If you’re looking for something different to add to your collection that brings its own value, Provident Metals has an expanding range of options within our category of additional products. While some of these products feature layers of precious metals and other unique applications, it is the design of each product and its limited issue that often provides the greatest attraction for collectors.
A unique alternative to gold, silver, and platinum coins, as well as gold and silver rounds, tribute rounds are similar in appearance. Each one is in the same circular format as precious metal coins and rounds, and even boasts beautiful designs, some of which are inspired by historical coin designs. However, the major difference between bullion coins or rounds and tribute rounds is the metallic content of the blank. Tribute rounds are produced using blanks that do not have precious metal content. Instead, many tribute rounds are made from an alloy known as nickel-silver that consists of 60% copper, 20% zinc, and 20% nickel.
Collectible cards have long been popular among sports enthusiasts, with baseball cards typically leading the way. It is the rarity and condition of collector cards that have long made items like baseball cards valuable. New collector cards are being created with impressive art from distinctive artists. Like baseball cards, the value in these cards comes from the name recognition of the artist, the limited issue of each design, and the assigning of a serial number to each card.
Although these types of other products available from Provident Metals lack a precious metal core, that doesn’t mean you won’t find the visual appeal of precious metals. It is common for tribute rounds to be clad in contrasting layers of ruthenium and 24-karat gold. You may also find collector cards available with a foil layer of 24-karat gold or even a diamond-encrusted finish.
