The Silverbug community is unique in that it is heavily involved in the precious metals industry. This group started out by sharing their preferences and insights on the industry, but now they create their own products, such as the 2016 1 oz Silverbug Mermaid Silver Round, which is now available at Silver.com. The 2016 1 oz Silverbug Mermaid Silver Round is part of the Welcome to Silverbug Island series of silver rounds.
- Arrives in a protective plastic capsule.
- Third release for the Welcome to Silverbug Island series.
- Consists of one troy ounce of .999 pure silver in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
- Obverse features the image of a mermaid under the sea.
The obverse of this round bears the image of mermaid, a half-human and half-fish mythical creature, swimming under the sea. The mermaid is elegantly showcasing a treasure chest full of gold and silver coins, which would be a great find for the pirates on the ship sailing behind the mermaid. The treasure chest bears the engraving “Hold It, Own It.” Dolphins and fish swim around the mermaid and the sunken ship.
The reverse of this silver round has the same design as all the others in this series. The top of the round says, “Welcome to Silverbug Island.” Beneath that banner, a ship sails on the choppy seas surrounded by islands of coins, which stand tall around the ship. In the background, you can also see another ship as it sinks while birds fly overhead.
All Welcome to Silverbug Island rounds are designed by members of the Silverbug community. As the third installation of the series, there will be five more designs to come out at later dates. Earlier designs in the series include the Finding Silverbug Island and Kraken rounds.
Just like the rest of the silver rounds in the series, this one was created by the North American Mint, which works with the Silverbug Community of Reddit to produce all Welcome to Silverbug Island silver rounds. This family-owned and operated mint was founded by William J. LaMere Sr. in 1986. Now, the mint is run by his sons Billy, Brad and Michael.
