Long before the rise of smartphones, those using mobile devices in the early days of texting would look for simple symbols to replace lengthy text to express emotions. The first emojis were used in the 1990s in online chatrooms, but were simpler than what we are accustomed to today with the use of punctuation to form smiley faces or other symbols, for example, : ) for a smile. Today, emojis have exploeded in popular, with more than 3,000 different emojis available for mobile texting. JM Bullion now offers a new silver round collection honoring the various emojis used by billions on a daily basis.
The new Emoji Series of silver rounds comes with proof visuals for each design. This indicates the rounds will have frosted designs and mirrored background fields. These 1 Troy oz rounds have .999 pure silver content and will ship with either plastic flips or rounds of 20 tubes. The rounds in this series come with a common reverse field that shows a cascade of various different emojis that are popular with mobile users today.
On the obverse side of the first release in the Emoji Series, you will find an image of arguably one of the most common emojis, the smiley face. This simple design shows a large smiley face with bright eyes and a wide smile.
The first emojis came to mobile devices in 1999 when designer Shigetaka Kurita developed a set of 176 emojis. Emojis have become so popular that they are used well beyond the world of mobile texting. An estimated 900 million emojis are used on Facebook messenger on a daily basis, with half of the comments on Instagram each day consisting of emojis.
