The Silverbug Silver Round is one of the more unique precious metal products available today. It is not inspired by national pride or based upon ancient folklore from any society. Instead, it is devoted to an online community of Reddit.com users known as The Silverbugs. The group served as the inspiration for these coins, with its beloved “Ariana” design featured prominently on the round.
Available in this product listing is a 1 oz Proof Silverbug Silver Round from the third iteration of the rounds’ design. The reverse side features the image of Ariana with a bow in her left hand and her right hand drawing back an arrow from the quiver. Below her image is a sphere. An engraving above reads “In Silver We Trust.”
On the obverse side is the image that has appeared on all three versions of the Silverbug round. A winged creature is visible in the middle of the design, encircled by a round design that centers on the engraving of “Ag,” the periodic table of elements designation for silver. Other engravings read “1 Troy Ounce” and “For the Silverbug Community.”
The North American Mint produces these Proof Silverbug Silver Rounds at its facility in Rochester, New York. The family-owned mint was founded by William LaMere, and is under the direction of his three sons, Billy, Brad, and Michael, to this day.
