Osborne Mint is offering a collection of iconic American coinage designs re-interpreted in one ounce of .999 fine silver. Four classic sculpted profiles will be re-modeled using modern techniques to achieve unheard of design depth and detail. These rounds are 10 times deeper than standard deep relief rounds.
The elaborate detail is evident at first glance where two things immediately catch the eye. First, because the round is convex, the resulting obverse image towers over the surface and every single dip, swirl, cut and facet is enhanced. The second is that a super deep mirror image is created on the concave side. The impression is so deep that it will actually hold water.
Not to be confused with replicas, these rounds are a new twist on familiar coinage that collectors will covet for their unsurpassed quality and intricate detail.
The first in the series in the proud Indian from the 1913 Buffalo nickel and is currently available. Second, in the series is the 1893 Morgan Dollar with the female bust representing Liberty. Third in the series is the Abraham Lincoln portrait, immortalized on the US penny for over a century. The second and third in the series are set to release in Summer 2019
The fourth release is the Kennedy Half Dollar – originally minted in 1964 to memorialize the 35th President of the United States who was assassinated in 1963. The release is scheduled for Fall 2019.
The American Legacy series is an Osborne Mint exclusive. Each round is edge numbered and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity. The rounds are enclosed in custom fitted capsules that emphasize the depth of the design and protect the silver from tarnishing.
The collection is manufactured in the USA by Osborne Mint, the oldest private mint in the United States, with continuing operations since 1835. Products made by Osborne are manufactured to strict standards for metal purity, weight and dimensions. The O/M mint mark graces the back of every series and every design we sell.
