Michael Bruce is the designer behind a popular collector’s item of silver and copper rounds. Bitcoin is widely known as a virtual currency with no physical form or representation. In 2010, Bruce introduced a design that has since been widely used to represent Bitcoin in the physical world, even though those rounds were not a financial instrument. His designs return today, and right now the 1 oz Antique Silver Bitcoin Commemorative Round is available to purchase online at Silver.com.

Osborne Mint’s Antique Silver Bitcoin Rounds feature their proprietary antique polish for a finish that gives each round the visual appeal of ancient coinage. Additionally, antiquing typically helps to enhance the intricacies of the design elements on silver precious metals.
Bitcoin is a contentious virtual currency. Not backed by any government or bank, Bitcoin enables fee-free transactions between in peer-to-peer payments and payments from individuals to merchants, and is much cheaper in foreign transactions than other fiat currencies. Bitcoin is completely anonymous and is entirely decentralized from government control.
The obverse of all 1 oz Antique Silver Bitcoin Commemorative Rounds includes the symbol meant to reference Bitcoin. This symbol is similar to that of the US Dollar, and uses a capital “B” with two vertical lines struck through it. Both sides of the rounds have an electrical circuit design reflective of the virtual-only nature of the currency.
On the reverse of the Silver Bitcoin Commemorative Rounds you’ll find Bruce’s initials and a year of issue for the rounds. None of the Bitcoin Commemorative Rounds have links to the actual virtual currency and are not a financial instrument in any way. These rounds celebrate the popularity of the crypto-currency.
Osborne Mint is located in Cincinnati, Ohio and traces its roots back to 1835. Opened during the administration of President Andrew Jackson, the Osborne Mint is America’s oldest private mint and has been open longer than there’s been a federally-issued fiat paper currency in America.
