2 oz Silver Bullion Products from JM Bullion
When investors and collectors buying silver think about popular weights, 1 oz and 10 oz typically come to mind. These are the most widely circulated weights for most coins and even among silver bars for sale. However, 2 oz silver bullion offers a viable option for investors as well, with the number of silver coins and rounds growing by the year. Scroll the paragraphs below to learn about some of the common 2 oz silver products.
2 oz Silver Bars
You’ll find a number of private refineries around the world offering silver bars in a 2 oz weight. These silver bars range in style from minted ingots to hand-poured and cast bars. Most have mint logos and basic information engraved on them, though you’ll occasionally find examples of 2 oz silver bars with intricate designs. As just one example of the products available out there in this weight:
- 2 oz Monarch Hand Poured Stackers: these bars are a new take on stackable silver bars. Typically a stackable silver bar is a minted ingot. The squared edges and flat surface make them easy to stack. However, Monarch Precious Metals only hand pours and stamps its silver bars, so these hand-poured 2 oz silver bar combines the flat surfaces and well-defined edges of ingots with the beautiful, rustic appeal of hand-poured products.
2 oz Silver Rounds
When it comes to variety, 2 oz silver rounds offer countless options for investors and collectors. There are some silver rounds offered regularly from the producing mint with no mintage cap set on their production. Other silver rounds are struck with one-time design elements and come with low mintage figures. Examples of 2 oz silver rounds you’ll find include the following:
- Winged Liberty: this 2 oz silver round boasts the designs from the obverse and reverse of the circulation Mercury Dime from American history. Liberty is on the obverse in left-profile relief with a winged Phrygian cap and the Roman fasces wrapped in an olive branch is on the reverse.
- Saint-Gaudens: America’s most popular coin design, Saint-Gaudens’ vision of Liberty comes to a 2 oz silver round with the image of Liberty on the obverse as she walks toward the viewer clutching a large torch and a massive olive branch.
- Indian Head: from the former $10 Gold Eagle coin, this left-profile bust of Liberty with a feathered headdress appears on the obverse of these 2 oz silver rounds with the design on the reverse from the popular Indian Head Gold Eagle.
- Abraham Lincoln: offering the same images as the Lincoln cent, this 2 oz silver round has the left-profile bust of President Abraham Lincoln created by Victor David Brennan in 1909 for use on the circulation penny.
2 oz Silver Coins
The fastest-growing segment of 2 oz silver comes in the form of silver coins. There are both collectible series available with distinctive formats and designs, and silver bullion coins that are regularly issued each year in some cases. There are too many to list in full, but the following examples highlight the growing diversity among 2 oz silver bullion coins:
- Norse Gods: a collection of high-relief, antique polished silver coins, the Norse Gods series was issued for two different nations. In both cases, the coins had an antique polish with intricate designs representing the main gods from Norse mythology. The Cook Islands issue was smaller, but the Tuvalu release was robust and notable for the use of rimless blanks.
- Myths & Legends: issued for the Solomon Islands, the Myths & Legends Series covered two years of issue and also featured high-relief, antique polishes on rimless blanks. The designs included images of dragons, griffins, the minotaur, and Medusa.
- Silver Libertad: arguably the most prominent 2 oz silver coin, the Mexican Silver Libertad’s annual bullion coin in this weight was introduced in 1996 by the Mexican Mint. It shares the same designs of Winged Victory and the Mexican coat of arms as all other coins in the series. The 2 oz Silver Libertad is available in both bullion and proof versions.
- Queen’s Beast: the Royal Mint of England introduced the Queen’s Beast Series of coins in 2016. The collection offers 10 different designs of heraldic beasts from the history of the monarchy and focuses on those beasts sculpted for presentation during the 1953 coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II. The 2016 debut included 1 oz gold, 1/4 oz gold, and a 2 oz silver bullion coin. This was the first-ever coin of its weight in British history.
- Comic-themed Coins: The Perth Mint and other coining facilities around the world have capitalized on the popularity of Marvel and DC feature films with corresponding silver coin programs. There are several common examples available at the moment. The Royal Canadian Mint issues DC Comic silver coins, including a 30th anniversary Dark Knight coin and a Batman v. Superman Dawn of Justice coin. Perth Mint is a leading producer of Marvel Comic silver coins, including a colorized Thanos coin issued for Fiji to mark the release of Avengers: Infinity War. Another example would be the Antique Fiji Marvel Iron Man Mask coin that offers a perfect 3D representation of Iron Man’s mask.
- Biblical Series: it is hard to argue about the program that is the most diverse. The Scottsdale Mint introduced the Biblical Series of silver coins in 2015. There are six designs offered every year in the series and each one captures original artwork from Gustave Dore, a French artist whose illustrations of the Bible debuted in London in the 1860s. Well-known stories from the Christian Bible are featured on the reverse of these coins that are rimless blanks with a high-relief strike and antique polish. Each coin has Queen Elizabeth II’s third-generation portrait on the obverse as created in 1985 by Raphael Maklouf. The coins have limited mintages of 1,499 coins per design and ship inside of Bible-themed display boxes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
