The first release in the TIME Series of silver rounds featured the image of the moving gears that power a clock. For the second design in the series, the creators have found a design element that anyone can understand at first glance.
An hourglass is often used in reference to the lifespan or remaining time in someone’s life. As a means of torture, captors would often use an hourglass to show their captives just how much time was left in their lives, as indicating in this silver round’s design by the human skull at the base of the hourglass from which the sand pours out into an open grave.
On the obverse side of the 1 oz TIME Series A Grain of Sand Silver Round you’ll find the image of an hourglass in the center of the design, complete with a myriad of different and crucial elements. Atop the hourglass is a baby carriage, indicating early life, while the human skull spews sand into an open grave with a headstone marked “Avery Bawdy,” indicating we all head from life to death with the sands of time.
The reverse side of the round features the marksman scope that serves as common imagery for Chautauqua Silver Works, complete with the periodic symbol and number for silver, and the round’s weight, purity, and metal content.
Chautauqua Silver Works is located in Western New York, where it was founded by Ron Kinney. These silver rounds are produced and released by Chautauqua Silver Works in coordination with the North American Mint.
