Most silver precious metal products available in today’s marketplace come from artists and designers working at or for mints. In the case of the Silverbug rounds, designs come from the inspiration of members of the Silverbug community on Reddit. Now, a new product is available from the group that takes their designs in a new direction. Right now, the 1 oz Silver Silverbugs in Space Bar is available on Silver.com.

When mankind first set foot on the moon courtesy of NASA’s efforts in the 1960s, humans had their first glimpses of the planet from the surface of another celestial body. The moon landing is an iconic moment from the 20th century, and it’s perfectly captured on the 1 oz Silver Silverbugs in Space Bar.
Each of these silver bars features a brilliant photo-engraved image of a NASA astronaut on the surface of the moon from that eventful day. The images are so clear that you can see in his visor shield the reflection of his fellow astronaut disembarking from the lunar lander onto the surfaces of the moon.
This image is captured brilliantly on the obverse side of the 1 oz Silver Silverbugs in Space Bar, which includes 3D sculpted reliefs and 2D pantograph relief design features. This face of the bar also includes the obverse design of the second silver round from the Silverbug series, the Robo Bug.
On the reverse of the bar you’ll find the image of a rocket as it takes off for the moon. Below it are images of the flames from the rocket boosters, while above is a beautiful replication of the moon. Engravings on this side include the phrase “To the Moon,” as well as the bar’s weight, purity, and metal content.
Each 1 oz Silver Silverbugs in Space Bar is available in brand-new condition from North American Mint. Founded in 1986 by William J. LaMere Sr., the Rochester, New York-based private mint is one of the largest private mints in the United States. The family-owned company is now run by LaMere’s son Billy, and his brothers Brad and Michael.
