Dogecoin was launched in December 2013 after being developed by Billy Markus, an IBM software engineer, and Jackson Palmer, an Adobe software engineer. The two conceived of Dogecoin as a joke at first, one that was inspired by the Doge meme. However, the value of Dogecoin was quickly realized.
The two set out to create a form of crypto currency that was more accessible to the masses and more affordable. Dogecoin debuted December 19, 2013, with an initial value of $.00026 (USD) per unit. During the WallStreetBets-fueld short squeeze and market volatility in early 2021, Dogecoin saw its value skyrocket as celebrities like Elon Musk and Snoop Dogg Tweeted about Dogecoin. Currently, its value is much higher than at release, but still remains around just $.05 per unit.
A Shiba Inu is featured on the obverse of the 1 oz Silver Dogecoin Rounds. Inspired by the Doge meme, the Shiba Inu from the meme is replicated at the center with several inscriptions in broken English that are meant to reflect how a dog’s thoughts might come out in the English language.
A circuit-inspired design is found in the reverse design element of Silver Dogecoin Rounds. This design first appeared on a crypto currency round in 2011. Though simple in nature, it is meant to reflect the all-virtual nature of crypto currencies.
