The all-new T.I.M.E. Series from the Chautauqua Silver Works and North American Mint launches with the Shifting Gears design. The round features an intricate network of interlocking gears as its primary design, and pays homage to our differing views on time.
The makers of the TIME Shifting Gears Silver Round points out that as children feel time passes far too slowly, adults find that the shifting gears of life seem to move much faster with age, with time always seeming to elude those in pursuit of more of it.
On the obverse face of the round is the image of the interlocking gears that operate a simple pocket watch. Above the design is the engraving “Shifting Gears,” as well as the patent date of “1 Dec 1945” for the particular gears featured.
The reverse face of the coin features the bullseye design of the Chautauqua Silver Works. IN the center of the bullseye is the periodic number and symbol for silver, listed as “Ag 47.” Around that in the next circle is the engraving “One Ounce .999 Fine Silver.” Around the outermost ring of the bullseye is the engraving “Chautauqua Silver Works” above and “One More Ounce, One Less Fetter” below.
Chautauqua Silver Works was founded by Ron Kinney in Fredonia, New York. These particular T.I.M.E. Series silver rounds are distributed by the silver works in partnership with North American Mint, a privately-owned mint founded 29 years ago.
