If there’s one group you can trust to come up with an inspiring, in-demand design for a silver round it’s an online community of silver enthusiasts.

Each 5 oz Proof Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Silver Round available here is in brand-new condition. The round ships to you in an AirTite capsule, and features a numbered Certificate of Authenticity that corresponds to the edge lettering that marks the round’s minting order. The proof finish of these rounds is brilliantly mirrored.
As the 3rd design in the Silverbug Fairy Series, the Alxy the Fairy design comes from famed science-fiction and fantasy artist Steve Ferris. His design depicts the Alyx the Fairy constrained by chains, but the mischievous look on her face signals that she’s ready to break free any time.
On the obverse side of the 5 oz Proof Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Silver Round is Ferris’ Alxy design. She is encircled by a chain as the edge framing, and is accompanied by the popular Silverbug phrase “In Silver We Trust,” and the year of issue for the round.
The reverse face of the round features the common scarab bug used on the Ariana and Archer designs from 2014 and 2015, with one important twist. The scarab bug on these 5 oz. Proof Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Silver Rounds has been hand-carved for 2016, adding an extra level of relief and dimension to the round’s design.
All 5 oz Proof Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Silver Rounds are now produced by the Osborne Coin Company. Osborne Mint traces its history back to 1835, a time when the nation lacked a singular sovereign banknote. It is the oldest private mint in the United States, and is predated by just 43 years by the United States Mint.
