Each of the 2 oz Silver Bug Giant Longhorn Beetle Silver Rounds available to you today in this listing is available as a brilliant ultra-high-relief product. Considered an art medal by Intaglio Mint, the ultra-high-relief format is achieved through the use of a 39 mm blank instead of a larger 50 mm blank that might be typical in a 2 Troy ounce silver round.
The rounds have beautiful, bold design images as a result of the use of these smaller rounds. The thickness of the round and its high-relief strike bring the Giant Longhorn Beetle to life on the obverse of the rounds, while also making a bold statement on the reverse with the mint logo. The 2 oz Silver Bug Giant Longhorn Beetle Round is ideal for collecting, stacking, and saving for the long term!
On the obverse of each Silver Bug Giant Longhorn Beetle Silver Round is the popping image of the Giant Longhorn Beetle in the center of the design field. It is illuminated in the background with the use of a deep-domed radial burst. There is a stippled border around it and the motto of the Silverbugs, “In Silver We Trust,” engraved below. You’ll also find “All Hail the Silver Bug” engraved above.
Giant Longhorn Beetles get their name from the massive mandibles they possess, which often account for one-third of the insect’s total body length. The average size of a Giant Longhorn Beetle is 17 cm, with the average male’s body (not counting mandibles) reaching 12 cm in length.
The reverse of the 2 oz Silver Bug Giant Longhorn Beetle Silver High Relief Round features the Intaglio Mint logo in the center. There is a stippled border to this side and radial burst as well, with “Two Troy Ounces” engraved above, lightning bolts on each side (centrally) of the outer design rim, and “.999 Fine Silver” engraved below.
