2020 is a year that many will like to forget once it is gone, and this is predominantly because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The name of the virus is based on its status as a coronavirus threat that emerged in 2019, hence COVID-19. The pandemic has sickened millions, taken 1 million lives, and left economic disaster in its wake. The virus, like others, will abate with time and become a distant memory. You can mark the upheaval of COVID-19 with a new ultra-high-relief silver round that reminds us of the best of humanity that came out during the pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic was caused by a strain of coronavirus similar to the SARS epidemic that rattled Asia in 2003. However, SarsCOV2 has proven far more adept at both transmission and infection of those exposed to the virus. The new strain of coronavirus results in a wide range of symptoms, many of which are similar to those allergy sufferers deal with and the common flu strain that runs around the world in the winter months.
All of the 2020 2 oz Silver COVID-19 Rounds in this listing feature an ultra-high-relief strike. This type of coining process uses high-pressure settings in the coining press with multiple strikes taking place on each blank. The die strikes the blank several times to help create a deeper background field to give the design element enhanced 3D relief. The rounds available here are brand new from the mint and come with individual plastic flips.
The obverse side of 2 oz Silver COVID-19 Rounds includes a depiction of a single coronavirus molecule. Transmission and infection of the coronavirus have been helped along by its spike proteins. These receptors on the outermost layer of the molecule make COVID-19 more effective at connecting to tissue in a host, in many cases resulting in infection.
On the reverse face of 2020 2 oz Silver COVID-19 Rounds is a depiction of three molecules of the COVID-19 virus. The molecules are featured in the central design field, along with an inscription of the 2020 date mark. The weight, purity, and metal content are featured above, with an inscription of “Minted During the COVID-19 Pandemic” below.
