Buy the Alligator 1 oz Silver Round from the American Wildlife Series and celebrate the unique and diverse wildlife of North America. Struck with one troy ounce of .999 fine silver at the Elemetal Mint, a certified ISO9001 facility, each Alligator is eligible to be included in a self-directed precious metals IRA.
The obverse design features a left-facing alligator standing in the thick marshes of Florida’s Everglades. Powerful and awe-inspiring, the intricately detailed image was designed by Thomas Rogers, Sr., a former United States Mint sculptor and engraver.
The Everglades are a diverse wetlands habitat that stretch from central to south Florida. This ecosystem is known for flooding and droughts, which makes the unique region a complex system of swamps, forests, rock-lands and more. The vast wildlife of the area is made up of numerous types of animals, including the alligator, which can grow up to 15 feet long and weigh up to 1,000 pounds.
The Everglades are visited by tourists, hunters, fishermen and many other outdoor enthusiasts each year. While its overall capacity is still very large, the Everglades have been shrinking over the last hundred years due to human encroachment.
Alligators are known for their mighty jaws and muscular, armored bodies. They reside mostly in Louisiana and Florida, and while they tend to eat many types of prey, the alligator will eat just about anything if it is hungry. Alligators that occupy the Everglades are crucial to the land’s ecosystem and are a keystone species in these wetlands.
The common reverse of the American Wildlife Series features an illustration of the United States under a soaring bald eagle that clutches a banner in its mouth reading “By Thomas D. Rogers, Sr.” Also inscribed on the reverse are “AMERICAN WILDLIFE” and “1 OUNCE .999 FINE SILVER”.
The Alligator is one of 10 designs in the American Wildlife Series, which pays tribute to some of the most beautiful landscapes in the U.S. and the creatures that inhabit it. Each design will be available as individual 1 oz silver and copper rounds, or as a Complete Set. The obverse and reverse of each round in the American Wildlife Series was drawn by Rogers.
