The obverse depicts a stormy sea with a large whirlpool circling in the center. A ship and a wooden chest carrying a cache of coins are caught up in the whirlpool’s mighty pull. The phrase “hold it, own it” is inscribed on the chest. The year of issue is inscribed on this side as well.
The common reverse of the Silverbug Island series features a pirate ship overflowing with treasure in front of an island made entirely of coins. “Welcome to Silverbug Island” is inscribed, along with the weight and purity.
Produced by the North American Mint, the Silverbug Island series of proof silver rounds was inspired by the Silverbugs Reddit community. It’s a place for people to gather and discuss their passion for tangible assets and precious metal bullion.
The Whirlpool design is the fourth design in the Silverbug Island series, which will include eight designs when complete. Each design involves the perils faced by pirates on their quest for treasure.
Each sequentially numbered round comes in a protective plastic capsule.
