When silver prices began to rise to $50 an ounce, the largest of silver refiners, like Handy &Harman, Johnson-Matthey, and Engelhard set on a journey to produce some of the most elegant silver bar products of their time. These were primarily 100-ounce and 10-ounce bars. However, in 1982 Engelhard struck gold when they launched a 1-ounce silver round. It showcases an old man digging for gold. From then on there, Prospectors dominated the silver market with no competition at all for a very long time!


For the obverse of the 1 oz Silver 1987 Engelhard Prospector Round, the legendary image of a Prospector is engraved. Commonly, a prospector is someone who digs for the most gorgeous of natural minerals like gold. Yet here on the surface of a silver round, you will see the design of an old man looking for such. The inscriptions on this side of the round include: U.S.A 1987, and The American Prospector. A circle of beads surrounds the whole design.


For the reverse of the 1 oz Silver 1987 Engelhard Prospector Round, the image of an American Eagle is engraved. Unlike other silver products in production, the design of the Eagle is reversed. It depicts an American Eagle in flight while it clutches onto a branch. Its wings spread far out while it engulfs the majority of the round with its size and magnificence. The inscriptions on this side of the round include: Engelhard, and One Troy Ounce 999+Fine Silver. The outer rim of the round is decorated with a beaded circle like the obverse.
