The online Silverbug community has inspired a variety of new designs when it comes to collectible silver.

The Stag Beetle is a group of beetle species that actually totals some 1,200 in total. There are, however, four primary subfamilies found within this group. The average Stag Beetle is just over 5 cm in length, though the odd member of the species can grow to a length over 12 cm in total.
As the fifth design of the Silver Bug collection from Intaglio Mint, the Stag Beetle joins a collection that pays homage to the online Reddit community of silver enthusiasts going by the name Silverbugs. These individuals might not have a particular love of insects, but they do value precious silver and these designs provide a collectible option that silver enthusiasts or bug lovers could find attractive!
The 2 oz Silver Bug Stag Beetle Silver Round is an ultra-high-relief product that uses a smaller 39mm blank instead of a larger 50mm blank to create stunning visuals in the designs on both sides. The thicker round makes the perfect collectible piece for any silver enthusiast.
On the obverse of the 2 oz Silver Bug Stag Beetle High Relief Silver Round is the design of the Stag Beetle. Like other insects featured in the Intaglio Mint Silver Bug Collection, there is a deep-domed radial burst behind the bug that excellently highlights its figure. These rounds also feature the common engravings used in the collection.
Flip it over to the reverse and you’ll find the Intaglio Mint logo. Crafted in the form of a Roman column, this capital letter “I” is surrounded immediately by the establishment year for the mint and another radial burst field. There are lightning bolts located centrally in the outer design rim, with engravings of the weight, metal content, and purity.
Intaglio Mint is the definition of a boutique mint. Though the rounds are designed by Mark Bogani, the mint is a three-man operation that brings the love of precious metals from each of the three men to bear in each lovingly crafted silver round.
