Silverbug Silver Fairy rounds were introduced with the Ariana design, developed and inspired by the Silverbug Reddit community. Individuals in this community have a deep affection for silver and view it as the top choice among precious metals. Ariana has since become the symbol of this group online.
Now on the fourth release, the Silverbug Silver Fairy series of rounds features Ariel the Tree Fairy. Inspired by Shakespeare’s “The Tempest,” the image of Ariel juxtaposed against the cloven oak tree mimics Shakespeare’s work with revenger and bitterness facing off against freedom and forgiveness.
Each 5 oz Silver Proof Silverbug Tree Fairy Round is available to you inside of an AirTite-brand plastic capsule to ensure long-term preservation of the round. The rounds in this collection have individual serial numbers from 1 to 1,000, in the case of 5 oz Proof Rounds, edge-lettered onto the round itself. That number corresponds to the individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity that arrives with purchase.
On the reverse of the Silver Proof Silverbug Tree Fairy Round you’ll find the image of the scarab beetle. Used on all Silver Fairy Rounds in the Silverbug Collection, this latest depiction of the scarab debuted on the third release as a new hand-carved image that brought added depth of detail to the popular image.
The obverse of the 5 oz Silver Proof Silverbug Tree Fairy Round includes the image of Ariel. She is depicted as an angelic figure levitating in front of a cloven oak tree that has a bearded face and attempts to trap her in the grip of its muscular roots and powerful limbs.
All Silver Proof Silverbug Tree Fairy Rounds are produced with input from the Silverbug Reddit community and the help of Heads or Tales Coin Company, a private entity in the United States that produces unique silver precious metals.
