The new Silver Bug Collection from Intaglio Mint is inspired by the Reddit group known as Silverbugs who have a deep affection for silver. The inspiration from the Silverbugs is reflected in the literal design of the rounds, which use bugs and insects. All rounds have obverse engravings of text used by the Silverbugs that include “All Hail the Silver Bug” and “In Silver We Trust.”
On the obverse of the 2 oz Silver Bug Silver Goliath Beetle High Relief Round is the image of the Goliath beetle. Named after the famed Goliath beast from the Christian bible, the Goliath beetle is one of five species in the Goliathus genus and is the largest insect in the world when measured by size, bulk, and weight.
The reverse of the 2 oz Silver Goliath Beetle High Relief Round features the design of the mint’s logo. The Intaglio Mint is unlike any other “boutique” mint in the world. A three-man operation, the precious metal and coin enthusiasts at Intaglio have developed countless low-mintage round series for collectors. The Intaglio Mint’s “I” logo is set on a radial burst background field with a stippled border.
