Each of these 5 oz Silver Reverse Proof Silverbug Alyx the Fair Rounds features a reverse proof finish. In a traditional proof, the background field is mirrored and the design sets have a frosted finish that gives the round the appearance of its design floating above the background. With a reverse proof, the frosted finish is applied to the background and the design set has a mirrored finish.
Alyx the Silver Fairy is the third design from Silverbug Reddit community. Inspired by members of the community, the design was created by science fiction and fantasy artist Steve Ferris. Master Italian sculptor Luigi Badia sculpted both the Alyx design on the obverse and the scarab beetle on the reverse.
On the obverse of the 5 oz Silver Reverse Proof Silverbug Alyx the Fairy Round is the image of Alyx, with a sly look on her face that lets you know even though she’s bound now, she’s ready to breakout at any moment. Engravings include “In Silver We Trust” and the year of issue.
The reverse features the traditional scarab beetle design, but with a new twist. This round’s scarab beetle is hand-carved, adding beautiful relief and extra dimension to the design. Engravings on this side include the round’s weight, metal content, and purity.
