The Silverbug Reddit community is an online group of silver enthusiasts seeking out the best of the silver precious metals marketplace. Members of the community contributed to the creation and design concept of each silver round in the Silverbug Silver Fairy series.
Silverbug Silver Fairy Rounds represent the original design concepts from the online community. The rounds launched in 2014 with the Ariana design, and expanded last year in 2015 with the Silver Archer. An additional series of silver rounds was eventually unveiled in 2015 with the introduction of the Silverbug Island Series.
On the obverse of the 5 oz Silver Proof Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Round is the image of Alyx, as designed by science-fiction and fantasy artist Steve Ferris. Engravings on this face of the round include “2016” at the bottom and the Silverbug motto “In Silver We Trust” at the top of the round.
The reverse side of this round features the scarab bug design used on both the Ariana and Archer design. However, this year’s design was hand-carved for the round, adding beautiful relief and dimension to the round’s overall design.
Each of these 5 oz Silver Proof Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Rounds features a mirrored, proof finish and edge lettering to mark its position in the mintage of 1,000. All Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Rounds were struck by the Osborne Mint, America’s oldest private minting operation.
