Silverbug Fairy Rounds arrived in 2014 with the release of the Ariana design, which was followed by 2015’s Archer design. Now, 2016 kicks off with the release of the Alyx the Fairy design.
The imagery on the 1 oz Proof Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Silver Round was inspired by members of the Reddit Silverbug community, and brought to life by two famed artists. Legendary science-fiction and fantasy artist Steve Ferris created the Alyx design used on the obverse, and then Italian sculptor Luigi Badia sculpted both the obverse and reverse designs for the round.
Each 1 oz Proof Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Silver Round is available in proof condition, with a mirrored finish that gives the round brilliant visual appeal. The scarab bug featured on the reverse as the common design theme in the Silverbug Fairy Series is now hand-carved, adding dimension to this now-familiar design.
On the obverse face of the round is the image of Alyx the Fairy. She is depicted with chain restraints around her, indicative of the market manipulators attempting to control the current silver climate in the marketplace. Engravings read “In Silver We Trust” above the design and the year of issue below.
The reverse of the 1 oz Proof Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Silver Round features the scarab bug used on the two previous designs. It features a circle in the middle of the design with the atomic symbol for silver.
Each new Proof Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Silver Round is now produced by the Osborne Coin Company (Osborne Mint). Opened in 1835, Osborne Mint is the oldest operating private mint in America, opening its doors before the nation had legal tender banknotes.
