The 5 oz Silver Antique Silverbug Tree Fairy Round has the lowest mintage figure by far in the Tree Fairy release. Among the four silver rounds offered in the collection, the 1 oz silver proof has the highest mintage at 5,000 rounds in total. The 1 oz antique has a mintage of 2,500 and the 5 oz proof has a mintage of 1,000.
All of the antique silver rounds in the collection have a stunning, hand-scraped antique finish. The use of antiquing in the production of modern silver rounds is done to convey the appearance of ancient coinage, as well as enhance the intricate details in the design that might not otherwise pop out in regular production.
Ariel the Tree Fairy is the fourth release in the Silverbug Fairy Series inspired by the Silverbug community on Reddit. The rounds were originally released through the North American Mint, but more recently are a work of Heads or Tales Coin Company and the Osborne Mint, America’s oldest operating private mint.
On the obverse of the 5 oz Silver Antique Silverbug Tree Fairy Round you’ll find the image of Ariel. Her graceful figure is depicted levitating in front of the cloven oak tree, with her hair and dress flowing in the breeze. The tree attempts to use its muscular roots and powerful limbs to entrap her, as she cuts a figure of non-aggression wishing only for her freedom.
The reverse of all Silverbug Tree Fairy Rounds includes the scarab beetle design. Used on the reverse of all rounds in the collection, the scarab beetle is now hand-carved for the rounds to bring out its full potential and added beauty.
