London’s Royal Mint has more than 1,000 years of history minting coins and bullion bars. The Elemetal Mint is the largest private mint in the United States of America, and is newly formed as of 2015 following a collaborative effort from NTR Metals, Ohio Precious Metals, and Provident Metals.
Silver rounds are increasingly popular right now because demand for silver products is high, and silver rounds are available at much lower premiums over the spot price of silver. Bullion and proof coins from sovereign mints have higher premiums, making silver rounds more attractive to some investors and collectors.
On the reverse side of the round you’ll find the image of a bald eagle atop a shield, with its head bowed in respect. The shield bears the flags of the both the United Kingdom (left) and the United States (right), as a symbol of the cooperation between the Royal Mint and Elemetal Mint.
The obverse side of the round has the brand logo of the Royal Mint Refinery, which includes “RMR” in the middle of the design and the words “Royal Mint Refinery” encircling it. Also included on this side are engravings of the weight, purity, and metal content of the round.
