Two notable artists have come together to assist the Silverbug community in bringing Alyx the Fair to life on the latest Silverbug Silver Fairy Round. While all designs are inspired and created by the Silverbug community, science-fiction and fantasy artist Steve Ferris brought Alyx to life for the obverse design.
Noted Italian sculptor Luigi Badia, who already this year has worked on the exciting Silver Hobo Nickel Rounds, contributed to both the obverse and reverse creation of the 1 oz Silver Antique Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Round. In particular, the reverse scarab bug design is all-new for this round.
On the reverse of the 1 oz Silver Antique Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Round is the typical scarab bug design used on the two previous releases in this series. Adding dimension and relief to this year’s reverse design, Badia’s hand-carved design brings the reverse design field up a notch in terms of brilliance and beauty.
The obverse side of the silver round features the image of Alyx the Fairy, surrounded by chains. The symbolism equates to silver’s current constraint at the hands of market manipulators, but Alyx’s devious facial expression suggests a breakout could occur at any time.
Each of these 1 oz Silver Antique Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Rounds bears an antique finish. With modern technology, mints can add age and unique luster to brand-new products. An antique finish gives any silver round a warm, subtle depth to its design accents.
