The Ariana Silver Round was the very first product from the Reddit Silverbug community to take the precious metals world by storm. First released in 2014, the Ariana design brought the Silverbug Silver Fairy series to life with a brilliant design. Now, that design is back on the obverse of the 5 oz Reverse Proof Silverbug Ariana Silver Round, available from JM Bullion.

When the first Silverbug Silver Rounds were released in 2014, the Ariana Silver Round was only made available in a 1 oz weight with a traditional proof finish. The immense popularity of this introductory round led to an increase in the diversity of the program as time moved on.
For example, the latest release in the series is available in a 1 oz proof, 1 oz antique finish, 5 oz proof, and 5 oz reverse proof. In an effort to revive the Ariana design and bring it back to life for silver collectors who covet the design, the 5 oz Reverse Proof Silverbug Ariana Round is now available for purchase.
These silver rounds feature a brilliant reverse proof finish. A traditional proof has a mirrored background field with a design set overlaying it that features a frosted finish to create strong contrast. With a reverse proof striking, the entire background field bears a frosted finish and the design set has a mirrored finish to create an entirely different visual appeal.
On the obverse of the 5 oz Reverse Proof Silverbug Ariana Round is the image of Ariana, the original silver fairy of the Silverbug community. Her creation was commissioned by the Reddit community in celebration of the group’s 5,000th member joining the online community.
The reverse of the 5 oz Ariana Round features the scarab beetle design, which has been in use on all Silver Fairy Rounds since the original Ariana was introduced in 2014. This side includes engravings of the round’s metal content, weight, and purity.
Osborne Coin Company is the current producer of Silverbug Silver Rounds. Located in Cincinnati, Ohio, it is the oldest operating private mint in the United States, having opened back in 1836.
