Each of the 1 oz Silver Leviathan Finding Silverbug Island Rounds in this collection are available in BU condition. Rounds in BU condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, but may feature minor flaws as a result of the coining process. These flaws include possible breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks.
The Finding Silverbug Island collection of rounds from North American features a total of eight different round designs. Many of them focus on ancient or mythical creatures, with previous releases featuring the mermaid and kraken. The biblical leviathan is the fifth release, and is available to investors and collectors as bullion, proof, and antique products. The proof and antique rounds are ideal for collectors, with the BU version great for investment.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Silver Leviathan Finding Silverbug Island Round you’ll find the image of the leviathan. While the Book of Job contains detailed descriptions of the leviathan, it is believed that leviathan was not a mythical being. While some believed the leviathan was a crocodile, this connection has not been definitively established.
The reverse of the Silver Leviathan Finding Silverbug Island Round features the common design theme of the collection. In this design you’ll find an island of silver rounds cresting the surface of the water, with a ship wrecked on the small shoals in the foreground. Engravings include “Welcome to Silverbug Island” and “1 Troy oz .999 Fine Silver.”
