is searching for buried treasure.
On the obverse face of the round is an intricate pirate-themed design. A cloudy sky features a compass in the background, while a pirate ship with In Silver We Trust on its sails floats in the shallow waters just off shore from an island. On the small plot of sand, an open treasure rests next to an X in the sand with the engraving of 2015, the rounds year of issue.
The reverse of the 1 oz Finding Silverbug Island Silver Round features a pirate ship with no sails that has run aground on an island of coins. The phrase Welcome to Silverbug Island is engraved above, while the weight, purity, and metal content of the round are engraved below.
This round, like the three versions released before it in the Silverbug Series, features a design created by a member of the Silverbug community. In addition to this Brilliant Uncirculated version, Welcome to Silverbug Island rounds will be struck in Proof and antique versions.
The North American Mint is responsible for the production of these .999 pure silver rounds, and has established a limited mintage number for the Silverbug collection.
