These beautifully designed rounds, designed by prolific designer Ron Kinney, are part of the T.I.M.E series of rounds released by North American Mint. Kinney has been designing rounds since 2013, with more than 10 of his unique designs featured on rounds. The thought-provoking designs in this collection are designed with layered depth and meaning. The rounds are in high demand, and can quite often prove to be difficult to find. These rounds contain .999 pure silver, and make a great addition to any collection. There are 5 designs in the T.I.M.E series of rounds, with the Shifting Gears round being the first released design.
The T.I.M.E. series of rounds was designed by Ron Kinney, from Chautauqua Silver Works, in Western New York. The designs in this series each depict a metaphorical representation of time, with deep and thought-provoking meanings. T.I.M.E stands for The Increment Measuring Existence.
Each of the designs incorporates intricate and detailed elements that add to the overall collectible desirability of these rounds.
