Why Buy Silver Rounds?
Investors will find their own reasons to buy silver rounds. It could be that the design of a particular round is attractive or the reputation of the refinery/mint which produced the round is stellar. On the whole, there are a few common reasons to buy silver rounds that both investors and collectors will understand:
- Low premiums: when compared to silver bullion coins, silver rounds have much lower premiums over the spot price of silver because they are not refined and produced by sovereign mints.
- Popular designs: bullion coin programs often have the most coveted designs, but the higher premiums and mintage caps on coins make it difficult for all investors and collectors to get the products they desire. Silver rounds offer various options, such as reproduced designs from sovereign bullion coins and unique designs not found on other silver products.
- Greater availability: with the exception of one-time designs and special collections, silver rounds don’t come with mintage caps. If you’re looking for historic US coin designs or other popular images, they are constantly struck on silver rounds for investors and collectors alike to purchase.
With so many choices, the hardest part of buying silver rounds might be deciding which ones you want to purchase. Below you can find out more about some of the popular collections and regularly issued silver rounds available to numismatists today.
Historic US Coin Designs
Many North American buyers who cannot find historic US circulation coins will turn to silver rounds as a way of getting their hands on those coveted designs, while also making a safe investment in silver. A number of private mints in the United States issue both 1 oz silver rounds and fractional silver rounds with popular designs once used on circulation currency in the United States. Examples of the designs include:
- Buffalo Nickel: Issued by the United States Mint from 1913 to 1938, the Buffalo Nickel was designed by James Earle Fraser. It featured the image of a Native American male on the obverse in right-profile relief and an American bison on the reverse face.
- Morgan Silver Dollar: The Morgan Dollar was created by George T. Morgan, a British artist and engraver hired on at the United States Mint in the 1870s. The Morgan Silver Dollar was available from 1878 to 1904, and again in 1921, and marked the return of US silver dollar coinage after a five-year hiatus following the end of free silver coining at the United States Mint.
- Walking Liberty Half Dollar: Designed by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916, the Walking Liberty design depicts America’s drive forward toward a brighter future. Liberty is depicted walking toward the sun on the horizon with the American flag on her shoulders. The reverse includes the image of a bald eagle on a rock ledge where an alpine sapling is sprouting.
- Incuse Indian Gold Eagle: The Gold Eagle coinage was among the first gold coins issued by the United States Mint. From 1908 through 1924, the Incuse Indian was issued by the US Mint on the Quarter Eagle and Half Eagle coinage. The design came from Bela Lyon Pratt with a left-profile portrait of a Native American in full headdress with the American bald eagle clutching a Roman fasces on the reverse. The Incuse Indian was unique for its inset design which set the design into the coin’s surface leaving few design points above the coin’s surface.
1 Troy oz and fractional silver rounds with historic US coin designs come from a variety of private mints. Among the most common issuers of these designs are Sunshine Minting, SilverTowne, Golden State Mint, and Great American Mint.
