The Panama-Pacific International Expo celebrated the completion and opening of the Panama Canal and was hosted in San Francisco, California, over several months in 1915. The Intaglio Mint has beautiful silver rounds commemorating American coin designs of the era that likewise celebrated the event. Right now, you can buy 2 oz Silver Pan Pac Octagonal Rounds online from Provident Metals.
Your purchase of a 2 oz Silver Pan Pac Octagonal Round comes in brand-new condition from the Intaglio Mint. The silver rounds available here come with protective plastic flips for individual rounds and mint tubes for multiples of 10 rounds.
Minerva, the Roman goddess of wisdom and skill, is depicted on the obverse of the 2 oz Pan Pac Octagonal Silver Round. She is depicted in left-profile relief with a Corinthian plumed helmet on her head and shield at her side. The shield has the date of the Panama-Pacific International Expo on it in Roman numerals, with the inscriptions around the design field reading United States of America and Two Troy Ounces. Inside the design element, you will find In God We Trust, the national motto of the nation.
A symbol long associated with wisdom itself is featured on the reverse of 2 oz Pan Pac Octagonal Silver Rounds. The owl is a symbol of wisdom, but also one of bad omens. It is closely associated with Minerva in Roman mythology. Here, it is depicted with pine cones from the Ponderosa pine around it. Inscriptions include Panama-Pacific Exposition and San Francisco.
The designs found on both sides of this silver round are inspired by a $50 US Gold Coin issued in 1915 to mark the occasion of the expo. The Panama-Pacific International Expo took place through late summer in 1915 in San Francisco and helped populate and revitalize a part of town that had never previously been occupied by residents. The city was selected to host the exposition as a way of showcasing the progress it had made in recovering from the devastation of the 1906 earthquake.
These silver rounds come from the Intaglio Mint, a small private mint that focuses on creating truly unique, inspirational silver rounds for collectors.

" This round is so original and I enjoy it in my collection. I just wish there was a plastic holder for it. The round is very well made."
