- Great CoinShelby on 12/23/16
This is the best 1-oz private mint round out there. Very detailed, aesthetic, all from the best PM dealer around. I'll continue to stack these.
- Worth the waitJoseph on 12/12/16
Just received my Prospectors! Worth the wait. Excellent quality and very fine details. Nice strike and all well centered. These have a slight high-relief to them and they do not exactly stack perfectly straight. No big deal, but just thought I would mention it.

- Bang for the buckSheppard on 11/28/16
Very much detail in this coin I know the image you see on the web site shows somewhat sharper but look at the spot and you will spend more for less this is a bang for the buck
- OutstandingTerrance B on 11/23/16
These Prospector rounds compete 100% in detail features with any mint produced coins. Hold one and turn it to reveal the quality of Provident's minting. A real testament to quality made USA coinage.

- Fantastic service and product.Terrance B on 9/22/16
Just received some more to add to my Prospector stack. I think they one of the nicest rounds on the market. As usual Provident came through in fast order. If only the Cowboys could do the same.

- ONE OF THE BEST ROUNDS TO STACK !!!Adam on 8/4/16
Beautiful Round. Great Detail. Low Over Spot. This is the second best round to stack in regard to price/quality. Already purchased 30, about to get 10 more. Thanks Provident!
- High quality, low premiums.Stacker on 8/3/16
These have been my go-to choice when it comes to investing in silver. The high quality detail and low premiums consistently put them very close to the above spot price on other provident products like the 10-100 oz bars while being in denominations of 1 oz.
I will continue to purchase these and recommend them to other for these reasons. Thanks for the top quality product Provident.
- Bargain RoundJim on 7/24/16
I ordered both the Prospector and Buffalo with radial lines as a comparison to see which I would purchase in the future. The strike and overall quality of each is excellent! So I guess I will have to order both! I won't bother even considering the ASE anymore. Great job Elemental and Provident!
- Solid Arty RoundJim on 7/6/16
Nice hunk of silver which I feel comfortable holding in my oil free hands. The surfaces are mostly engraved with very few shinny areas to leave marks it makes it a round you can feel comfortable passing around the room without it getting finger printed to death, just watch who had it last.
This has always been one of the best values Provident has had, very low cost over spot.
Highly recommend this beauty.
- Real nice looking roundDavid on 6/15/16
Fast ship after payment is confirmed. Price locks in upon ordering, as long as your check is postmarked within 24 hrs.
- Cool designJames on 6/12/16
This is one of the coolest looking designs for a generic round. I really love the level of detail. You have to see it in person to really appreciate the round. I would definitely buy more.

Great looking, super detail. Can't stop ordering them.
- Beautiful!!!!!MICHAEL on 6/4/16
Provident is the best! This round is perfect and the detail is second to none! I will be buying a lot more in the near future. Provident please have specials on this round for 4th of July and especially for Black Friday. Shipping is super fast!
- productsJohn on 5/31/16
Very good quality products from this company, and a good price to boot. I love doing business with Provident Metals.
The only bad thing I can say about all the orders I have placed is: my post office is too slow getting my payment to them.
And that is not Provident Metals fault.
If you live in Texas closed to Dallas and you want your payment delivered as soon as possibly, take a little drive to Dallas County so your payment will get to them within 2 days. I live about 37 miles from Dallas closer to Fort Worth. My mail has to go to the Main Post Office branch in Fort Worth first, then to the Main Post Office branch in Dallas. It takes my mailed payment about 6 to 7 days to get to them. I mailed one payment to them from Dallas County, just to see how long it takes for them to get my mailed payment, and they got it in 2 days.
I wished there was a place that
you could drop off your payment
directly to Provident Metals in person, that way you wouldn't have to deal with the Post Office getting your mail there. The company would get there money faster and the buyer would get their would get their order sooner. Everybody wins if that was possible.
Merchant Response: Chandler<br><br>
Thank you for your review. We do have a window here at Provident Metals for customers to pickup/drop-off their orders. You are more than welcome to use this window to drop off payment Monday-Friday 9am- 3pm<br>

- BEST PRIVATE MINT ROUND EVERWILLIAM AND LAURA on 5/24/16
While I loved the old engelhard prospector rounds lets not kid ourselves..the Provident Metals Prospector puts it to shame. The design both front and back are so artistic. I fully expect that in time this round will have far more collector value, especially of they start dating them
- Very cool coinkurt on 5/24/16
I am new to silver stacking, but this is my favorite coin so far. Lots of detail in the coin. I got it very fast as well. I think it was two days after I placed the order.
- Nice RoundsJeff on 5/23/16
Purchased 2 of these with a larger order because of the reviews. Very pleased with the quality of the Prospector rounds.
- Commendable balanceAgStacker11C on 5/17/16
I place the Provident Prospector Ag coin(round) high in my favorites rating out of 100s of different coins in possession over the years. The design and artistic rendition of the prospector and his mule really captures the spirit of The Old West. A commendable job was done integrating the many elements of composition in a way that is well received by the viewer's eye. Always like a coin that has some flat/smooth field as in the upper third composition ... this round is well balanced artistically and appealing in many ways.
- HappyStacking AG on 5/13/16
Picked up a tube of these for a great price from Provident. Always happy with my purchases through Provident. Honestly, I'm not a big fan of the design but silver is silver. They have great detail and look good, I just prefer something a little less artsy. That's just my opinion though. As always great deal and fast shipping through Provident.
- good valuerobert on 5/10/16

- Outstanding!!Donald on 5/3/16
These rounds are beautiful! My jaw dropped when I opened my tube. Nice and more detailed then I thought they would be. Provident Metals has the best price anywhere, don't bother spending a week doing research trying to find a better price.(like I did) You will pay more for the silver as the price of silver will not be going down anytime soon.
- Awesome!!!George on 5/2/16
Beautiful rounds, good price, great service.
- Instant success !david on 4/28/16
From time to time I sell some of my private mint silver for a little cash and my local dealers will only buy a limited quantity. These rounds however are a huge hit with my local shops. No problems turning these rounds back into cash.

Consistently nice rounds
- Spot On!Paul on 4/9/16
Excellent looking round, very detailed, looks as good as a Gov't minted coin....I will be buying more of these as they are a great deal for silver, low premium over spot and quality is terrific, good enough for a Gov't recognized IRA which tells me that these rounds are as secure as coins but for far less money.
Provident is a great too, great prices, fast turn around time, packaged well and free shipping....what more could you ask for!
- great dealmichael on 4/4/16

- Beautifully Crafted !!E.E. on 4/3/16
This is one of the most beautiful coins I have found and is always priced right here at Provident Metals. Don't miss the boat on this deal of a lifetime. Silver can't go much lower than it is right now. I'm hooked on silver and will buy more when I accrue more discretional cash. Good Day....
- Brilliant!LifeIsGood on 3/25/16
This is a wonderfully crafted silver round. I was very impressed. I will definitely be buying more of these in the future

- LOVE THEM!!Timothy on 3/18/16
I have bought may of these rounds in the past. They are great for stacking and the best price on the net.
- Best Rounds for the price!David on 3/11/16
Just bought 42 of these and wish I bought even more. Most attractive design in my opinion among all the other similarly priced rounds. I have a good feeling I'll be back.
- Nice design & relief, for the price...Christopher WIlson on 3/5/16
I have to say, I am a bit disapointed with my choice to purchase 100 of these rounds. (Lets just say I'm glad that I didn't buy 1,000.) I got them for a steal, which is why I went for it, but there is just a little "Too much" going on in the design. With that being said - Silver is Silver, and these are certainly not bad quality rounds.<br><br>
I think I'll stick with Sovereign coins in the future, or Sunshine Mint's V2 design for generic rounds. (If you don't have them, get them. That's a great generic round design.)<br><br>
I'm currently waiting on an order from Provident for AE's & Britannias. I'm also purchasing the new Australian Kangaroos from them, which look like the best Obverse portrait of the old hag I have ever seen. Once I get them, I'll decide on the quantities of each that I'll be ordering from Provident.<br><br>
I'm new to Provident, but I think they will be my primary Bullion source from now until the foreseeable future. (Though I'll be steering clear of their proprietary products...)<br><br>
Great price, great speed of service, and great packaging. Average product.<br><br>
- Great Customer Service and Fast DeliveryThomas on 3/3/16
I typically pay with check in order to lock in the best price. I received my rounds today, and they all came in 20 piece coin sleeves. Thanks Provident! I'm very pleased with these rounds and will buy more in the future.

- Great ProductJoseph on 2/29/16
The Prospect are a great product, however, it seems that Provident has raised the prices. They now had tier buying as they do for Government Coins. They took the value out of the Prospect by doing this, now it's not worth buying. I rather buy an ASE or Canadian over a Prospect round. It seems somebody wants to make more money. It's ashame, but I guess part of business.

- Satisfied CustomerJoseph on 2/23/16
I purchased my first two rounds and am extremely satisfied. I'm a newbie to the silver and copper round collecting world. I am very happy with my choice of becoming a Provident customer. The Prospector silver rounds are stunning in person and shipping was top notch.
- Great Price and ValueE.E. on 2/21/16
I have been a Provident Customer for some time now. I have never been shorted or unhappy with their service. I don't visit local coin shops when I can get the cream of the crop right here at my finger tips. Thank you Provident!!!!!!!

Beautiful rounds arrived two days earlier than tracking indicated. This is becoming routine. Thanks Provident.
- NICE COINS GREAT DEALWilliam on 2/16/16
First time customer. Had I known how nice these coins are, I would have purchased more than I did. But I am getting ahead of myself. I placed my order on 1/30/16, and paid by paper check/snail mail. Received the coins today 2/16/16. A painful and impatient wait, but Provident kept me updated on the status of my order so the process while inordinately slow worked well. Plus I saved another 4% on the already great price. Am a happy customer and will buy again from Provident, no doubt!

If 1 oz. silver rounds is your favorite investment, the Provident Prospector 1 oz Silver Round is the best in the market! No matter what the price of silver is at any given time, the quality and price of this silver round can't be beat! Thanks Provident!!
- Better in hand! OUTSTANDING! Buy more!Mark on 1/30/16
Round exceeding my expectations by far! The round looks OUTSTANDING in hand. The design is really great. Even without any of that the price alone makes it a great buy for an oz of silver. Honestly think the design is among the best in modern times even including government coins. Great job PM!
- Chaa ChingAlan on 1/29/16
Looks nice and the price is even better, they are nice rounds, and if all you care about is how many oz of silver you can get for you dollar these are the ones. And it is free shipping over 99 bucks. I paid $303.20 +1.25 for a post office money order and 49 cents for a first class stamp came to 304.94 for 20 oz. Thats a Deal thanks Provident

- BEAUTIFUL, AND INEXPENSIVE!LinuxAssailant on 1/15/16
When I got some of these I was astonished at the detail for such an inexpensive round. These are my new favorites (until we convince Provident to start "Zombucks series 2"? )!
These are even the lowest priced rounds I can find on even any competitor's web sites in my searches.
- Cheap, But Not Truly CollectableSilver Lover on 1/14/16
The graphic details are truly beautiful and amazing for any price range, but the outer rim around the back of the round got bumps that are annoying. They focused on detail of the images, but not the finishing of the round. If you look at this round in person, you will agree with me on that the photos of this round do not do justice on how beautiful this round is. Nice and wonderful to hold it in your hand!!! Keep on stacking brothers....
- Provident ProspectorRJ on 1/11/16
I gave these to each adult who attended my wedding. I've bought many since then within numerous buys. A very attractive, well priced round.

BEST ROUND FOR THE MONEY!!!
- Nice rounds, ElemetalPETER on 1/4/16
Picked up a full roll of these. I have to say this, Elemetal BLEW me away with their 2oz privateer series. Anything in comparison will fall short, however at <$1 over spot, these are great investment material. First order with Provident, no problems.
- Excellent ValueJonathan on 1/4/16
No one else beats Provident for price or aesthetics. These are beautiful rounds. I gave some as Christmas gifts and the recipients were very appreciative. Don't go anywhere else to get your silver, you won't find a better product anywhere else. I just ordered 23 more!

I ordered several of this round from Provident recently, my first order with them. I am very happy both with the product I received and the purchasing experience. I have been doing business with other online metals dealers prior to finding Provident, but I will be bringing my business to them from now on.

Beautifully done!!!!old time coin with a old timer price!!!
- Very PleasedMisry on 12/19/15
These arrived in a very timely fashion as I am coming to expect from Provident. The rounds have the sharp edges and burrs one associates with newly minted rounds. I took away a star because the pictures create the impression that they have an almost proof-like luster to them but what little may have been missed in brightness is more than made up for by the exquisite details. The price might be, currently, low but the value makes these the go-to item for stackers.
- So far so good.Eddy on 12/19/15
Let's put it this way, Prospector rounds look great in detail and are not too costly. The bars are not too bad either. If it wasn't for e-checking being down I would definitely place many more larger orders. But so far all of my deliveries have been fast and in great condition.

Nice looking coin, looks even better in stacks of 20. Provident has treated me very well to this date. I will continue to do business with them in the future.
- Timeless designMichael on 12/13/15
I was finally able to pick up a couple of these and I'm very glad that I did. The details are awesome on both sides of this round. The design conveys the timeless spirit of giving it all you've got to try to make your own way on your own terms. I think that's what I like most about it. Will definitely be getting some more.
- Superb WorkmanshipNorman on 12/11/15
These are great pieces....the workmanship is superb....the packages are discreet in nature....when purchasing other than 20 piece sets that come in the coin tubes it is great that we can purchase air tights for these and other rounds...the customer service is both professional and personable...Norman

- Very happyJohn on 12/8/15
This is one of the more attractive silver round designs I've ever seen. I got a great price and am very happy with the product. Something I hope Provident can work on is the processing time. Granted, I paid with a paper check, but even after Provident marked the order as "confirmed payment", it took them a few days to ship the order. Also, believe it or not, I think shipping by USPS would be quicker than the UPS shipping took. Full turnaround time including mailing the check, clearing the payment, processing and shipping the order was 24 days from placement of order to receipt of package. Still, I'm very happy with the product and with Provident Metals and will order again.

- InterestingRJ on 12/6/15
My wife and I just got a roll of these together over a few weeks, and just love the detail and price of these rounds. The 'interesting thing' about 12 of these we just received say "One Ounce .999 Fine Copper" but they are silver! Misprints are nice for coins so...what about bullion? Anyway some are gifts for the holidays which will make for interesting conversation. Thanks again for these great rounds - even if they are misprinted!
- Nice detailShane on 12/6/15
Very detailed silver piece. I sold most my silver stack when it went in the 40$ an oz price range. I always missed it, now that the price is back down I am happy to say I am stacking again.
- Nice Rounds--Great Value!Farah on 12/5/15
The 1 oz. Prospector rounds are beautifully designed and flawlessly stamped, typical of Elemetal Mint's product line. Coupled with Provident's marketing and value-based offerings, I give these a full five-star rating and highly recommend to those seeking 1 oz. silver bullion.
- great job !chris on 12/3/15
discreet package, lowest price anywhere i could find , appreciate free plastic tubes, gonna get many more - warm and fuzzy feeling now - very happy!
- Nice Rounds!John on 12/3/15
Nice detail, maybe a bit rough on some edges and these are obviously not treated with kid gloves in the minting process as the samples I examined had the odd edge dent and defect but all in all, nice for a round. Low premium makes these a nice buy compared to the boring alternatives out there. Would be nice if provident started using dates to add a bit more value possibility for those looking to "collect" but these are really just for metal value plays.

I placed my third order with Provident Metals, this time it was for 63 of the 1oz Silver Rounds on November 17, 2015 and it arrived on November 23, 2015 (5 business days total). Thank you Provident Metals for a great service and product. God bless America and God curse the enemies of America !!!
- Prospector RoundsMichael on 11/24/15
This is my second order and I am extremely happy. I have historically dealt with another bullion dealer, However, I have found the selection and prices better with Provident. The shipping is extremely fast. The Prospector has turned out to be one of favorite rounds. Very pleased customer and highly recommend for a stacker with limited budget.

- BEST DEAL AROUND!!!!!Gary on 11/17/15
Ordered a few rolls of these and they are really cool. Great quality, awesome detail and super price. A beautiful generic round. Order more while silver is low!!!!!!
- Cool rounds, lowest priced silverJim on 11/16/15
Nice clean detailed rounds shipped promptly and packed nicely. <br>
I have shopped a good deal of online sellers, it seems Provident has the lowest prices across the board than any I have come across yet.<br>
The Prospector 1oz round were only .84 over spot.."ya can't beat that!"<br>
If you want silver for the lowest spot silver sake and do not care about a limited edition or a fancy coin like an American Silver Eagle, then the Prospector is the round to purchase due to it's low over spot price especially if you send a money order, check, the lowest way to buy silver if you are into buying small quantities as I do.<br>
It is a very busy coin, meaning tons of art work and would definitely make a nice Christmas or Holiday gift.<br>
I am very happy with the quality and service and will be buying again, I think I found my site for buying silver...finally.<br>
- Crazy cool and great price!wayne on 11/16/15
These are great on the wallet and great to look at... That topped with the free shipping on orders over $100 makes it so us small guys can enjoy seeing what you have to offer... At this low price over already low spot these are a winner!<br><br>
I had got a few of the Kangaroos before and now wish I had saved the cost/ spot and got a few more of these instead... Lesson learned!<br><br>
Thanks for the opportunity to be able to get these at such a great value!<br><br>
- BEST DEAL AROUND!!!!!Gary on 11/16/15

These Provident prospector rounds are the best value available. The are minted from exquisite dies! You won't be disappointed! Really beautiful rounds.
- Great Quality - Needs Mint MarkBrandy on 11/13/15
The quality and attention to detail on these Prospector rounds are excellent! I find them to be the best rounds I've purchased. I only wish that Provident would incorporate a mint marking of some sort on all their rounds ... OPM or Elemetal or whatever. Even a unique Provident mark.
- great productDeano on 11/10/15
I just received my first order of prospector rounds they look great just as advertised I have already ordered more prospector rounds and just for fun a silver maple and a turtle cant wait to get them so I can tear them open and enjoy them its more fun than chritmas

- Provident metal the bestvito on 11/6/15
I purchased about $80,000 in coins from A***X. What I later found out is that they were charging me over $2 more for Generic Silver rounds than Provident was and that for NUISMATIC coins, omg, they were over charging me $100-$200 or more than Provident or anyone else for that matter was. In the end, I got nothing more by being a loyal "Platinum" client, so I looked else where and found P.M. Their rounds are made with such quality and artistry, its all I purchase now.....and the Propspectorm is only $00.75-80 cents over Spot...who else does that? def not A***X, they also in ending, will quote a price for a coin but then when you place that coin in your cart, find out the price is different....by $2....actual bait and switch. Anyway, P,M Keep up the great work.

Got my order today and cant stop looking at my prospector rounds, super fast shipping , great package ,and will be back for more , 1005 happy with all my order and Provident..Would love to see this round in smaller size too ...
- Time for some new diesjeff on 11/1/15
On my most resent purchase of the Prospector round I noticed that the reverse side is now looking grainy and no longer has the sharp crisp detailed strike we love in the coin. The obverse is still fine but, IMO it's time to replace the old dies on the reverse side! These are still a good deal for the price for an oz of Ag and my favorite round from Provident.

I know the American Eagle are more popular but I just love the Prospector. It reminds me of my hometown, which was once a mining community. Thank you for such great service.
- GREAT VALUE!G.W. on 10/29/15
I order from a variety of online silver brokers. Provident has become my primary source for silver. They offer competitive pricing and free shipping. The prospector rounds have a pleasing appearance and are a favorite with my customers.
- BEAUTIFULArnie on 10/22/15
You guys are awesome. Thank you for making a fine product and a convenient marketplace.

- It's a Keeper !!!RICHARD on 10/6/15
I'M very impressed reed edge, super deep detail front and back, I have ordered these twice. Out 1 away in a air-tite as a keeper. will be giving some away as Christmas presents, and a low over spot price to sweeten the deal. If you don't have any yet, this is a must order.
- One of my FavoritesRoger on 10/5/15
This Prospector Round is one of my favorites, the detail is remarkable both front and back. I have purchased several rounds but none as good looking.
- Great for the price.Greg on 10/2/15
This was my first order from this company, and I have to say that I am very happy with my purchase. These are pretty good quality rounds for the price. And I got them in two days with standard shipping. Granted, I am in Texas, but I was still pleasantly surprised to get my order so fast. Thank you Provident for the great service, and I can hardly wait to order from Y'all again.
- Awesome RoundScott on 9/28/15
Very Beautiful and worth every cent.
- Nice rounds - too busy?GaryK on 9/28/15
I like the silver rounds from Provident Metals. They ship quick and have competitive pricing. I am happy to report ALL of the silver rounds I have purchased during the sub $15.00 silver market is gone. Customers are very happy with the product. Some seem to think this round in particular is a bit "busy" when it comes to the design. I kindly remind them that in the end, it is all silver and the design is just an added bonus. Soon, I will be in the market for several hundred ounces, and Provident Metals in my choice for select bullion purchases.
- AwsomeDan on 9/20/15
Great detail in a private mint round. The low premium equals more silver for the buck!

- Curious hedgingJames on 6/22/15
These were my first purchase on my stacking journey. When I opened the 20 pack case it made that great air sealed popping noise. And when I saw it. Wow!! Smile from ear to ear. Everything about the process from website info....to competitive pricing...to swift shipping. Gave it four stars for now but as the buying and variety continues. Provident will get 5 stars!!!

- Unique ProductGerry on 5/19/15
This is one of the nicest rounds I have ever seen. The detail is fantastic.
Provident is a great place to do business.
- Nice roundAbry on 5/18/15
I buy mostly for the Price=troy oz, but while at it like to have different rounds and bars. This is not a matte or a mirror finish round but more like a semi-gloss round. I have no issue with matte, mirror, or semi-gloss silver, and own many of all three types. This one is nice, lots of details, arrived perfect, and is one of the better detail rounds I have seen. I likely will buy a few more of these.
- Best Deal Bar NoneElvis on 5/13/15
I like the detail on these Prospector Silver Rounds. I bought them at a great price and plan on stacking up some more of these. When the Poop hits the fan what are you going to use to buy things? Yeah......Fiat Paper Money.... With nothing to back it up. Bet this never gets posted.

yes the look better in your hand, got a tube of them and happy I did. also was happy with the 5 and 10 oz bars. the only way this could get better is if they would do a kilo coin or bar. if you ever do sign me up.
- Awesome Round for the pricePeter on 5/12/15
This is one of my favorite "generic" rounds. Low premium for a great looking round. Nice 3D relief on the rounds too. I might have to buy more if they have another sale. (Hint, hint Provident)

I have been dealing with Provident for a number of years. I am particularly happy that they have finally gone to a fund transfer, so I don't have to wait 10 days or so for the check to actually clear their bank. This product is as nice looking as any coin I have ever seen. the detail is fantastic.
- Favorite Round!Lacoocheeman on 4/27/15
These have become my favorite Silver Round. Looking forward to receiving my first 5 oz Prospector bars. I would spring for a 10 oz and a kilo in this design if available.
- A little offStryver on 4/11/15
I gave the round a 4 star rating for a couple of good reasons.
1. Excellent Value
2. Excellent concept and design
The only thing I was disappointed with, was the detail. The coin pictured has amazing detail; you can see the wishers in the prospector's beard, the different layers in the cloth rolled on his side and the bone structure in the donkey's face. The round I got was kind of bland I'm the details and the round is not as shiny. I am not a collector. I have an eye for detail and just wanted to give a fair review of the round. I like this round no doubt, but if you are a collector it may not be the round for you.

I ordered the rounds on February 20th, by check, and I finally received them on the 11th of March. Other than having to wait so long, everything else was great. The rounds are worth waiting for! Excellent quality in craftsmanship as well as a very unique design! Will continue to purchase them. Great product, Provident!
- "GREAT PRODUCT FOR THE BUCK"Robert on 3/10/15
One of the best buys for the money. Why pay more for the big name ones silver is silver. Provident you people do a great job and when you say you ship you follow through. THANKS
- OverallMichael on 3/6/15
I have ordered several of these rounds and have been extremely impressed with the quality of these rounds. Their are a lot of little details in this round! So much that I find myself looking at these all the time! All I can say is that if you don't order them it is better for me because I will defiantly be buying more!
- Superb detailingDave J on 3/2/15
Just received my first order of Provident's Prospector silver rounds. I agree with earlier reviewers, this is an outstandingly detailed design that's been beautifully implemented. I'm particularly impressed by the reverse, with the compass, sextant, map, and wooden tabletop. It makes me want to set one of these up on a stand so I can look at it and appreciate it frequently. Hopefully this is a round that will see wide appreciation for its design, so that it becomes recognized by stackers and by the industry for its quality and authenticity. Even if it weren't one of the lowest-priced rounds available, it would be worth buying for its looks. And yes, as another previous reviewer noted, on the actual round you can see the mule's third leg. But I'm still kind of wondering about the fourth. . . :)
- Great Round!!! Love it!Nicholas on 2/25/15
This was the first silver bullion purchase I have ever made. I am so glad I chose this round. It is just beautiful and everything I was hoping for. Thank you!! Just put in an order for my first bar and can't wait to get it:)
- nicesteven on 2/25/15
very nice 1 oz round, nice and shiny, picture gives the impression that some features are blackened but its just silver colored, I bought these when they were 17.52 and they had the any quanity list price and now a week later they have bulk pricing which I personally think is ridiculous but im pretty sure it has something to do with their new "free shipping" they started, still a nice round though
- Suddenly overpriced???Arthur on 2/25/15
Here I was early this morning checking my Provident metals site to look at silver prices and one of my favorite looking rounds was priced comfortably at about 76 cents above spot. Then about lunch time there is an entire new pricing hierarchy and this round is now 1.76 above spot. I see this also affected other rounds and bullion offerings. Provident gave free shipping with one hand and then raised the price of many of their offerings with the other hand. NOT VERY HAPPY with Provident today!!!!! Going to vote with my feet if this doesn't change back soon
- Really Like these!BrutalScion on 2/24/15
These are amazing! Definitely going to buy more! If you're thinking about doing it just take the leap you wont be disappointed! ^^
- Look at the reviews... One after another 5/5Brian on 2/23/15
The reviews are true. I just ordered my first round and these really are incredible. They blow away 9/10 of the generic rounds you find and the price is comparable. A++ Provident. I look forward to more rounds from you!
- Don't buy this rounds. I want the rest of it.Paul on 2/21/15
People, please don't buy these rounds! This is the best looking round with amazing details. At 77cents above spot, it is also the one of the least expensive rounds. It comes with the Provident's own special unique tapeless self-locking case for each 20 ordered. It also comes with Provident's own green monster box case for each 500 ordered. I have purchased other OPM rounds and other generic rounds for as low as 59 cents and 65 cents above the spot price, but this is a quality round at the lowest possible price that should be selling for about $2 to $3 above spot price.
Please don't buy anymore. The Provident will run out of it soon, and I will be stuck buying other rounds that are inferior.
- great looking silverjohn on 2/19/15
working on my 4th order from here, have purchased several different 1oz. rounds & I must say nothing but the best, great price great customer service & very fast delivery. thank you for such a great experience, look forward to doing more business with you.
- Best Silver Round for the price!Fred on 2/16/15
This is a very...very well done Silver round I'm surprised there is not a $2.00 or $3.00 premium on this one..only got two hopefully can get some more on next order...as always service was great.
- Great!Edward on 2/13/15
Makes me want to go out, and get a donkey. I highly recommend these rounds. I recommend them even more when you can catch the price down, and Providents low premium, made me all warm when I opened the box today. Run right out and buy about 60 oif them. Do it now before the price goes up any more. Now, do it now.
- LOVE IT!!!!!!!Eddie on 2/7/15

- Impressive ProspectorRoundRobert on 2/1/15
Fine detailed artwork, beautifully rendered with great craftsmanship at a low price! Even nicer than the Engelhard Prospectors. I"ll order more, but suggest that they be dated or that the design (even as nice as it is) be somewhat changed in future years for collectors to distinguish one from another. Also, perhaps you could offer a small order bundle that includes a protective capsule.
- Keep Um ComingJeremy on 1/31/15
Ordered several shipments of these now. All come perfect and the detail and price make these perfect. Keep them coming Provident.
- Great DetailBrentyn on 1/30/15
Great looking silver round! I ordered 2 to see what they look like, and I was totally shocked by the detail! Had to order a few more and I don't normally purchase silver for the art! Nice work Provident Metals, I can't wait to see what you come up with next!

This is great round, the detail on the coin is incredible for the price. This is a round the maker can take pride in.
- First time buyerAlex on 1/21/15
I'm a long time watcher and a first time buyer. So that means 3 - 5 shipping days. I was on the phone in 3 and they were polite every time. I ordered 5 different silver rounds and the cheapest, I think was the best.....the Prospector. It has a lot of detail. I had to get rid of them gloves and spin it with my fingers (I like the way it sounds when it goes down) But the best part if it was gold instead of silver....Just kidding Provident! Thanks

- Great Looking RoundRobert on 1/16/15
Purchased 3 of these and I'm very satisfied. This is the best looking silver round I've ever seen from a private mint, great design on both front and reverse. This would make a spectacular 5 ounce round. I hope that Provident is considering that.
- AmazingJeremy on 1/15/15
Others have said it but until you see them for yourself you don't get it. The picture really doesn't do these justice. Bought 30 of them and got them today. Absolutely gorgeous rounds. Will be putting in an order for more.

The prospector round is nothing short of awesome !!! You will not be dissapointed ordering this offering from provident. The pictures do not do it justice. Once in hand one can start to really appreciate the detail that went into making this round. 5 stars

This was part of my first order with Provident and I am very pleased. I will be buying more silver/gold through Provident in the future.
- Easily the Best Looking Round I OwnArthur on 1/7/15
AMAZING DETAIL!!! Purchased one each of the rounds and bars with my order to compare before I started to purchase these in larger quantity. Both my wife and I agree the round is more detailed and nicer looking than the bar. Its an amazing piece of art!! Provident, I would like to see them dated to make them more collectible and also so I know when I purchased them.
- Exceptional DetailEdward on 1/7/15
This round will definitely catch your eye, the detail is absolutely stunning. I've ordered many different designs for a mix of variety in my collection. These Prospector rounds are one of the most detailed and beautiful of any I've purchased. The Standing Liberty, the Morgan Dollar, and the Mercury Dime are beautiful pieces but the Prospector has surpassed those fine rounds and has become my favorite. Provident never fails to deliver high quality at a fair price and now with the E check option even faster delivery time for the cash discount pricing. Keep up the great work Provident and I'll keep coming back. Thanks for the terrific service.

- Very Nice Silver RoundsDavid E. on 1/5/15
These silver rounds are very detailed and come in pristine condition. The best generic silver round that I have purchased.
- Amazingly Detailed! My new favorite round!severalethos on 1/4/15
WOW! Really, I could write a page on this round, but, I will keep it short. If you are a fan of awesome things, Buy This!
My tube of 20 came padded with a packing peanut and shipped very securely. Every round arrived with basically the obverse and reverse of every coin completely unscathed! The reeded edges were dinged in spots and the rims were moderately scuffed and nicked, but that's what the rim is for, to protect the rest of the round from wear.
Each round is a work of art! Yes, they are even better than the picture, and, yes, the donkey does have a third visible leg on the actual round. :) Everybody should get at least 1, so you can know if someone is trying to trade you a counterfeit, however, you will realize upon looking at your genuine round that it would be futile to attempt a counterfeit of these. The beautifully detailed and varied raised surfaces of the round provide an intrinsic anti-counterfeit device that rivals the genius behind the very best coins that dollars can buy.
- Nicest Bullion coinPhilip on 1/3/15
If you want the nicest private minted coin at low cost, this is the one to stack. Impressive and attractive. Forget Buffalo and plain OPM rounds! And the Rounds are much nicer than the Prospector Bars, too. These should come in larger sizes.
- Don't hesitate to accumulateLawrence on 1/1/15

I also agree they should put a date on them because the early buyers should be treated special for recognizing such a great design. Been purchasing from Provident for a while now and been stacking rounds for the long term. No need to hesitate, this is the best place to buy physical silver.
- Excellent ValueTimothy on 12/27/14
I order forty of these outstanding silver rounds. I think these are probably in the top three of all silver rounds I have ever seen for detail and workmanship!!! I think these push the envelope for comparison to the American Eagle! These I believe are going to be very collectible!!! I will be ordering many more!!! I am really glad I switched from JM Bullion to
- More detailed than some non-generic rounds.Adam on 12/26/14
Wow, this coin is very nice. Not just for a generic round but for any round. I bought just one with another order to check it out. I like to buy rounds in batches of 20. On my next order there will be an oder of 20 of these beautiful rounds. Believe the other reviews!
- Amazing roundDavid on 12/23/14
This is the 1st time I have ordered from Provident. Shipping was FAST from order to receiving my order! I ordered 25 of these. 20 for me and 5 for a friend. The detail in this round is amazing for the price of a bullion round. Provident has a new dedicated buyer.
- Start dating these!Chris on 12/19/14
Purchased a tube of these. Absolutely exceptional quality and design for a "generic" round. Provident definitely needs to start dating these if they plan on keeping the design for any length of time. Looking forward to the 10 oz bars!
- Great RoundJames on 12/9/14
This is one of the best piece that I purchased...Full of details. Just one comment, what happen to the hind legs of the donkey? From this vantage point it should shows at least one hind leg.
- Beautiful round....very happy with themKeith on 12/8/14
Very nice round. Great detail and mirror finish. Shipping was also quick...received within five days.
- Where's the date Mc?Judie on 12/4/14
I must agree with Abdon. Really wanted these dated. For those of us who are early purchacers - our coins should be worth more later on for being the first year. So on the 2015 coin maybe you will put the date on them or put a bandana on the donkey. Something to distinguish between the first and second year. A Monster Box would have been a given if there had been a date on them. Still the best round I've ever seen!!!
- GeorgeousAbdon on 12/1/14
This is one of the best generic rounds I have ever seen, superior to their more gimmicky 'limited edition' rounds. I think Provident missed the boat big time in not putting a year on these.
- Superior MintDanny on 11/28/14
By Far The Nicest Silver Round That Money Can Buy!!!
- unbelievableDoug on 11/27/14
Love it so glad providentmetals made more. Unbelievable design and attention to detail always pleased.Will be a customer for a long time
- Buy ThemJohn on 11/22/14
You can read through all the reviews until you have been convinced to order, or just click away and do it now! They are spectacular from the detail to the finish. A+++ Round.
- Rustic beautyHLS on 11/19/14
Provident: The details on this round is beautiful. You should definitely consider making them in 5 or 10 ozs as well. Hopefully, you have already considered that :).
- THE #1 GENERIC ROUND!!!MICHAEL on 11/19/14
I agree with the many reviewers who think this is the ultimate "generic", in terms of overall beauty and fine level of detail. I hope the next batch of these will be available soon, I'm ready to add to my stack. I wish these had been available many years ago, when I was buying much poorer-appearing rounds, and that I could magically swap all my other rounds for more of these!
Agree with other reviewers who think free shipping should be available for $1,000+ or 100oz buys.
- DetailedJustin on 11/18/14
I like this coin. Started off with one, then once I saw it in person got 10 more. The premium is cheap given the detailed and beauty of the design. I only wish it had a low mintage. I think Provident is minting to demand, similar to what the US mint does for the eagle. One of the coins I got had a gash on the rim, but what ever, it's an ounce of silver.
- Excellent productMTH on 11/17/14
Received my NASCAR Prospectors today. Well struck, excellent design and detail, no obvious flaws. The busy designs will hide nicks and scratches well. Wish they had a company logo/trademark somewhere. But very pleased.
- Bringing Sexy BackDANIEL on 11/15/14
Wow...these are AMAZING. The artwork/design as well as the quality of the minting are incredible. As others have said, the stock photos on here don't do these justice. I'll definitely order more. Maybe a whole MB if silver continues to drop and they are in stock at low premium...LOL.
- Super QualityElbert on 11/13/14
I'm not an every day buyer, but this is one of the most detailed silver rounds I've seen in a while. When they become available again, When they restock them I will order more. The detail is supreme. Looks much better than Engelhard.
- Very nice roundMichael on 11/12/14
I took advantage of the Josh Wise promotion and bought some of these. I wasn't expecting anything exceptional, but that's what I got. These are very well struck, the details just pop off the round. These are much nicer than I had anticipated. Keep up the good work.
- Great detailed roundshannon on 11/10/14
This is a really great looking coin and by far the best looking round for the money when compared with some of the other mints standard rounds. We bought some silver and copper examples after Nascar race, too bad our car came in last place but still a good deal. A couple of the coins were under 31 grams, but my scales could be off, the others were fine. We have bought about 40 coins from Provident and they are always perfect, no dings,scratches, scuffs etc. I hate exchanging but I have not had to do that with Provident yet.
- EcstaticJason on 11/3/14
Ordered 100 of these last night. With the NASCAR promo...$16.43 a round w/shipping. Glad I did cause this morning 25,000 of them are sold out! Can't wait to get these in my hand and in my safe. I read the reviews and know I made a good choice with these beautiful rounds. My only advise to Provident: if your customer spends a $1000.....SHIP THE ORDER FOR FREE! You would get so much more of my business. Other than that, very pleased.
- Thanks JoshJudie on 11/2/14
So glad I ordered soon after the car race to get the special price. Now it's sold out. Too bad Josh came in last, but still a great price!
- Relax!Kevin on 11/2/14
If you missed the NASCAR sale, don`t worry. I`m sure Provident will be restocked shortly. As for the sale price, at the rate Pm`s are dropping, you will probably be able to pick up some prospector rounds in a few days cheaper than what the sale price was today. I got a tube of them a couple weeks ago and the detail, design, and quality are top notch. I'm impressed. And I'm not easily impressed.
- A great buy!Barry C on 11/2/14
Like this a lot. An amazing amount of detail. Really would be great in a larger size!
- the prospector in all of usFrank on 11/2/14
seems this coin has so much history behind it and the hard work that over the ages that broke the backs of many men ,that the effort and detail that went into this making of this coin just stands out compared to many other coins I've seen Great job ! & I commend providentmetals for selling at a great price as well to investors/collectors.
- A TRUE WORK OF ART...Roger... on 11/1/14
The Provident Prospector is such a clever way to store ones wealth... A true work of art, stamped into a one ounce round of silver... How can a person go wrong with something as clever as this...???
- niceJustin on 10/31/14
May not have much numismatic value, but...dang, this is a beautiful piece of silver. Couldn't help myself from picking up more after spot dropped today. Agree with other reviews, this needs to be in 5oz to to be
- The Best Round I ownGerald on 10/30/14
I have collected a lot of silver rounds, including the Englehard Prospector, but this Provident Prospector blows that away. It contains amazing detail. Of all by silver it is a hard choice between the ATB Great Smoky Mountains or this one. With this amount of detail I would like to see this as a 5oz piece. You will NOT be disappointed with this round.
- The Best Round I ownGerald on 10/29/14
I have the Englehard Prospector, but this round blows that away. The detail is amazing. Of my entire collection its a toss up with the ATB Smoky Mountains or this one as the best. I would love to see this in a 5 oz . You will not be disappointed with this round. I would trade many other of my rounds for more of these.
- ex cell entJoe on 10/27/14
- A Sweet looking 1 oz. RoundDon on 10/24/14
By far one of the best artistic generic rounds in the silver bullion market! "The Provident Prospector" Great site Provident. Excellent service as well.
- ExcellentJaguarXFR on 10/22/14
Excellent round! Very well designed and detailed. I would love to see a 2 or 5 oz of this round. Until then,
I may need to pickup a few more.
- A fabulous bullion coin !Gary on 10/20/14
Its a tough call if I like these better, or the Provident "Morgan" 1oz silver bullion round. Great products both For stockpiling away for when the $$ vaporizes.
- Prospector 1 oz RoundLeon on 10/19/14
5 stars easily on this round. One of the most well struck detailed rounds in my collection.Provident out done it's self on this one. I also would like to see a 2 and 5 oz. versiont. I know they would be great sellers. Also received the order very quickly. Always get my orders from Provident in a timely manner . Peace,Love & Happiness to all.
- Outstanding round!Elliot on 10/19/14
I have a wide variety of coins and rounds, and can without hesitation say that this is by far the most detailed and best looking generic round I've ever seen. It puts Engelharts "American Prospector" round to shame as downright crude and cheap looking. I could not detect any flaw in the strike. Did I say it was detailed? Individual grains of the table on the reverse are distinguishable--uncanny for any government issued coin--let alone a generic round! I'd say in terms of quality of workmanship, the only products out there that can compare with this very inexpensive round are the far more expensive Perth Mint products (Lunars, Kooks, and Koalas) and the Chinese Panda. I suppose the P-versions of the 5 oz ATB coins from the US Mint are up there too. I don't think I'm exaggerating here. Very pleased!
- OutstandingSteve on 10/18/14
I can't add much that hasn't already been said. This is the best looking silver round that I have ever seen. It's detailed intricate design adds richness and it is priced low.
- My 2nd review on the Prospector!Donald on 10/18/14
Folks, my first review just didn't cover it all, so I submit this one. I purchased a Provident Triplet 10X loupe and I have been going over my coins in great detail (please read my brief review on the loupe, you'll find it under coin supplies). Looking at the Prospector under magnification will blow your mind! I cannot believe this is a private mint generic round, it's that amazing! What else is there to say??? Just this; you can pay too much for your precious metals, or,??? You can purchase them from Provident Metals! It's a simple choice, really.
- Beautiful PieceRoger on 10/17/14
The photos on the site do not do this piece enough justice. Beautiful artwork on both sides and I especially love the reverse and detail in the all over strike - no empty space and lots to look at. Hard to keep my eyes off of it. The only thing I would like to make this one even better would be a date and limited yearly strike to bring up the collectability. But as is its definitely worth the value.
- SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL! , FANTASTIC DETAIL!Charles on 10/17/14
This is an Amazing piece! The detail is incredible. The strike is Crisp, Clear, and Sharp. Wonderful work of ART!
If only our own Mint could execute such fine degree of Design and Craftsmen ship. This piece will be hard to beat. ( I double dog dare ya )!
- Extraordinarily attractive!Dale on 10/16/14
The success of the craftsmanship necessary to create this round is astonishingly wondrous, and demand a 5-ounce (or larger) version to show off the world-class detail packed into this perfect, exquisite work of art. No matter how high silver may ever reach, this stays in the house as something special to admire. Bravo!
- There’s a new prospector in town!Donald on 10/16/14
It’s the Provident Prospector! This round is beautifully designed with wonderful detail, both obverse and reverse. Amazingly struck at the mint, it’s flat out gorgeous! Yes ladies and gentlemen, the old prospector is long retired, and there’s a new king on the block! This round may be the most attractive round on the market and will take Provident to the next level! Get some today! Note to Provident: I concur with the others that a 2oz and 5oz would sell like hotcakes.
- Favorite Coin!Montana on 10/15/14
This is coin is beautiful. I am buying more.
- Superb! Very niceJames on 10/13/14
This is just another example of your being the best site to work with. It's just fun, when my newsletter arrives. This round is very nice!
- Simply incredibleNice Day for Silver on 10/12/14
What a beautiful strike on this round. An outstanding piece of silver bullion from Provident Metals. Get at least one...but then you'll want more...believe me. These are a fantastic buy for silver stackers...I highly recommend this Prospector round.
- Blown away by the craftsmanship!Brian on 10/11/14
I received this coin a few days ago and am absolutely blown away by the craftsmanship. Well done! I agree with others that you should consider a larger proof of perhaps 5 oz. You really knocked it out of the park with this one!
- Best "Generic" Round7man on 10/10/14
Just receive mine today. The detail is amazing and no other low premium round compares. My tube will be saved and I will show off or give away some of the loose rounds for Christmas. I would buy these again and may buy another tube because of the low premium and the beauty of this round.
Even though I pay with a Money Order, Provident ships fast since they do factor in my account history. I have bought from other sellers and have no complaints, but Provident is the best!
- larger sizes neededMichael on 10/10/14
I agree that a 2 or 5 oz would be awesome!
- Great RoundThomas on 10/8/14
Please make a 5 oz proof. I will definitely buy it. 2 oz would be okay also.
- 5 STARS AHEAD OF TIME !!!Ronald on 10/8/14
I HAVE A NEW ORDER OF SILVER ROUNDS COMING TODAY, And I know they will be in excellent condition, as ALL my last orders have been !! they (all my past orders) have that perfect crisp sharp strike to them, it does not make sense to go else where for silver bullion !!! I will keep on ordering from Provident metals as long as I have a dollar in my pockets !!! you cannot find a better made, high quality, great price silver bullion round any where else !!! The more I order the better they get !!! Thank you Provident for the great care and top quality of all your silver bullion rounds and bars. P.S. And also they have the best ever variety of silver bullion to choose from, way more then anyone else !! I am a life-long customer @ Provident !!!
- I agree with Silver 1911Alan on 10/7/14
Please make these available in larger sizes!!!
- Showing it off!!!Alan on 10/7/14
I have one of these in my pocket and am showing it to friends, family and coworkers. This is an absolutely beautiful silver round. In fact, I don't think any government could mint a nicer coin. The detail is fabulous; you can see the wrinkles in the miners face!!! I have already ordered two tubes of these and will certainly be getting more. They would make a nice Christmas present!
- AmazingBrian on 10/7/14
Nicest rounds by far Ive ever purchased. The depth on this coin is amazing and the details are stunning! great job Provident.
- Awesome new roundSilver1911 on 10/7/14
As already mentioned, if you made these in larger sizes ( I would buy 2,5,10 and kilo sizes ) ...they would fly off the shelves. Nicest rounds on the market.
- AMAZING!jeff on 10/6/14
I got out my magnifying glass to get a better look at this new coin. After that I had to add to my review. I just can't believe the time and effort that must have went into making this coin! The level of detail is simply amazing!!! The grain of the wood table, the stone in the hills, the chaparral, the hair of the mule, the lases of the boots, the lettering and measurements on the tools. This is truly an achievement. No one, anywhere can match this Provident medallion! Not Perth, not the RCM, not the USM, Not the mint in Mexico city, not the German mints that make the Somali Elephants and Noah's Arks nor the British mint, not the Austrian mint and certainly no private mints. NO ONE MATCHES THE QUALITY OR DETAIL IN THIS COIN! No one, anywhere! Provident, you are now setting the standard for every mint on the planet!!!! Your people deserve so much credit! To all those who made this medallion possible I say again, thank you.
- Really, Really, NiceJeff on 10/6/14
Just got them and they really nice, front and back. Well done. The old prospector picture is timeless. The quality of this coin is five star, and the price... WOW. They're asking less than most do for some cheap knock off round! Thanks Provident, You continue to blow us away!
- My new favorite roundal on 10/4/14
I received a bunch of these and have to say they are a very impressive!! There is so much detail on both the front and back...just a really great silver round at a great price. Thumbs up for this one Provident Metals. Definitely will be buying more and more.
- Exquisitely Beautiful!Ron on 10/3/14
Mine arrived today and it is stunningly beautiful! There is a great deal of very fine detail work on this coin. Especially on its reverse side! It makes a great companion for my Englehard, "The American Prospector," round.
Thank you, Provident, for your expeditious handling of my order. I'm sure I'll be back for more.
- BeautifulSeth on 10/1/14
Provident scored big with this round. Excellent design and detail.
- Great looking coin!Damien on 9/29/14
I agree with Phillip, these coins looked amazing on the website so I had to pick up 2 just to try them out. If they look any better in person then they do on here, I will definitely be picking up more of these and as low as silver is right now, these are a GREAT buy! Great job PM!
- Saving hard for these.phillip on 9/27/14
Very awesome! Jumped right off the page at me. I cant wait to get some of these. I hope you make them in 2,5,10, oz and kilo.I would like to have a gold one ounce of these.I think you will have a big hit on these rounds. Thanks Provident for being so creative with your designs.
- nicely detailed coin, a must have!!!!paydirt on 9/26/14
A very nice coin, lots of details. A must have!!
Get Provident Prospector 1 oz Silver Rounds for as low as ONLY $0.69 over spot!
Provident Metals is pleased to offer a premier silver bullion round, the Provident Prospector 1 oz Silver Round, from a diverse selection of privately minted silver. This silver round is manufactured at the Elemetal Mint using the industry’s most rigorous production quality and metal purity standards, and consists of investment grade .999 fine silver. Because the rounds are made in the ISO9001 certified Elemetal Mint, the Provident Prospector may be included in a self-directed precious metals IRA.
The obverse of this 1 oz silver round features a rugged prospector holding a pickaxe and a sifting pan. He stands in the rugged Sierra Nevada mountains next to a mule. The obverse also features the inscription “PROSPECTOR”. The gold prospector of the 1840s represents our innate desire for prosperity and our spirit of adventure.
The reverse of the Provident Prospector features a map, compass, rope, and sextant on a rough wooden table. The inscriptions “ONE TROY OUNCE”, and “.999 FINE SILVER”.
Each of these beautiful silver rounds is manufactured at the Elemetal Mint, which is a joint venture between Provident Metals, NTR, and Ohio Precious Metals. These three industry leaders are united by the common goal to offer high quality, investment grade bullion at the lowest possible price. The Provident Prospector is the embodiment of that goal. Though the Provident Prospector is beautifully crafted and consists of 1 ounce of .999 fine silver, it is consistently offered at the most accessible price!
Also, because the Provident Prospector 1 oz Silver Round is manufactured by a privately owned and operated mint, it carries a much lower premium than its sovereign minted counterparts. Silver coins, such as the American Silver Eagle and the Canadian Silver Maple, are produced and backed by sovereign governments, and carry a much higher premium than privately minted silver bullion rounds. The savvy investor will be able to maximize buying power by diversifying with privately minted bullion pieces.
Each round will ship in New Condition. Individual rounds ship in a plastic flip, quantities of 20 in a plastic tube, and 500 in a strapped monster box.
Protect your Provident Prospector with a 39mm Plastic Capsule!
