Silver Rounds

Silver Rounds at BGASC

Silver Rounds are a popular option for investors and collectors who are looking to invest in silver bullion without breaking the bank. At BGASC, we have a wide array of popular Silver Rounds that contain unique designs, and even popular coin designs. Learn more about Silver Rounds at BGASC, right here.

What is a Silver Round?

A Silver Round has the appearance of a Silver Coin but lacks a face value. This indicates that the Silver Round is not backed by a central bank or government. Due to this, Silver Rounds are typically cheaper than their coin counterparts. Silver Rounds also typically have no mintage caps.

Popular Sizes

Popular coin series, such as the American Silver Eagle, release silver coins in just a 1 oz size. However, Silver Rounds are usually available in numerous sizes, including fractional-ounce weights. Some popular sizes include the following:

  • 1/10 Troy oz
  • 1/4 Troy oz
  • 1/2 Troy oz
  • 1 Troy oz
  • 2 Troy oz
  • 5 Troy oz
  • 10 Troy oz

Historical Designs

When looking at Silver Rounds, you’ll notice many popular options feature coin images throughout history.

  • Buffalo Nickel: SilverTowne, Sunshine Minting, and the Golden State Mint, among others, are some private American mints known for recreating these designs, such as the Buffalo Nickel from James Earle Fraser.
  • Morgan Silver Dollar: The Morgan Silver Dollar was in circulation from 1878 to 1921 and was one of the most popular coin designs. Lady Liberty is on the obverse in left-profile relief while a heraldic eagle is shown on the reverse.
