There are countless options when it comes to investing in or even collecting silver precious metals today. While bars and bullion coins are popular, silver rounds are gaining their own traction in the market as new investors and collectors look for affordable, diverse options to build their portfolios or diversify their personal collection.
Silver.com is proud to carry a wide variety of silver rounds. While many of our products come from private mints with established, long-running programs, other silver rounds are available as one-off options or limited release products. The following looks at the rising popularity of silver rounds, as well as the variety of odds-and-ends pieces in our Silver.com catalog.
Viewed as a snapshot of the current economic climate, silver products often increase in popularity with the rising price of silver and the combined economic chaos of investment markets. Although lower silver prices can also have the effect of pushing more investors into the marketplace as new investors look to buy as much as they can at once, higher prices for silver also have a positive impact when associated with economic turmoil, such as the Great Recession or the 2016 Brexit decision.
Other silver rounds gain popularity when prices are rising because continued economic uncertainty and the long-term value of holding silver make all silver products a smart bid. The difference that sets silver rounds apart are the lower premiums over the spot price than some silver bars and almost all silver bullion coins.
Speaking of silver bullion coins, the greatest benefit that silver rounds have compared to popular bullion coins is the producer. Yes, coins from the United States Mint, Royal Canadian Mint, and Perth Mint (among others) are in high demand, and they are among the highest quality coins available today. However, there are two hurdles preventing average investors and new investors from getting into the market.
First, many of the sovereign coins released by these mints are restricted in production on one level or another. For example, Perth Mint coins such as the Australian Silver Kookaburra and Australian Silver Koala have limited mintages (usually maxed at 1 million) that restrict the amount available on an annual basis. In the case of the American Silver Eagle, the United States Mint strikes the coins to meet demand. However, the Mint has been forced to institute an allocation program restricting the volume at times to meet the immense demand for silver coins.
More importantly, the coins struck by these mints have higher premiums over the spot price of silver. The demand for these coins and the limited mintage of each leads to higher prices, making it difficult for collectors to regularly purchase the designs they covet and tougher for new investors to break into the market.
There are other silver rounds currently available on Silver.com that focus on brilliant designs inspired by the ancient world. From the gods and goddesses of Norse mythology, feared beasts of the deepest seas, and the Ancient Egyptians, there are numerous silver rounds available with breathtaking, one-of-a-kind designs. Included in our current collection of rounds you’ll find some of the following designs from various mints.
The Kraken Silver Round series was developed in coordination with Coin Creator Julie Lindquist and Anonymous Mint. Lindquist and Anonymous partnered with North American Mint as the production facility for this exciting round series.
In total, this program includes a 1 oz proof-like silver round and a 1 oz Antique silver round. The proof-like rounds have a mirrored finish with slight hints of frosted finishes on the background. The antique rounds meanwhile have a subtle depth and warm hues added to the coin through chemical treatments that give them the appearance of decades, if not centuries, of use in the hands of humans.
The proof-like rounds had a total mintage of 3,000, while the antique rounds were capped at just 2,000. Each round features One Troy ounce of .999 fine silver, and features the following design details:
Osborne Precious Metals Norse God Rounds
Each of the silver rounds in this Norse God Silver Series features one of the five main gods or goddesses of Norse mythology. The rounds count 10 in total, but there are actually five releases in the 1 oz. weight and five releases in the 5 oz weight, meaning each god’s image is featured twice on a Norse Silver Round. All of the rounds have a distinct antique finish that adds subtle depth to the design and enhances the overall appearance with a warm visual appeal. The designs included in this series include the following:
The reverse of each of the Antique Norse God Silver Rounds you’ll find the same image, that of a Valkyrie. The Valkyrie were warrior maidens hand-chosen by Odin, Father of the Gods, and were tasked with riding their steeds in the skies above the battlefields of mankind. The Valkyrie would choose who lived and died. All of 1 oz. silver rounds in this series had a maximum mintage of just 2,000 rounds and ships in a display box that includes a signed Certificate of Authenticity.
Norse God Silver Rounds are actually a collaborative project between Osborne Precious Metals, as the production partner, and Anonymous Mint as the creative partner. Julie Lindquist developed the program, with the Norse artwork of Howard David Johnson brought to life on the blanks created by Italian Master Sculptor Luigi Badia.
Traveling across time and distance, the ½ oz Monarch Egyptian Silver Rounds are a rare ½ oz round with a special characteristic not often found (purposely) on precious metals. The designs in this series were purposely hand-stamped on each round off center. This gives the coins a sense of old world charm and appearance, given the lack of precise coining presses prior to the modern era. To further enhance the appeal of these ½ oz rounds, Monarch applied an antiquing patina and anti-polish to give the coin’s a faded, centuries-old look. Design features of these rounds include:
For the Medusa Silver Rounds, Anonymous Mint developed four different versions of the round. The 1 oz. version of the Medusa Silver Round was available in a Proof-Like finish with a maximum mintage of 2,000 rounds, along with a separate 1 oz Antique finish round. Both feature edge lettering, individual serial numbers, and Certificates of Authenticity.
The 5 oz. series also features a Proof-Like round and an Antique finish round. As with the 1 oz versions, these rounds included edge lettering, individual serial numbers, and a Certificate of Authenticity. The design on all four rounds in the series is the same for both the obverse and reverse:
In some cases, there are silver round series available that aren’t inspired by anything other than the individuals known to exist in history or the activities enjoyed by human civilizations across the globe. Monarch Precious Metals, Anonymous Mint, and Stardust Silver bring us three particular examples.
In its all-new 2016 3D domed sports series, Monarch has released a total of two 3D domed silver rounds celebrating basketball and soccer. The basic elements of each round are the same, featuring a concave reverse side to the rounds and a 3D, ball-shaped side on the obverse that brings each sport’s ball to life. Specific design elements of the rounds are included below:
Remembered through the ages as Blackbeard, the world’s most famous pirate was born in Bristol, England in 1680 as Edward Teach. He arrived in Jamaica as a member of the Royal Navy aboard the HMS Windsor and was known as Edward Thatch Jr. The Blackbeard Silver Rounds from Anonymous Mint and Coin Creator Julie Lindquist are available in 1 oz. and 5 oz. options, with an antique finish.
From 1706 to 1716, it is believed Teach served as a sailor or privateer for the British during Queen Anne’s War. He eventually joined the crew of Benjamin Hornigold on the Bahamian island of New Providence. After serving with Hornigold for a year, Blackbeard set out on his own aboard a captured French merchant vessel he renamed Queen Anne’s Revenge. Details of the design include:
The Terminator series of feature films made actor Arnold Schwarzenegger a household name around the globe. His role as the T-800 Terminator sent to 1984 from 2029 to kill Sarah Connor sparked one of the greatest film franchises of the 1980s, which included famous reboots in the early 2000s.
The series includes a 1 oz Terminator Silver Round and a 2 oz Terminator Silver Round, both designed by artist Michael Berman and sculptor Heidi Wastweet. Each of the rounds in this series had a maximum mintage set at just 5,000 rounds for global distribution and included individual serial numbers, as well as Certificates of Authenticities.
On the reverse face of the coin you’ll find the full-length figure of the skeletal system of the T-800 Terminator killing machine. In the middle is a bar that features the engraving of “The Terminator,” while the coin’s weight is engraved to the left, and its purity and metal content to the right. Above the “Terminator” engraving, there is an inscription of the tagline used in the movie to describe the setting of the movies.
The obverse features a frightening image of the face of the T-800 Terminator, with the engraving of “Cyberdyne Systems T-800. In the background of the image is a futuristic battlefield representative of the year 2029 from which the terminator was sent back in time.

Hobo folk art of the late 19th and early 20th century is alive and well courtesy of renowned Spanish master artisan Paolo Curcio. Hobos were famous for carving their own designs on US circulation currency in an effort to leave their mark on the world. Often targeted was the Buffalo Nickel from James Earle Fraser.
The planned 5-round series features a variety of interpretations on the Buffalo Nickel with each new release.

From time to time, mints will produce silver rounds that don’t fit into a current series and don’t constitute a long-running, annual series of rounds either. There are a few examples of this currently available on Silver.com from two different minting operations.
The TIME Series Silver Rounds was produced in collaboration with Chautauqua Silver Works. The private facility was founded in Western New York by Ron Kinney. Chautauqua Silver Works is responsible for the design of each round, with North American Mint providing the production capacity for the series. Designs available include the first two from the series, with the following details:
Both releases to date feature the same exact reverse design. Included on the reverse of the round includes the Chautauqua Silver Works name along the top, with the unique engraving of “One More Ounce – One Less Fetter” on the bottom. In the middle of the round’s bullseye design on this face is the weight, purity, and metal content of the round, along with the word “Bullseye” and the periodic number and symbol for Silver (AG 47).
A well-known science fiction and fantasy artist, Frank Frazetta’s estate released some of his most popular designs for use in the Legacy Collection from Osborne Precious Metals. His two most famous designs appear across a lineup that includes six rounds in total.
The Silver Warrior was Frank’s first, and most popular, major design. It was used as the cover art for the paperback release of the “Conan the Barbarian” adventure tale. His design not only catapulted his career to new heights, it also changed the face of the sword and sorcery genre. The Silver Warrior was available in a 1 oz Antique Silver Proof, 1 oz Silver Proof, and 5 oz Silver Proof Round. Mintage for each was set at:
The second release in the series celebrated another of Frazetta’s iconic designs. This particular design has experienced widespread use over the years. The Death Dealer design was created in 1973. It originally appeared on the album cover of Molly Hatchet’s first record release, and has since appeared on various posters, art works, and even the logo of the US Army’s III Corps.
The round featured the same availability, with a 1 oz Antique Silver, 1 oz Silver Proof, and 5 oz Silver Proof round. Mintages across the three options were the same:
