Private mints in North America and around the globe take the lead in producing silver rounds for investors and collectors to purchase. Unable to offer silver coins as private mints, these facilities focus on providing an alternative to the limited mintage figures and higher premiums of silver bullion coins in the form of silver rounds. Silver round collection such as the T.I.M.E. Series from the North American Mint offers silver collectors an option different than typical proof coins. Learn more about this particular collection below.
The T.I.M.E. Series from the North American Mint features five different designs in total, with each design representing a different concept of the passage of time. The silver for sale in this collection features a shared reverse design. The North American Mint produced the rounds in collaboration with the Chautauqua Silver Works in the United States. The Silver Works has its proprietary logo, that of a bullseye, is featured on the reverse side of each round. The name “Chautauqua Silver Works” is inscribed along the top design rocker, with “One More Ounce, One Less Fetter” included below. In the center of the bullseye is the “Bullseye Ag 47,” with the latter marking the periodic element shorthand for silver and its number on the periodic table. Immediately surrounding this, “One Ounce .999 Fine Silver.”
On the obverse side of each T.I.M.E. Series silver round, you’ll find a unique design that captures how time marches on with different visuals:
All of the silver rounds in this collection have proof-like visuals, with frosted design elements and mirrored background fields. The rounds in the T.I.M.E. Series have limited mintage figures of 10,000 per design and contain 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver. The rounds also have individual serial numbers etched onto the edges of the round.
The five rounds of the T.I.M.E. Series were created by Chautauqua Silver Works, a private silver works in Western New York. Founder Ron Kinney leads the design team at Chautauqua, which worked with the North American Mint as the production facility for the collection. The North American Mint was founded in 1986 by William J. LaMere Sr. and is one of the largest medal arts businesses in the country.
