We are Selling and Buying Silver Rounds
Here at the Honest Gold Guy of Sarasota, we are selling and buying silver rounds. You may, or may not know a lot about these silver coin like rounds. Most people today do not know much about silver as only 4% of the U.S. population invests in silver.
What are silver rounds? The rounds are usually made of .999 fine silver, but they can also be made of .925 sterling silver like is popular in England. The most popular sizes are 1 ounce, 1/2 ounce, and 1/10th ounce rounds. Usually the rounds are designed to be similar to coins.
Silver rounds are usually made by various mints who refine silver. They will have the name of the mint, and the coins purity stamped on the rounds. Since these rounds are made of .999 silver they are softer than silver of lower purity levels.
Many of the .999 rounds are bought by investors who are stashing them expecting silver to appreciate, or as protection against a fiat currency collapse. 90% pre-1965 circulated coins are also saved as an insurance policy against currency collapses, and inflation.
Silver rounds are popular gifts purchased by companies, friends, parents, and grandparents. Many of the mints make up Christmas Silver Rounds, and other beautiful silver rounds to commemorate Patriotism, Celebrities, Culture, Popular Bands, Events, and Occurrences of Historical significance.
Occasionally a silver round can become a collectible, where it sells for much more than it’s silver content would justify. Such is the case with Silver Rounds of The Grateful Dead, Jackie Kennedy, Elvis Presley, Olympic Commemorative Rounds, and others.
Many of the mints produce silver buffalo rounds that resemble the turn of the century buffalo nickel coins. Others resemble older U.S. Liberty circulated coins, and today’s U.S. mint coinage. As these silver rounds are easy to recognize, they are usually easy to sell to dealers, and other investors.
Some of the more well known brands of rounds are Engelhard, Johnson Mathey, Sunshine Minting, Ampex, and others. Some of the popular brands of rounds are no longer produced. There are many other lesser known mints that produce generic rounds.
We buy and sell silver coins and rounds. We usually have small quantities of silver rounds for sale, as well as some 90% silver coins, U.S. Mint sets, and more.
